Pritchon (Oven Roasted Pork Knuckles)

These oven-roasted pork knuckles are one of my main dishes during my recent birthday celebration. Since the traditional Filipino lechon isn't available my husband still insisted to have at least a portion of pork to be roasted.

It is funny how my cousin came-up with the name "Pritchon" to this recipe. He said, since it was not cooked the same way as in the Philippines and because the taste and texture was like a blend of Fried (prito) and lechon, "Pritchon" would be appropriate. Well, I guess he really made his point obvious. Indeed it was a hit from that night's main dish and as the pulutan for beer drinking segment.

  • 2 Clean Pork Knuckles
  • salt
  • pepper
  • soy sauce
  • water

  1. Let the knuckles boil in water with salt and pepper for about 40 minutes or 'til tender.
  2. Once cooked rub it with soy sauce and salt. Let it marinade for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven.
  4. Place the pork knuckles to the oven and set it in 200 deg. cel. for 40 minutes or until it is golden brown.
