  • 2 ½ tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons dried sage

  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 1 tablespoon onion powder

  • 1 (5 pound) pork leg with skin

  • 1 large onion

  • 6 cloves garlic, halved


  1. Preheat the oven to 430 degrees F (220 degrees C).

  2. Combine olive oil, sage, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt in a small bowl.

  3. Rinse pork leg and pat dry with a paper towel. Rub seasoned olive oil onto pork leg.

  4. Slice onion and separate layers into rings. Place onion rings and garlic halves in the bottom of a roaster. Place pork on top of onions and garlic.

  5. Roast in the preheated oven for 40 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 355 degrees F (180 degrees C) and roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C), about 1 hour 20 minutes more.

  6. Remove from the oven and slice for serving.
