Cochon De Lait-Style Slow Roasted Pork Leg
It has been a while since I have featured pork as my protein of choice. Time to remedy that. This week, here are two pork recipes that are sure to please.
1 (18-20 pound) pork leg (Boston and Picnic cuts attached) deboned and trussed
1/2 cup kosher salt
1/4 cup paprika
1/4 cup granulated garlic
2 tablespoons cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
2 cups white wine
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup hot sauce
Preheat oven to 400℉. Place pork in a large roasting pan.
In a small bowl, combine salt, paprika, granulated garlic, cayenne, and pepper. Rub into pork on all sides until well coated. Bake 1 hour.
In a medium bowl, combine wine, butter, and hot sauce. Gently pour over pork. Reduce oven temperature to 275℉. Cook until meat thermometer inserted in the thickest portion reads 150℉, about 4 hours.
