Lechon Lomi is a version of pancit lomi that makes use of roasted pork which is popularly known in the Philippines as Lechon. Unlike our previous lomi recipe, this one is less complex in terms of ingredients and preparation, but it has same good comforting taste.
Lechon has been the centerpiece of the dining table in most Filipino gatherings and special occasions. From what I recall, lechon is the national food of the Philippines. Seldom will there be a very special occasion without serving either lechong baboy or baka – even lechon manok, at the least.
This Lechon Lomi came about because I had lots of lechon leftovers. I converted most of the leftovers to Lechon Paksiw, but there are still a few pounds sitting in the fridge. I think that the outcome of this recipe is promising. I enjoyed the bowl of Lechon Lomi, but I tried to control my intake since this is has a high fat and cholesterol content. I am saying this to remind you that good food should be enjoyed in moderation.
