Pork Shoulder w/Crispy Crackling

If you like pork, like me, you know you must have a piece of that skin, and you want it to be very crispy. And have you wonder how to get that delicious crispy skin? It`s a little labor intensive, but if you follow these steps, you’ll get the desire crispness on that cut of meat.



Ingredients: fresh garlic & ginger. Power oregano,ginger, salt, pepper, onion, comino and sugar.



Make lines at top, and poke with a knife all the way through on the other side, and with your finger make then a little bit larger, so you can insert pieces of fresh garlic and ginger.


Rub the leg with the mix of spices, inserting the rub in the top cuts and in the other side holes.


Place the cut of meat in an oven bag, or wrap the leg with plastic film, and put in the cooler for 2 days.


Remove from the plastic wrap, let it rest for 1/2 hour, at the same time preheat the oven to 400.F cover with aluminum paper and roast for 1 hour. After one hour, remove the aluminum, turn the oven to 350.F and cook for 2 hours.


After one hour…


Fully cooked at 180. degrees


Wait at leas 15 minutes before cutting!!


Done with crispy crackling, Enjoy!!
