Roast Pork Leg

Today I would like to share on how I made a roast pork leg with crispy skin Pinoy style. This roasting method is proven, I have done it on several occasions even using whole pork head with great results. Here is the recipe of my version of Roast Pork Leg, Pinoy Lechon Style.

Roast Pork Leg - Lechon sa Oven


Ingredients:

1 medium size roasting pork leg bone in, about 2 to 2 1/2 kilo
Fish sauce or salt

Roasting Pork Leg


Cooking procedure:

Buy a prepared roasting pork leg with skin slits or ask the butcher to cut for you if not available. Rub the roasting pork leg with the fish sauce or salt as per taste, more salt means saltier crispy rind, or skip the rubbing if you are not into salty food. Arrange the roasting pork leg in a glass baking pan with the wider portion sitting at the bottom of the pan, this will expose most of the skin to the heat. Preheat oven for 150ᵒC to 200ᵒC and when ready place the pan in the middle of the oven. Oven roast for 3 to 4 hours with the same oven temperature, using the oil that dripped in the pan baste the skin a couple of times in between if it gets dried out. Reduce heat if the skin get browned rapidly and adjust time accordingly. Now increase the oven temperature to 250ᵒC and continue to roast for 30 to 45 minutes until the skin start to blister and turn crisp but not burned. To test use a long metal ladle then tap the skin a couple of times when a solid hollow tad sound is heard it indicates the skin is now crisp. When done remove from oven and wrap with aluminium foil, set aside to rest for about 10 to 15 minutes. Serve with your favourite lechon sauce.
