Paksiw na Lechon
Paksiw na Lechon or Lechon Paksiw is a Filipino dish made from leftover Lechon (roasted pig). It is cooked by simmering or stewing the leftover lechon pork with soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, onion, sugar and lechon sauce. You can use left over Lechon Kawali or Crispy Pata or Oven Lechon when making this flavorful lechon paksiw dish.
With this Paksiw na Lechon dish I used left over lechon pork belly roll given to me by an Instagram friend who specialized in lechon belly roll. He once had a Filipino restaurant in Plano, Texas so no wonder it was so delicious, juicy and melts in your mouth that nothing can go to waste.
Last Christmas the kids gave me this awesome Mealthy Multipot, a 9 in 1 programmable pressure cooker 6 quarts stainless steel pot so I figure this is the best time to use and share. It is amazing how this Multipot works so expect more new recipes to come using my new kitchen toy.
This Paksiw na Lechon is so delicious and worth a try. If you don't have a Multipot to use, check related recipe links below on how to make Lechon Paksiw the old fashion way.
