Lechon Kawali Recipe in Turbo Cooker

Updated on January 6, 2011

Lechon Kawali Recipe

There is actually an alternative to cooking lechon kawali aside deep-frying it. This method is using a turbo cooker. There are so many things you can cook using the turbo cooker and ideally it's healthier and even cheaper because you don't have to use so much unhealthy cooking oil. There are many other things that you can cook on a turbo cooker such as the crispy pata.

Similar to the lechon kawali is the famous Bagnet Recipe from Vigan. I do not really know the full difference but I think it's with the cooking method. The method is actually quite time-consuming for the bagnet whereas for the lechon kawali it is relatively easier. I think only the boiling part is the long part but other than that it's pretty easy. You can go ahead and serve it with the typical sarsa or sauce used. It can even go great with spicy vinegar or atchara (pickled papaya) to add a bit of acid to the rich flavor of the deep-fried pork. If you're aware of the typical crispy pata sauce then you can even use that. That's just soy sace, vinegar, some onions, and whatnot.

  • liempo (pork belly)
  • garlic
  • peppercorns / black pepper
  • salt
  • water

What makes this method different is we won't be using cooking oil. We will be using the turbo cooker. just set it at the right temperature and at around 30 to 45 mins (depending on how much you cook) you will be done cooking. The slow cooking of the tubro cooker adds to the soft texture of the pork meat while still preserving the crispy quality of the outside part of your meat. This harmony in textures will surely be an ultimate delight.

I've actually tried cooking crispy pata in a turbo cooker before and it's actually quite better and the idea that I didn't use much oil and to see so much oil drip on my turbo cooker machine was really a relief.

After boiling the meat for around 30 to 45 mins or until the skin is tender, you now put it in your turbo cooker and you are good to go (but don't forget to cool and air dry first for a bit; some people even prefer freezing it first since they say it makes it crispier) No more need for cooking oil or deep-frying. Just the turbo cooker and you are all set to have a delicious meal of lechon kawali
