Layers of crispy, delicious pork skin with flavorful, slightly sweet fat and tender, juicy meat-what's not to love about lechon?
Lechon-it's so good that people will go to parties they don't want to go just to get some of it. For most of our lives, we've come to associate lechon with special occasions. It's so special that it isn't always served at every special occasion, and, to make it even more frustrating, not all lechon is good lechon. We've all had inedible hard skin and desert-dry pork. There's a good reason why good lechon is so scarce: it's also expensive!
We've got news for you, though. You don't have to wait impatiently for a party invitation or a big chunk of cash just to satiate that hunger for the delicious pork dish. We've got recipes that you can create at home that are versions of lechon that will guarantee two things: one, everybody on your tables gets the "good part," and two, you're not going to go broke making it.
