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.
