A New Twist on a Classic Dish

Oven-roasting has always been my preferred method for cooking lechon kawali and crispy pork shoulder. Little did I know that I could achieve the same taste and appearance of a roast pig by rolling pork belly into a log, stuffed with lemongrass. It was during a family event in Northern California that this revelation occurred to me. The centerpiece of the party was a whole Lechon, mostly untouched among a wide variety of food. As I stared at the remaining carcass, I realized that turning the belly into porchetta would have been not only more economical but also a fancy alternative for any occasion.

The Magic of Low and Slow Roasting

Last weekend, I made a massive oven-roasted pork belly that left me in awe. The low and slow roasting method magically transformed the belly into the moistest meat with the crispiest crackling I have ever experienced. Each juicy pork morsel was begging to be dipped in liver sauce! Trust me, this is a dish you’ll want on your Noche Buena table!

Essential Tools and Serving Tips

To ensure the best results, you’ll need a few essential tools. Kitchen twine will come in handy for securing the meat into a log shape, while a roasting rack will allow heat to circulate evenly around the pork. Remember to place a pan beneath the rack to catch any oil drips.

Once cooked to perfection, serve the Pork Belly Lechon Roll alongside steamed rice and your favorite dipping sauce. Its crunchy skin will stay intact for longer than most lechon recipes, so be sure to serve it uncovered to maintain its crispiness. However, keep in mind that this dish is best enjoyed fresh, as the skin tends to lose its crunchiness over time. Use any leftovers in dishes like pinakbet, sisig, or paksiw to savor every last bite!
