Lechon Pares Recipe

 Lechon pares, or pares as it is commonly known, is a meal that consist of Pork asado (pork stewed in a sweet-soy sauce), garlic fried rice and a bowl of pork broth soup. The soup may originate from the broth in which the meat is simmered in until tender before being seasoned with the sweet-soy sauce but it can also be prepared separately and be made with pork bouillon cubes instead.
