Country Roasted Pork



Method (Pre-heat oven 220⁰C)

  1. Place the pork leg onto a work surface and score rind using a Stanley knife or scalpel.
  2. Place the Granny Smith apple quarter and lemon thyme sprigs inside the cavity of the pork leg. Shape leg neatly and place into a large deep baking dish.
  3. Rub the pork rind with the olive oil and sprinkle over the flaked salt.
  4. Roast the pork leg in the pre-heated oven 220⁰C for 25 mins, and then reduce oven temperature to 180⁰C for remainder of the cooking time. Remove roast from oven and rest 20 minutes prior to serving.

Notes: the cavity may also be filled with your favourite stuffing. Weigh after stuffing to work out cooking time. Be careful not to overcook pork.
