Filipino Roasted Pork Bellychon Recipe​ By Chef Leah Cohen

Looking for a great tasting, high-quality affordable meal for the holidays? Chef Leah Cohen of New York City restaurant Pig & Khao has teamed up with us to give you just that.

Here’s what Leah has to say about this recipe:

“I shopped with FreshDirect to recreate a holiday staple—Roasted Pork Bellychon—for under $50. In Filipino homes, like the one I grew up in, it isn’t a party unless there is lechon. This version I made here is a play on a whole roasted pig, which is a Filipino party staple.

All of the beautiful fresh ingredients (including hard to find pork belly) were delivered straight to my door, giving me more time to spend with my boys after work and before I get dinner ready.

In addition to skipping the grocery lines, I also didn’t have to worry about the quality of the ingredients: FreshDirect’s Nature’s Promise brand is made from organic and all natural items. I was able to secure quite a few of their pantry staples for this hearty recipe.”
