On special occasions at home, these crispy golden brown liempo are always a staple. Aside from being visually appetizing and delicious, it is very easy to prepare - that is if you have the right equipment. Our ever reliable turbo oven (maybe over 20 years?) has been giving us these delicious crispy slabs of liempo ever since I can remember.
The basic recipe calls for slabs of liempo to be boiled in a concoction of peppercorn, garlic, bay leaves and other spices - just like making crispy pata. When it becomes tender, set it aside for a while to drain the excess water or sort of pat-dry when you need to cook it immediately.
Arrange in the turbo oven and cooked around 30 minutes (or so) on each side until you get the perfect browning and crunch you prefer. Each side means the 4 sides (up,down,left and right - lol) with the fatty portion/skin side last before serving as it serves as the "cherry on top". The crunchier the better!
