Pork Kilawin

Share to Your Friends!

Pork Kilawin is a dish that you can make with grilled pork belly. Unlike the similar kilawin seafood dishes, meat such as pork needs to be cooked first before being prepared this way because it does not get cooked completely when soaked in vinegar.It is usually considered a mainstay in drinking parties partnered with beer, gin or just about any liquor. However, since we are Filipinos, there are also people who eat it with rice. Pork Kilawin reminds me of my beach time in the Philippines. It is one of the dishes we prepare when we have a day out to the beach with friends or family.
