I hate wasting food. I have some left over Lechon, and I don't feel like eating it the way it is. Anybody know any Filipino dishes I can cook with left over Lechon?
You never heard of paksiw
It's like asking if there's anything to do with an orange after eating the peels!
Jokes lang, I lab yu.http://www.pinoycook.net/paksiw-na-lechon/
^That is more or less the recipe my family uses. A lot of the other ones I got from google just seemed weird haha.
Paksiw in my family isn't too sour. In fact it's kinda sweet. Experiment with the whole sweet sour thing until you get a taste that you like. But I think the main reason why my family's paksiw tastes so different is because the sarsa (lechon sauce) we use is really weird. It's made by this brand called Garnet Food Co... I think it's only sold in and around Toronto but it's a VERY thick sauce and doesn't taste like the classic 'Mang Tomas' sauce at all. It's MAGICAL. Gastronomically orgasmic.
Paksiw is technically a style of cooking but in my fam paksiw refers to paksiw na litson
since there is no other reason why we'd be making paksiw in the first place lol... It's just the thing you do after you've bought lechon and haven't finished it all hahaha.
Anyway, good luck! Can't believe no one else replied to this! I should check food chat more often.
