Filipinos are quite inventive when it comes to turning left-overs to tasty new dishes. One good example is lechon or whole roasted pig cooked over charcoal. Lechon paksiw is chopped left-over lechon stewed in liver sauce, vinegar, and different spices making it a totally different succulent dish.

Here’s the good part, you don’t need lechon or roasted pig to enjoy this sweet and tangy pork stew. The simple process of frying the pork in a pan then stew with the liver sauce gives it almost the same delicious taste.

Why this recipe works!

Any pork cuts can be used with this pork paksiw, but I do suggest cuts with some layers of fat so it will render when frying.

You don’t need left-over lechon to make this recipe. But if you do, it’s the same process. Just add the left-over lechon after sautéing onions and garlic.

Pork paksiw is so easy to make and can be ready in 40 – 45 minutes depending on how long the pork tenderizes.

Tips for best results.

When adding vinegar, do NOT stir and do NOT cover. let it simmer until the aroma of the vinegar dissipate. Then give it a quick stir and cover until pork is tender.

Fry the pork first without any cooking oil over high heat. The fat rendered will help cook the pork until nice and browned.

Add more water if needed if the pork is still hard then season as necessary.

Crispy pata also works great with this recipe. Chopped it up into small pieces and apply the same process of cooking.
