- Marinate the pork in a bowl with the rest of the ingredients for 9 to 10 hours (mixed well), minus the potatoes and parsley.
- Now, add the pork along with the marinade to a large saucepan over low heat and let it simmer for 30 to 45 minutes.
- Reserve and set aside most of the liquid in the saucepan and turn the heat to medium-high.
- Saute the pork for 5 minutes until it becomes a nice browned color.
- Add the chopped potatoes to the saucepan along with the reserved marinade and stir it well.
- Turn the heat back to low and let it simmer for another 1 and 1/2 hours (until the pork and potatoes are well tender).
- Once the pork is done, remove from the heat and pour into a serving platter.
- Sprinkle with the chopped parsley and serve while hot.
