Oven-roasting has been my favorite way to cook lechon kawali ever since I learned the method by accident years ago. It’s a technique I also use on crispy pork shoulder and always had great results. Before starting, make sure that the whole pork belly slab is prepared properly. Trim excess fat. Take the ribs off, and make sure that the skin is clean. Rub Knorr SavorRich on the meat part of the belly. Spread evenly. I use pork SavorRich for this recipe. There is no need to use salt and ground black pepper. The seasoning alone is all you will need. Rub around a tablespoon SavorRich on the skin part along with soy sauce. Let it marinate for 30 minutes before stuffing with aromatics.
