Boneless Lechon Belly Recipe for Christmas

Boneless lechon belly recipe

If it’s a Pinoy party, the lechon (whole roasted pig) is always the star or the centerpiece. But in recent years, we have seen the rise in the popularity of the boneless lechon belly. And for good reason.

boneless lechon belly recipe
Make your own boneless lechon belly at home. It’s so easy to make.

The boneless lechon belly has so many advantages.

  • It is just the right size. If you have a small family, you don’t need to order a whole pig, just the belly roll and you still get the pork lechon goodness that we love. Plus, it looks good in the middle of the table.
  • No bones. As the name suggests, it’s boneless so you get to eat everything (except the stuffing).
  • It comes in two flavors — the original and the spicy.
  • It is cheaper, too, than buying a whole lechon.

Make it At Home

But do you know that it’s actually easy to make boneless lechon belly at home? Since it is not a whole pig, you can easily make it in the convenience of your own kitchen using even just your small oven. Plus, the ingredients are just simple. It’s just time consuming, though, so you got to allot four hours of cooking time before your meal. So again, easy but it takes time.

You can make boneless lechon belly at home with just a few ingredients.

Boneless Lechon Belly

Boneless lechon belly ingredients

  • 1 kilo whole pork belly
  • 1 Tbsp. rock salt
  • 1 Tbsp. anise palay (anise seeds)
  • 1 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 4 lemongrass leaves
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 5 cloves garlic, crushed
  • Milk for brushing (I used fresh milk)
boneless lechon belly recipe
Salt, anise seeds, and black pepper.

Boneless Lechon belly procedure

  • 1. Wash the pork with water and pat dry with a paper towel.
  • 2. With a sharp ice pick, punch holes on the skin. The skin can be pretty tough so you have to apply force. This will allow the skin to “pop” and give it the chicharon feels when cooked.
  • 3. Rub the rock salt on the skin and on the meat part. You may add a bit of salt than what I suggested but since we control our salt intake, 1 Tbsp is enough for 1 kilo.
Boneless lechon belly recipe
I prefer that the anise seeds and the black pepper are only inside the meaty part and not on the skin of the boneless lechon belly.
  • 4. Mix the anise palay and black pepper. Rub it  well on the inside of the pork. Roll it over and set aside. Let the pork sit for at least 30 minutes so the flavors and aroma of the spices will be absorbed.
  • 5. Heat the oven to 180°C.
  • 6. Open up the pork again and arrange the folded lemongrass leaves, onion slices, and garlic cloves on the meat part.
boneless lechon belly recipe
Stuff the lemon grass, sliced onions, and pounded garlic inside the meaty part.
  • 7. Roll the pork again and tie securely with a string. Make sure that you tie it very tightly because cooking the pork will shrink its size and make it loose in the tie. You may need an assistant to do this so that somebody is holding the pork steady while you are tying it.
  • 8. Wrap the pork in foil, close the sides, and pop the whole thing into the preheated oven. Bake for 2 whole hours.

Tie the pork securely with a string and wrap in foil. Make sure you have tightly tied it because the pork will shrink and if you tied it loosely, the boneless lechon belly will lose its shape. I hope you will do a nicer job than me in tying the pork into a roll.
  • 9. Remove the pork from the oven and brush it all around with milk. Return to the oven, uncovered, and bake for another 30-45 minutes, depending on how brown the skin is on all sides. You really have to check.
boneless lechon belly recipe
Brush the skin with milk all around. I just used fresh milk because that’s what’s available at home. This will make the skin crispy.

Rotisserie Oven

If you have a rotisserie oven, the pork will be baked evenly and you get crispy skin all around.However, with the rotisserie, you may need to increase the temperature a little and cook it longer.

In my case, i just turned the pork several times, baking about 15 minutes per side to achieve the crispy skin. I would look into the oven to see if it the skin is already popping on one side before I turn it again.

In Bacolod, you may order boneless lechon belly from Zharns Grill.

Mealtime Centerpiece

Your family will truly enjoy the boneless lechon belly. The meat becomes so tender and flavorful in the inside. And very juicy, too. But the skin is crisp as well as tastes good. Prepare this for Noche Buena or even your Sunday lunches with the whole family. Just start early so that you can eat on time, as it takes too much time to cook.

Just a tip, you may want to serve it with some Mang Tomas lechon sauce. That’s what we did and it perfectly complemented the boneless lechon belly. But even if you don’t have sauce, the meat is already flavorful and aromatic. You might also want the spicy vinegar with soy sauce and chopped garlic dipping sauce, too. Cheers! 😀

Cs by Night: A Taste of France in Bacolod

Cs by Night by L’Fisher Hotel

Cs by Night is by far the most unique concept among Bacolod restaurants. It is relaxation al fresco along the finer street of Bacolod while enjoying your favorite apéritif.

Cs by Night - L'Fisher Hotel - Bacolod restaurants
Cs by Night — the newest concept among Bacolod restaurants to hit town.

Fresh Concept

The opening of Cs by Night is a wonderful new concept at L’Fisher Hotel Bacolod. It brings the level of Bacolod restaurants several notches higher. While it’s pastry shop, Cs Cafe, has been making waves because of its French pastries, cakes, and breads, this new outdoor dining concept is a refreshing new twist.

You cannot find this spread anywhere else by Cs by Night.

You may say that dining al fresco is not entirely a fresh idea among Bacolod restaurants because we sure have a lot non aircon eating joints in the city. But this is different. Totally different. Worlds apart even.

Little France

As its name suggests, Cs by Night only opens at night. They start serving at 6pm, when the sun has already comfortably set in the west. Since the cafe is facing the east, you will not get a glimpse of the sunset here–just the sudden onset of dusk. And it is just perfect for their setting.

That is when they light up the front area of Cs Cafe, including the 7-foot replica of the Eiffel Tower that is prominently displayed in front. Soft instrumental music starts to play. It is the only one among all Bacolod restaurants that has the Eiffel Tower as its centerpiece. So it only means one thing — photo opp!

The facade of Cs by Night.

Yes, Cs by Night is Instagram-worthy. And it is not just the place. The offerings will surely land in a lot of social media posts.

This new Bacolod restaurants concept is the brainchild of Chef Denis Laumône, executive pastry chef of Cs Cafe and L’Fisher Hotel. Since he is a full-blooded Frenchman, he has introduced authentic French tastes to the Ilonggo palate. And because of his roots, we now have Cs by Night–your little France in Bacolod. He is thankful that the management of L’Fisher Hotel is willing to work with him in bringing novel ideas in the city.

The novel idea that is Cs by Night caters to different folks who would like to eat out but not necessarily dine. You could be waiting for your formal dinner and would like wine and some cheeses to open your appetite. Or you don’t want a heavy meal but would like to spend time with friends over good spirits. Or you just want a night cap. Cs by Night is the place for you. You cannot find this service in other Bacolod restaurants.

Cold cuts platter. You can have different kinds on your platter. It is served with French baguette and rich homemade butter.

They are offering several kinds of platter to match your mood or drinks. They have the cold cuts platter, the cheeses shareable platter, combo platter, and many more. Chef Denis said that you can choose the items that you want included in the platter at Cs by Night.

Al Fresco or Aircon

So Cs by Night concept is al fresco dining with the Eiffel Tower in the background. But since we cannot control the weather and humidity, you may want to stay inside in their air conditioned cafe. That’s still fine. You have that option in this new Bacolod restaurant. While you are there, have some of their best desserts as well as take home their fresh breads.
