Chinese Roast Pork is a pork roast that is seasoned mainly with Chinese seasonings along with some natural ones. It is that special dish we usually save for special occasions or big dinner events.


In my family this is usually done a few Sundays for dinner and definitely at our annual Christmas dinner. It is a treat to look forward to this dish since it is not prepared often.

A pork leg is seasoned by making cuts in the pork and stuffing a mixture of Chinese and Jamaican seasonings in the holes as well as rubbing the rest all over and letting it marinate in a large sealed seasoning bowl.


When ready to bake, use a non stick 9 x 13″ baking pan. This blend of seasonings creates a tangy and spicy flavored tender baked pork. When semi-cooled, it is thinly sliced against the grain and served with a gravy made from the drippings. Leave me a reply and tell me what you think.
