Paksiw na Lechon (Roast Pork in Liver Sauce and Vinegar)

Do you have left over lechon (roast pork) from last night’s party? You can make it into “paksiw na lechon”. This is basically spinning left over roast pork into a different dish using the left over liver sauce served with the lechon and adding vinegar. Most paskiw na lechon dishes usually are done with left over lechon, but by all means, you can intentionally purchase roast pork (or lechon kawali, “deep fried pork”) from your local Filipino restaurant to make this timeless dish. This dish accomplishes two things: 1) to make left over food into a different dish and 2) make the dish less prone to spoiling since it is vinegar based.
