Lechon Kawali (Pan-Roasted Pork)

Lechon Kawali

Lechon Kawali (Pan-Roasted Pork) is my mom’s favorite Filipino food dish. When I have a time to cook back then, she’ll request me to make some. She even asked the recipe so that whenever she craves for it, she can cook lechon kawali (pan-roasted pork) by herself.
