Oven-roasted crispy pork belly, or better known as Lechon Kawali in my home country, is one of the most popular Filipino dishes that we have. This is the #1 Filipino dish that my husband really enjoys. He had it when we visited a Filipino restaurant near Charlotte, North Carolina before and this was the dish that he ordered many times whenever we went out to dinner on our recent summer vacation to my hometown .
Lechon Kawali is usually cooked deep fried. After hubby’s health scare, I’m trying to prepare food as healthy as I can. So instead of deep frying the pork belly meat, I decided to roast it in the oven.
