Leftover Roast Pig in Sweet Pickle and Pineapple Sauce

Breaded Leftover Pork in Pineapple Pickle SauceOur famous "lechon" (roast pig) can be cooked in a variety of ways. Whenever there's leftovers from previous parties, we store them in the freezer.

Instead of tomato sauce, I substituted tomato ketchup to add a sweet and sour blend to the dish.
