Lechon is a Filipino pit roasted whole pig usually served at big gatherings and celebrations, and Sinigang is a sour and savoury stew. Both are loved by Filipinos so why not combine them to create something new for your diners? 

With this recipe, you’ll get the smoky, meaty flavour from Lechon working together perfectly with the tangy notes of Sinigang to give you a deliciously sour and savoury stew.
