Lechon Kawali

Mom is on a cooking mode again. This time, we tried the Maggi Lechon presented by Chef Boy Logro of Idol sa Kusina cooking show in Channel 11.

Think lechon kawali and you’ll be thinking of pork liempo swimming in oil.
This version of lechon kawali is the “healthier” version (baked) than the traditional lechon kawali which is deep fried in oil.


Boil 1 kilo whole liempo in about 2 liters of water with 2 packs of pork granules for 45 mins or until tender. Remove from broth and rub with 2 pcs 8-gram MAGGI MAGIC SARAP. Let stand for 15 minutes.

Wrap liempo in foil and bake in a 350 F pre-heated oven (I used our turbo
for this, setting it to "Roast"function) for 1 ½ hours or until golden and crispy.

Let the liempo rest for 10 minutes before chopping into serving pieces.
Serve with lechon sauce or your favorite dip.

hi joy, thanks for dropping by. try it! it's so easy. sarap pa..

hello anonymous. you are right, hindi na dapat lechon kawali ang tawag dyan. i check with the recipe from Idol sa Kusina, it said Lechon only. sa bahay kasi we still call it lechon kawali kahit na luto sa turbo....
