Bagnet Recipe

(Ilocano Chicharon Baboy)


Bagnet is the Ilocano version of Lechon Kawali, also known as Filipino-Ilocano Chicharon Baboy. It is a deep fried pork's meat, usually from large chunks of pork leimpo, belly or pork sides. The pork is first boiled and then deep fried in hot cooking oil. When cooking this sinful yummy dish, be very careful enough not to get burned as there will be a lot of hot oil splashing.
