Lechon Kawali Recipe (Pan-Roasted Pork)

Lechon Kawali
Lechon Kawali Recipe is my family’s favorite Filipino food dish. My son and daughters love them and of course my husband love them too. When they ate this Filipino dish, they asked for the sauce which is a mixture of vinegar and patis (for bisaya) or tuyo (for the tagalog) and add some garlic, it taste so good.

Anyways, hope you’ll enjoy this simple lechon kawali dish.
