This dish is rich in vitamin A that helps maintain healthy vision and skin. It is also a source of vitamin B1 that plays a role in muscle contraction.

Chef's Tip

Rubbing the pork with salt and sugar helps to cure the meat like ham. With the overnight marination with pineapple juice and syrup, the pork sits in a brine which helps add flavor and at the same time preserves the meat.
