Filipinos created lechong kawali (maybe with Chinese language affect) as an try and ‘imitate’ the succulence of a lechon with out all of the fuss. Though this straightforward pork stomach dish isn’t roasted, it’s cooked twice: by boiling and deep frying. Some recipes require a second deep fry to attain that crispy pork pores and skin. Historically, the pork stomach is cooked in a kawali therefore the identify, however any deep pan can be utilized.
