The Best Ever Leg of Pork

Updated: Jun 9, 2023

wash it well first. god knows where all your pork has been to.

i was half drunk when i cooked this piece up. it looked pathetic as raw meat. had to do somethin about it.

i am using 8 kilo whole leg of pork here because i want to, you can use smaller piece of meat but don’t forget to cut down the quantity of ingredients too.

or stay stoned and do whatever.

8 kilo pork leg
10 pieces elephant garlic, peeled, crushed
1 piece ginger, peeled, crushed
15-20 pieces thai bird eye chilies
1 litre light soy sauce
1 litre chinese cooking wine
1 litre maggie seasoning sauce
500 ml dark soy sauce
400 gr fresh bamboo, diced
100 gr chicken seasoning powder
300 gr or so.. seasalt. suit it for yourself
300 ml honey

wash the pork leg. dry it with a towel. 
use 200 gr seasalt to rub on the pork skin. massage it well.
leave for 2 hours.
in a large pot, mix soy sauce, wine, bamboo, 
seasoning powder, seasalt, chilies, ginger and garlic.
add water. check for salanity. it should be mildly salty.
slide in your pork meat and leave to soak for 1 hour.
put the pot on high fire and bring the stock to a boil.
simmer the flame, and leave to cook for about 2 hours.
remove pot from flame, and leave at room temperature to rest. 
should take about 5-6 hours.
before serving, reheat the pork leg inside stock 
by bringing it to a single boil. remove.
this can be served right away 
or you can roast for about 15 min at 190C, preheated oven. 
but bae.. before you roast, rub some honey on the top layer.. 
it gives a nice golden crunch.
