Slow Braised Pork Leg with Citrus and Fajita Seasoning


Last month, my meat CSA sent me home with a pasture-raised boneless pork leg roast. WTF was I supposed to do with it? Undeterred, I scoured the internet and my voluminous cookbook collection and settled on a recipe in Molly Steven’s All About Braising. Remember? She’s the original creator of the World’s Best Braised Cabbage....

What you will need

3 pound boneless pork leg, tied

Kosher salt

Freshly ground pepper

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1 tablespoon fajita and taco seasoning

1/3 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (from 1 medium orange)

¼ cup freshly squeezed Meyer lemon juice (from 1 medium lemon)

3 cloves of garlic, minced

2 bay leaves

¼ cup water
