Rolled Leg of Pork is a popular joint for it’s leanness. But be careful as this joint is also the reason why many people perceive Pork as being a dry meat which simply isn’t true. If cooked well you will find our Rolled Legs to be tender, moist and the flavour rich. Of course, our highly skilled butchers score the skin well so you can make excellent crackling.
How to cook Rolled Leg of Pork
Cook from room temperature. Dry the skin thoroughly and rub salt into rind. Roast the Joint in a deep tray and cover with foil. Place in centre of oven and cook at 180°C, Gas Mark 4 for 30 minutes and then 30 minutes for every 500g.
