After the marination, transfer and pour it in a large pot. Then, add the remaining  pineapple juice, pineapple tidbits, bouillon cube and seasonings.

Boil the pork slab and mixture and simmer over low heat. Let it cook for about 1 and 1/2 hour until the meat is very tender. Your pork should look glazed and shiny.
