  • Preheat oven to 180° C (350* F) Fan.

For the marinade

  • Beat the 50 g of olive oil, chicken bouillon cubes and chili flakes in a food processor until completely combined.

For the pork

  • In an empty 30x40 cm baking pan, spread out the rosemary, thyme and garlic.
  • Add the meat on top.
  • Add the marinade and spread it all over the meat to coat.
  • Add the water to the baking pan and cover with parchment paper and then with aluminum foil.
  • Roast for 3-3 ½ hours.

For the glaze

  • Place a pan over medium heat and add the sugar, cinnamon, cloves and ginger. Stir.
  • As soon as the sugar starts to melt, add the pineapple juice from the can and the coca cola.
  • Stir and boil for 10 minutes, until the mixture thickens.
  • Transfer to a bowl and set aside.

For the pork 

  • Place another pan over medium heat and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
  • Gently press on each of the boiled potatoes with your hands until you crush them.
  • Add them to the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes until golden on both sides.
  • Remove the baking pan from the oven. Remove the aluminum foil and parchment paper and add all of the juice from the baking pan to the pan with the potatoes so that they can soak up all of the aromas of the meat.
  • Add the mustard to the pork and spread it all over.
  • Then cover the whole surface with pieces of pineapple and secure with toothpicks.
