Low carb dish inspired by the Filipino breakfast Tosilog. garlic fried cauliflower rice, tomatoes drizzled with hot and spicy cane vinegar, tocino marinated pork chop, fried egg, marinade with extra soy sauce and hot and spicy vinegar reduced to a sauce, sautéed bok choi topped with fried shredded sweet potato an onion rings.
I wanted some tocino, but I only had pork chops in the fridge, so I made a tocino marinade. This time I used salty liquorice syrup from Johan Bulow Lakrids instead of anise liquor. My brother had told me that he had used Sambuca or Hot and sweet to make tocino, so why not this liquorice syrup. Since I am using the salty kind I did not need to add any salt to the marinade.
HERE is a previous Tosilog Recipe and post.
4-6 pork chops
3-4 minced cloves of garlic
4-6 bok choi
