This dish involves braising chunks of pork, sautéing them until crisp, and then cooking with some braising liquid as the pork slowly caramelizes. Ti-Malice, a Haitian condiment, is named for a trickster in voodoo mythology. It's a piquant, sour sauce, a foil to the sweeter pork. For the most authentic taste, serve with rice and pan-fried plantains. Garnish with cilantro leaves and serve with lime wedges, if desired.

  • Place pork and marinade in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add broth; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 1 1/2 hours or until meat is tender. Remove pork from pan with a slotted spoon, reserving cooking liquid. Strain cooking liquid through a sieve into a bowl; discard solids. Place a large zip-top plastic bag in a bowl. Pour reserved cooking liquid into bag; let stand 5 minutes. Snip off 1 bottom corner of bag; drain liquid into a medium saucepan, stopping before the fat layer reaches the opening. Discard fat. Set 1/2 cup cooking liquid aside.

  • Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add pork; cook 10 minutes, turning to brown well on all sides. Add reserved 1/2 cup cooking liquid and remaining 1 tablespoon lime juice. Increase heat to medium-high; cook 4 minutes or until liquid nearly evaporates, stirring occasionally. Place pork in a bowl; pour sauce over pork.
