A boneless fresh leg of pork is a welcome break from usual holiday fare. A simple rub of dried rosemary, sage and other herbs lends flavor and a touch of elegance to this easy roast. Serve with Corn Bread, Sausage and Apple Stuffing, Kale with Garlic and Bacon, and a flourless chocolate cake for dessert.
- Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Brush surface of pork with oil. In a small bowl, combine paprika, sage, rosemary, garlic, pepper and salt. Rub herb mixture over surface of pork. Place on rack in a shallow roasting pan. Roast for 1 hour (about 15 minutes per pound) or until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 145 degrees F. Remove roast from oven; let rest about 10 minutes.
