Paksiw is a famous Filipino recipe that I grew up loving and commonly utilized to "recycle" leftover meat usually from Lechon (roast pig), into a delectably flavorful dish. This is widely used around holidays where Lechon is usually in abundance. This is also sometimes used for leftover roast chicken.
