Philippines’ Lechon Baboy

Philippines’ Lechon Baboy

or Roasted Pig

Lechon is one of the most favorite food here in Philippines, and it is widely served during special occasions, a favorite by many.

Lechon is a whole roasted pig, some put different kinds of veggies/spices/herbs in the belly, others brush olive oil or butter to the skin before roasting it.  Others prick the skin while others don’t.  Cooked over live coals.

This is really mouthwatering and full of cholesterol.  Most people attack the skin first… lol when it is ready to be eaten, imagine that crispiness… yum yum, makes my mouth water already.

Last week, my mom celebrated my nephew’s birthday and Christening and this one was part of the food served.  Boy oh boy, I was the one who was in charge in chopping it, and of course the first one to take a piece of that crispy skin.

It was sooo good, but of course if you have highblood, you shouldn’t be eating this… There were other foods served, like king prawns, fried big fishes, crabs, but the lechon was the best of all.  Of course most people here consider it as the best of the best, imagine a whole roasted pig lying there on the table ready to be eaten.  A whole lechon can be bought for less than US$100.00, depends on the size.

Plenty of ways to cook the left over by the way, and one of the most used recipe is that of lechon paksiw, where you cook the leftover lechon in its gravy with some peppercorns, vinegar and sugar.

Enjoy the pics, hope your mouth is watering also…:D
