Not quite sure how to Roast a Leg of Pork, we’ve put together this recipe to help you create a succulent Sunday dinner that’s ideal for your Keto diet due to the high-fat meat. The crackling on this delicious Leg of Pork comes out perfectly.

The rule of thumb when roasting a leg of pork is to cook it for 30 minutes per pound. The initial high-temperature cooking is to turn the skin into the perfect crackling which of course is just perfect for keto.

We blended the pork leg’s cooking juices with the onion, mushrooms, garlic, and fennel seed to make a great flavorsome gravy-like sauce. This sauce is included in the nutritional information.

Our roast pork recipe makes 12 serves, allowing approximately 5 ounces per serve.
