Ingredients for baked Shank:

  • Pork Leg 10 to 12 pounds
  • 1/4 cup sour orange or lemon
  • 1 cup of beer
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 red and green pepper
  • 1 Head of garlic
  • 4 tbsp oregano
  • 3 Tbsp salt to taste
  • 2 Tbsp Ground Pepper
  • Cilantro branches to taste


Chop and put in the blender glass all the seasonings with the sour orange juice and beer and blend until all is well crushed.
Using a knife we make small holes in the meat on the opposite side of the skin, never cut the skin.

We fill the gaps with the mixture with a kitchen syringe, trying to make the seasoning penetrate through every hole we made and well greasing the side of the skin with our hands in the form of massages, we bathe with the rest of the seasoning.
Leave to marinate for 4 hours or all night preferably.

Put on a baking sheet with the skin up and cover with foil, bring to the oven pre-heated to 375 degrees for 4 hours, then we remove the paper and Leave 1 more hour, or until the meat has a golden color and crispy skin.
