    1. Using a fork, prick the liempo all around to ensure the salt and sugar will be able to penetrate the meat. Set aside.

    2. Mix the rock salt, sugar, and prague powder in a bowl. Rub and cover the meat with the mixture. Place in a covered container and refrigerate for 3 days.

    3. After 3 days, remove the liempo from the mixture and wash the meat very well to remove the excess salt.

    4. In a pot, mix DEL MONTE 100% Pineapple Juice with ACE, brown sugar, beer, and star anise. Add the drained liempo. Bring to a boil and simmer until tender.

    5. Once tender, remove the liempo from the sauce and place it on a tray. Sprinkle the top with sugar, then, using a hot iron or sianse/turner, pat the meat to allow the sugar to caramelize.

    Chef`s Tip
    If you do not have a hot iron, broil the liempo in a broiler or oven until the sugar caramelizes.
