If you have ever hosted a true Filipino party whether it be a birthday, wedding or a community fiesta (feast) then you would know that a party is never complete without Roast Pig or Roast Suckling Pig.

Oftentimes in these occasions there will be many leftovers of the roast pig mainly around the spine area, ribs and head. This is a great way to economize and reinvent a dish served for yet another day or two.
