I just had the urge to post these pics! It's almost lunchtime and I wana get some!! Where's my rice??!! hehehe A lil bit of tabasco and soy sauce works for me. Mang Toma's Lechon sauce is good too!
Lechon Kawali (Crispy Pork) aka Chicharon
- 6 C Pork belly or side pork (equal parts fat and meat)
- 4 C Water Salt to taste
- 4 C Cooking oil
- 1 bottle Mama Sita's Sarsa ng lechon (Sauce for Roasts)
- MSG to taste
Combine pork, water, MSG and salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer until the pork is tender. Drain the pork and cool. Prick skin with fork and rub with salt and MSG. Leave in colander to dry for one hour. Heat cooking oil in a deep fryer or wok at high heat. Fry pork until golden brown and crispy. Cut into serving pieces and serve with Mama Sita's Sarsa ng Lechon (Sauce for Roasts). Also may be served with fresh tomato slices mixed with harm-ha (fine shrimp paste) sauce as a side salad dish.
This recipe is similar to the lechon you can buy from Northstar Deli or Christina's Chicharon in Honolulu, Hawaii. If you are lazy to cook just go there to buy it! Also good to add into mongo beans yum!!"
Above is the recipe I posted on Alohaworld a while back! Enjoy!
(pls note these pics are not my own. I'll post my own pics when i get some!)
