Paksiw na Lechon (Roast Pork stewed in Vinegar)

Lechon is usually not that good the next day as the skin loses its crispiness.  So what do you do with leftover lechon?  You make Lechon Paksiw!  The pork is stewed in a combination of vinegar and lechon sauce which produces a sweet and tangy dish.  Yummm!!!

  2. Add vinegar and water and bring to a boil.

  3. Add lechon sauce and brown sugar and stir to combine.

  4. Add pork and bay leaves.

  7. Season with salt to taste.

  8. Remove from heat when sauce is slightly thickened. Serve hot.


For the lechon sauce I use Mang Tomas brand.
