Baked Crispy Pata

The lesser the oil the better, right? That's why I did not fry this crispy pata, I baked it and it's still  delicious.

1 pork leg ( pata)
1/2 teaspoon crushed black pepper
1 onion ( sliced)
4 cloves garlic ( crushed)
salt to taste
2 tablespoons lemon or calamansi juice
1 cup Sprite

1. In a pot put the pork leg, onion, black pepper, garlic and enough water to cook the pork leg until tender. Once tender, remove and set aside to cool.
2. Prick with a fork then put the sprite, lemon juice and sprinkle some salt then marinate for at least 30 minutes.
3. Preheat the oven at 200 degrees celcius then bake the pork leg for 40 minutes ( 20 minutes each side) or until done.
4. Serve it hot.

    If I like it deep fried, any tip to avoid splatters? Thanks

  2. heat the oil then lower the fire when it is already hot, then put the pork leg and continue to fry by increasing the heat slowly.

  3. Just tried this "baked" recipe and it was a disappointment. Deep fried rules, still.
