Every time I go back home to Trinidad, one of my most favorite things to eat is a Roast Pork Sandwich. I have never been able to master how Trini’s make their roast pork. It does not help that everyone has a different process either.
One of my fondest memory is every Friday buying a roast pork sandwich from the neighborhood bar (rum shop). The lady that owned it only made it on Friday and Saturdays. I believe she fried her pork pieces and smothered it in the best sauce ever!
I was finally able to find a butcher close to my house that I can order a whole hogs leg. It takes a few days to get it but at least I know its fresh and not frozen for months. The marinade for this hog leg is so simple and you probably already have all the ingredients in your pantry. What’s the catch to this delicious roast pork?
It takes time to cook. My hog’s leg was 10 pounds and I cooked it for about 4 hours on the charcoal grill. It is important to get a leg that has skin and fat on it. The fat keeps it juicy and who does not love a crispy skin?
I made a video of this to show you exactly how to do it. Head on over to my YouTube Channel for more recipes like this and be sure to subscribe to get it right away in your in box.
