Roast Leg of Pork with Fresh Herbs and Fennel Seeds
This behemoth of a cut makes a spectacular holiday roast that won't break anyone's budget. To make carving easier, be sure to ask the butcher to remove the aitch bone (hip bone) and the main leg bone, leaving the shank bone intact. The pork is best when seasoned and refrigerated overnight before roasting, so plan accordingly.
