Home Cuisine Lechon Paksiw

Lechon Paksiw

Paksiw is a dish cooked in vinegar and Lechon is a whole pig slow-roasted (with frequent basting) in a bamboo skewer over charcoal for several hours – the result is  succulent, tender meat and crispy skin–really mouthwatering-delicious! Oh my, I’m drooling!! 😛

Lechon is a staple on special occasions and during Holiday season; this dish, lechon paksiw is what we usually do with leftover lechon, if there’s any. My in-laws always usually have lechon whenever they have a party or sometimes for no reason, just a “pasalubong” (a gift) for them from my mother-in-law’s sister whenever she comes for a visit from the province and we are lucky because they always send us some knowing that it’s my husband’s favorite. 🙂

Cooking lechon paksiw  is just like cooking adobo but I like to saute garlic and onion first then the lechon for more flavor although some don’t really add garlic or onions anymore. Paksiw has more vinegar than adobo, which makes it tangy and somewhat sweet because of the brown sugar added and peppercorns provides the little heat; I like to add red chilli flakes whenever I have some to give my lechon paksiw more zzing!

I didn’t put the quantities of ingredients because I don’t really measure anything when making this. It’s a matter of tasting it as you cook, let your taste be your won’t ruin it don’t worry just don’t add a lot of water so it’ll be easier to adjust the seasonings.

Lechon or roast whole pig is delicious when hot off the roasting pit; any left-overs is usually made into paksiw na lechon which is so delicious, too!
