Combine pork tenderloin, salt, coconut sugar, minced garlic, pineapple juice, and black pepper in a bowl. Leave in the refrigerator to marinate overnight.
In a pan over medium-high heat, place tocino. Add the marinade and 1/4 cup water, cook until liquid is reduced. When pan is almost dry and marinade is syrupy, stir frequently to allow meat to cook evenly. Once meat has caramelized, remove from heat.
Serve with rice and egg, if preferred.
