Lechon Paksiw

Lechon Paksiw

If you have left over lechon from media noche like I did, what else would you think you will do with it?
Well, top answer would be Lechon Paksiw!  Ahmm, just so you know, I just bought a kilo of lechon baboy for new year's feast and not the whole roasted pig :)

See that crispy lechon skin? Yum!!!
I want a thick and saucy Lechon Paksiw...
 Bring out your pot, put in together the chopped lechon, add about 1/4 cup of vinegar (more or less as desired), a bottle of Sarsa ni Mang Tomas, bay leaves , chopped onions and garlic, salt and black pepper (to taste), a little sugar, and about a cup of water. Bring to boil, and cook for about 10-15 mins over medium low heat. And so Lechon Paksiw it is!

Have a happy and delicious new year ahead!!! Cheers to 2014!
