Guys, I apologize. I know it’s Lent season and the last recipe you’re probably searching for right now is a sinful slab of crispy pork shoulder. But just look at this beauty!

Temptingly golden and crisp, I just can NOT wait to share!

I have many favorites (ginataang talong, pretty please!) but if I have to choose one I am extremely proud of from the almost 500 recipes we have on Kawaling Pinoy, lechon sa hurno will be the runaway winner. With crackling-crisp skin and super juicy meat, it’s hog heaven in every morsel!

I actually discovered the recipe, or should I say the method, to making lechon in the oven quite by accident. My cousin in the Philippines gave me the instructions over the phone and I goofed up on the temperatures. Fortunately, what could have easily been an unfortunate waste of a good piece of pork belly turned into the crispiest, moistest lechon on the planet!

Judging from your positive feedback in the comment thread, you all agree!

As many of you have asked if the method will work on other cuts of pork aside from belly, I decided to experiment on pork shoulder and, my friends, the answer is a resounding YES! Golden and crunchy on the outside and moist and flavorful on the inside, it’s like making your own roast pig at home!

I was so happy with the delicious results, I have crispy pata sa hurno up next on my list.

Bonus points for being able to substitute the leaner pork shoulder for the fattier pork belly but for the best lechon experience, I highly recommend a pork cut with a thick cap of fat and skin.

This crispy pork shoulder is very easy to make and requires almost no work. The downside is, the pork needs to cook in the oven for more or less 7 hours after sitting out in the fridge overnight to dry out.

I suggest using the largest piece of pork shoulder you can get to make it worth the time. The good thing is, the skin stays nice and crisp longer so leftovers will be very much welcomed. 🙂
