How To Bake A Christmas Roast Pork

“Ah want ah piece of pork for meh Christmas!” Learn how to prepare a Trini Christmas Roast Pork in this week’s episode.


5 lb pork leg (with bone)

1 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

2 tablespoon thyme (fresh)

1 sprig of Oregano

2 full stalks of chives

3 leaves chadon beni

3-4 cloves garlic

1 lime or lemon.

1/4 scotch bonnet pepper sliced very thin


Wash the pork with the juice of a lime and pat dry thoroughly with paper towels.

Add in the salt, olive oil, black pepper, thyme, oregano, hot pepper, chadon beni, chives and garlic into a blender and blend. You want to achieve a thick paste.

Take the meat, and carefully stab holes into the meat side, just a few.

Take the marinade/paste, and paste it all over the meat side, not the skin. Work some of the paste into the small stab cuts. Marinate for 1 hour minimum. Use a fairly deep baking pan to marinate in.

Heat the oven to 375, and then put in the meat for 2 hours Make sure the skin side is up, not touching the bottom of the baking tray.

After 2 hours, flip the meat upside down and uncover, and bake again for another hour.

After it comes out, let it cool for 20-30 mins before slicing. Enjoy!
