Puerto Rican Roasted Pig “Lechon”

published 9 years ago by Videos from The Culinary Institute of America

For lovers of pork, there is no greater Puerto Rican treat than a trip into the hills for a sampling of lechon, or roast suckling pig. Apa Ramos, owner of Lechonera La Ranchera, in the hills above San Juan at Agua Buena, Guaynabo, shows us the process. Pork here is sold with sides like pigeon peas and rice, morcilla, green bananas in vinaigrette, cassava in a garlicky sauce called mojo, or a good potato salad.
