The Instacart guide to pork leg tip roasts

About pork leg tip roasts

Pork leg tip roasts, also called leg knuckles and sirloin tips, come from the rear legs of pigs, just below the thighs. People often call pork legs fresh ham, and pork legs make excellent roasts or salted, smoked hams. Pork leg tip roasts come from weight-bearing muscles, so they're leaner than many other parts of the pig. They also have more connective tissue. This makes them flavorful, but they can be tough if they're not cooked correctly. Pork leg tip roasts are also more affordable than many other cuts of pork.

You can buy pork leg tip roasts as part of a whole pork leg with bones or buy a separate pre-cut pork leg tip roast. When pork leg tip roasts are separate, they look short and cylindrical. The shank end is a cut of pork that includes the lower leg, and it's usually covered in a thick layer of fat. Sometimes, stores simply label pork leg as ham or half ham. You can tell if a half ham contains the shank and the pork leg tip by looking for its tapered shape.

FAQs About Pork Leg Tip Roasts

Country ham is popular in the southeastern United States. It's a whole leg, including the pork leg tip roast, that's dry-cured like prosciutto. The meat is dry and salty, but it has a great flavor. People often cook it with green beans, biscuits, and gravy.

You can score or cut pork leg tip roast to encourage even cooking and increase tenderness. Remove any excess fat, and leave a thin layer about a quarter of an inch thick for more flavor. Use a sharp knife that's not serrated to make a series of shallow, even cuts around your pork leg tip roast. You can also add longitudinal cuts to produce a grid pattern. Before roasting, many people add herbs and spices such as garlic and rosemary to the scores or cuts.

Pork cracklings or cracklins are outer pieces of roasted or fried pork that have been scored and had salt rubbed into them. They crack or crunch when you bite into them, and they have a combination of fat and meat. Packaged cracklings are often called pork rinds, and they're a popular snack. Searing the outside of your pork leg tip roast can create cracklings for you to enjoy as a snack later.
