Pork For Days

The other day I picked up a piece of pork that we had never tried before. It was a leg of pork with the bone in. The cost was reasonable for the amount of food we were getting. Pretty much like the size of a turkey, so I cooked it in the roasting pan.

I scored the fat and put some spices and rock salt on top. I threw it in the oven on a high heat for 30 minutes, then dropped it down to 350° for a few more hours to cook. Our home smelled lovely as it cooked.

When it was done, I pulled the pork out and let it rest for another 30 minutes. Dinner that night was great! We also had leftovers for days. We did some pork tacos the next night. Tonight, my wife is using the bone to create a bone broth for a ramen dinner and then a pulled pork soup in a day or two.

After this first piece of pork and the tastiness of our meals, I am planning to buy it more often in the future. Making it similar to having a turkey dinner with leftovers. Inexpensive and great for leftovers and future meals.
