Mami is a noodle soup. The most common and popular is chicken. Chicken Mami is considered as a comfort food. It's one of mine, too, especially when I feel down (literally or figuratively).
And as I am still NOT feeling up to par, I am craving some major comfort!
I already had chicken sopas the other day, so while I want mami this time,
I'd rather have a different flavor other than chicken...
I had made lechon lomi
before but I definitely did not want to do that much work! I wanted a
simple noodle soup with lechon as its flavoring meat. So I followed the
cooking procedure for chicken mami, except that I substituted lechon
meat for the chicken meat!
And here's my comforting bowl of lechon lomi...
Here's how I made it -
Boil 250 grams of lechon - parts with little meat and a lot of bones -
in about 6 cups of water, with an onion. Simmer at least 45 minutes.
Strain the broth.
2. Meanwhile, chop up about 300 to
400 grams of lechon meat; set aside. Slice an onion, mince 3 to 4
cloves of garlic, parboil some pechay leaves; set aside.
3. Rinse and boil 500 grams of thin egg noodles; drain and set aside.
4. Saute the onions and garlic. Add the chopped lechon meat and the broth. Season with salt.
Let boil. Meanwhile arrange some noodles in a bowl and add some pechay
leaves on the side. Ladle soup and lechon meat over the noodles and
5. Garnish with spring onions and crushed chicharon, if desired.
