    Lusog Notes
    This tasty dish contains vitamin B1 which helps release energy from carbohydrates and niacin that promotes normal digestion and healthy skin.
    Chef`s Tip
    Cook the dish over low heat to slowly tenderize the pork. Pork liempo will not dry out during the long cooking because it has enough fat to keep it moist.
