Lechon Fried Rice

When we are talking about lechon leftovers first thing that comes to mind would be Lechon Paksiw but there are other things that you can do with that scraps of roasted pig, you can use it as a filling for pita breads or even use it as a main ingredient in your fried rice like this recipe that we are going to post today. While this works well with leftover Lechon Kawali the spit roasted Lechon can also be used provided you deep fry the meat pieces first to have that crunchy texture.

  1. Fried rice is such a staple at our house, however will have to remember to deep fry the pork first to give it that crunchy flavour next time. So no soya sauce in your fried rice?

  2. Rice and pork together? Please, sign me in…I would love to have more than one bowl of it!!!
