Lechon the National Dish of Philippines
Partytime, and we all enjoy Lechon….
Lechon is a famous pork dish that begins with a suckling pig that is roasted over charcoal.
It originated in Spain and spread throughout all the areas where she had former colonial powers.
It is the national dish of The Philippines and Puerto Rico.
Lechon has a long cook processing.
You have to roast the pig for 4-5 hours depending of the size of the pig you want to cook. But it’s worth the wait. When it’s cooked and done properly the
Lechon should be crispy skin outside, juicy, flavorful and tender in the inside.
