Lechon Kawali (Crispy Pan-Fried Roasted Pork)

Recipe by Kikais Kitchen

A super quick and easy comfort food when I'm feeling homesick ... I thought it'll be worth posting as there seems to be no recipe on Lechon Kawali posted yet.

This is what I would do when making roast pork - boiling ensures that the meat is cooked through. The only difference in my method is that I prefer to roast the meat in an oven at the highest temperature to get that crispy crackling (yum!) instead of deep frying which causes splatters. It's healthier that way.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the pork belly into serving pieces then combine with the garlic, peppercorn,laurel leaves, salt and water in a pan.
  2. Bring to a boil and simmer for 35-45 minutes or until skin is tender.

  4. Deep-fry liempo pieces in batches until golden brown and blisters appear on skin.

  6. Enjoy!
