Pork (leg) in a clay pot

I must admit that I have neglected a little bit me beloved blog-home, but fortunately nothing bad has happened, it is just that my free time is significantly reduced. However, I always try to cook as often as possible and to visit all the blogs I love, but I have not the time to posts new recipes and comment on everything I like as often as I want to. Hope to fully recover soon!
Now, to the cooking part. This dish I think is one of the most delicious, impressive, aromatictender  meals EVER!! And the best thing about it, is that it's very very easy, as all the work is done by the oven, so the chef can just have a great morning while waiting!!

1 pork leg with the bone
2-3 cloves of garlic
black pepper
red pepper
olive oil
optional: lemon
How To Make
Put the pork overnight in a bowl and pread with some olive oil and spices. Ideallyat some point turn the leg upside down.
The next day, first of all turn on the oven to 150 degrees Celsius. Cut the potatoes into large chunks and put the leg in the clay pot. Cut a clove of garlic into thin slices and fix them with a knife in various places of it. Pour in this holes the remaining juice of th bowl. Spread the potatoes around it, sprinkle them with spices and a little more olive oil throughout the pot (and optional lemon).
Put the clay pot in the oven and forget about it for 3 hours. After these 3 hours we check periodically the pork. A total of 3.5-4 hours is needed and its ready, when the meat falls off easily from the bone and it is soft and easily cut with just a fork. Shortly before the end, I like to fill the holes of the pork with the juice from the pot, this way it becomes even more delicious!
