Lechon Paksiw

LECHON PAKSIW-is a term associated to a dish that is cooked with vinegar, garlic, onion and sarsa or mang tomas sauce. Lechon Paksiw is a Filipino pork dish made from leftover roast pig which is known as “Lechon”.

Aside from using leftover lechon, fresh pork can also be used to make lechon kawali. This dish is also a practical way to recycle leftover lechon, Instead of reheating the same dish over and over, making paksiw out of it makes the pork more flavourful bringing more life to the ingredients.

But this time I made my own version of lechon paksiw, I used fresh meat here instead of leftover from lechon.
