Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
white onion, thinly sliced

Tbsp. oyster sauce

Step 1

Peel and core pineapple. Cut half of the pineapple into bite-size pieces (about 1″); set aside. Chop the remaining pineapple into small pieces and transfer to a small saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until very soft and broken down and nearly all juice is evaporated, 15–18 minutes. Transfer to a blender and add ¼ cup water; purée until smooth.

Step 2

Heat 2 Tbsp. oil in a large Dutch oven or other heavy pot over medium-high. Lightly season pork with salt and pepper. Working in 2 batches, cook pork until well browned on all sides, 5–8 minutes per batch. Transfer to a plate.

Step 3

Reduce heat to medium-low and add onion and garlic to the same pot. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant and softened about 5 minutes. Return pork to pot and stir in pineapple purée. Add vinegar, soy sauce, oyster sauce, peppercorns, bay leaves, and ¾ cup water and stir to combine. Bring to a simmer and cover the pot. Reduce heat so adobo is at a very gentle simmer and cook until pork is tender 45–50 minutes.

Step 4

Meanwhile, heat the remaining 2 tsp. oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Cook reserved bite-size pineapple pieces, tossing occasionally, until golden brown all over, 5–8 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

Step 5

Uncover the pot and skim off any fat from the surface. Increase heat to medium and cook, uncovered, until sauce is thick and shiny about 15 minutes. Gently stir in caramelized pineapple. Remove and discard bay leaves.
