Easy Oven-Roasted Lechon Kawali Recipe

Easy Oven-Roasted Lechon Kawali Recipe
  • 1 slab of pork belly (liempo, lechon kawali cut) approx. 500 – 750 grams
  • pot of boiling water
  • rock salt
  • aluminum foil for wrapping
  1. Boil water – add a tablespoon of salt after it simmers (if you put salt early, it will take longer to boil as salt lowers the temperature of water)
  2. Put in slab of pork belly, cover pot and boil for 45 – 60 mins. or until tender, depending on size of meat
  3. Before meat gets fully cooked, pre-heat oven at 200°c (about 390°f)
  4. Take out the cooked pork, drain and let it rest for a few minutes
  5. The pork slab will shrink after boiling
  6. Tip: Score the top layer of the skin into squares (this way, it’s easier to slice through the meat when the skin gets toasted after roasting).
  7. Rub about 1 tablespoon rock salt all over the cooked slab, making sure the skin side is well seasoned
  8. Wrap in foil, exposing only the top
