Lechon Paksiw (From Leftover to a New Dish)

in food •  14 days ago 

Lechon is a popular dish in the Philippines, but of Spanish origin. It is also popular in other countries, particularly those colonized by Spain. Here in the Philippines, it is usually served in common occasions.

My brother's sister-in-law recently passed the exam which certified her as physician. She had thrown a blowout party, and there are lots of leftovers, particularly with lechon. I am wondering what to do with the leftover but I decide to cook another dish, which is Lechon Paksiw.

The Ingredients

Of course, this is the main ingredient, the leftover lechon. It's already sliced, so this has minimized work.

Onion and garlic chopped into bits, and bay leaves (dahon ng laurel). The latter gives an aroma that's enticing.

Mang Tomas All-Purpose Sauce. It was already spiced, and has some liver on it. It wasn't as good as it used to before.

Liver spread. This will make the sauce tastier. A small can of it will do.

Other ingredients:

  • Water
  • Salt
  • Sugar
  • Vinegar
  • Black pepper (whole)
  • Soy sauce

Cooking time

As the sauce thickens, spread out the leftover lechon evenly in the sauce. Cook until the meat is tender.

After the long process...

This is the finish product.
