When C got his job offer to Qatar one of the question was is pork sold there? Nope it’s not. And when we all move to Dubai that question pop up once again. Yes it is available in selected stores here.
I think one food/dish that’s included on the list of things we miss back home is Lechon (Suckling Pig). Did you know that the Philippines is #1 on Anthony Bourdain’s Hierarchy of Pork List? Imagine our hunger after watching the shows feature of our home country at 11pm. That led me to prepare our very own version of lechon away from home.
To prepare bake lechon: boil pork belly with 2 laurel leaves, 1 cinnamon stick, 1 tsp of whole black pepper, 3 star anise, 1 whole red onion, 1 head garlic, and about 3 tbsp of salt for 30 minutes to an hour. Marinate the meat on the boiled water overnight. While you preheat oven (top and bottom heat) at 220C remove belly from water and let dry for 20 minutes. Bake for an hour or two till skin is golden brown.
you beat me to the pork belly post 🙂 Looks lovely and so does the new site!
hehehe 🙂 I was actually waiting for your post then I had nightmares and just need to make one for us. Post yours soon!
I am going to faint. I miss lechon like crazy and more so when I saw these pics!! Waaaa!! Off to Spinneys I go today to get pork belly!!
go! bake your way to a yummy lechon for dinner. 🙂
I love the crunch, the crackle of the pig skin. I love the layer of salty pig fat underneath. I have to try adding star anise. That sounds like a wonderful addition that I haven't tried.
