Cooking lechon paksiw is a Filipino dish that I recommend on many kinds of left-over meats, even fish! So don't throw those just yet. Let's make something out of that roasted pork, chicken or duck.

Cooking Lechon Paksiw (Left-over recipe)


Read on and learn more about my lechon paksiw recipe. It's a simple home-cooking dish that you'd enjoy doing.


Lechon or litson is roasted pork cooked on burnt coal. That's the traditional way of cooking lechon in the Philippines, at least. "Lechon kawali" however, is cooked by deep-frying pork portions (e.g. butt, belly or knuckles). On the other hand, paksiw is a dish cooked in vinegar or other acidic elements (e.g. kamias, tamarind, tomatoes, etc.). (In fact, here's another paksiw recipe you may want to check out.)

Now, "lechon paksiw", is cooking lechon (usually left-over ones) in vinegar with a sweet kick of thick pork sauce. You can use Mang Tomas Sarsa or Andok's, for instance. If you don't have these brands from where you are, you can use barbeque marinade or create your own thick pork broth. (Now, that one calls for a separate post... wink wink! :) )

Let's begin!

Ingredients in cooking lechon paksiw:
- left-over lechon, cut or chopped
deep-fried spare ribs, deep-fried pork belly, fried fish, roasted chicken or duck can also be used for this recipe
