what you need
  • 1 (5-6 pound) pork leg, "fresh ham"
  • 2 large clove garlic
  • 2 tsp. pepper
  • 4 Tbsp. (60 ml) salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • 3 Tbsp. (40 ml) olive oil
make it
1-2 days before cooking, slice off any excess fat. Wash pork well. Dry. With small knife make deep cuts around the meat. Mix in bowl; all ingredients (may adjust to taste or size of pork) except oil. Grind with mortar and pestle or use back of spoon if you don't have one.

With clean finger, stuff holes in roast with spices. When done pour oil into leftover spices and rub over roast. Put in roasting pan and cover with foil. Let roast sit in refrigerator for 1-2 days. Don't worry it won't spoil, the spices keep it fresh.

On day that you will be cooking the roast remove from fridge and turn fatty side up. Cook 35 minutes per lb. at 350°. Make sure it is well cooked. Juices should be clear. Let sit a few minutes and slice.
