However if your leftover lechon baboy comes with a leftover sauce that was made together with the lechon itself then I would advise to adjust the amount of vinegar and sugar. You might also need to correct the saltiness. Here is the simple recipe of my paksiw na lechon, enjoy.


1/2 kilo leftover lechon
1 cup lechon sauce
1/2 head garlic, crushed
1/4 cup vinegar
1/2 -1 tbsp. sugar
2 to 3 tbsp. soy sauce
2-3 pcs. bay leaf
1/2 tsp. peppercorns
