Colombian-Style Roasted Pork Leg (Pernil Asado)

Colombian-Style Pernil Asado, is pork leg, marinated in a sauce made with beer, onion, garlic, scallions, red bell pepper, achiote and cumin, then slow roasted in the oven for hours. A few minutes at the end of the slow roasting time crisps up the skin and you will have a hard time deciding if you like the tender meat or the crackling skin better!

  • 1 (10 to 12 pounds) bone-in pork leg
  • 8 scallions, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 large white onion, diced
  • 10 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 3 tablespoons of ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoon of white vinegar
  • salt and pepper, to your taste
  • 6 cups of dark beer
  • 1 tablespoons of ground achiote
