    About this recipe: This is my favourite roast pork recipe. I serve it with roasties, homemade chunky apple sauce and broad beans.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 12 

    • 1 (3kg) pork leg roasting joint, trimmed
    • 3 cloves garlic, sliced
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 3 bay leaves
    • 100ml (4 fl oz) cider vinegar
    • 1 teaspoon dried thyme

    Method
    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:3hr  ›  Ready in:3hr20min 

    1. Preheat oven to 160 C / Gas mark 3.
    2. With a small knife, pierce top of roast. Force garlic slices into the slits. Sprinkle the roast with salt and pepper. Place bay leaves in the bottom of the roasting tin, and set roast on top of bay leaves, fat side up. Mix vinegar and thyme in a small bowl, and pour over the top of the roast.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven 3 hours, or until an internal temperature of 70 C is reached. Baste the roast frequently while it is cooking. Let it rest for 15 minutes covered with aluminium foil before slicing.
