This is a popular luau offering and is a national dish of the Philippines. Let your guests know that there are peppercorns in the sauce so they can avoid biting into them. The sauce has a strong vinegar flavor that is balanced by the pepper, soy sauce, and garlic. Depending on your preference, you can use another cut of pork or even all chicken thighs.
1 (1-pound) pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut into (2-inch) pieces

8 garlic cloves, crushed
1 bay leaf
