Slow roasted pork hocks

Had these great pork hocks from Butcher Dave.. They were starting to get a little ‘sticky’ so better get ate !

Decided to bone them which is a little tricky yet satisfying when done…

So kinda butterflied and the meat slashed , seasoned with the following:

Onion powder, garlic granules, Italian mixed herbs, pomegranate powder, umami rush , and probably some more stuff too..

Anyhoo.. All dusted on and then tied up badly with string.. Had to borrow the string from me ol’ pal Jack.

Swapped some trotters for the string so that’s fair I reckons ..

Now to cook them.. Gone for 130 in the main oven, for SEVEN hours.. Yup 7 (Kenny dalgliesh’s number when he played kickball in the 70’s) ..

Was a wee bit nervous about it .. Yet should not have worried at all.. It was beautiful.. All crackly and inside all softy and porky ..

To serve with? Dunno the real name yet this is Mr Fitz take on French peas, chopped shallots, Roscoff garlic, gem lettuce halved , stock butter and a can of petit pois.. I love this dish.. It’s seriously very good.. I really don’t know why . ?!?!

The pork had a final flourish by flambé with calvados.. Then roughly hacked and snaffled by me and my pal Ben..

Freakin delicious people!! Freakin delicious!!

This was a tremendous supper.. Drunk with a very nice bottle of Gavi.. A great meal.. Just great..

And dessert? Frozen grapes, more calvados, and good company .. Frozen grapes just work , again don’t know why .. Try them . Make sure they are seedless!!

  1. Besides the obvious searches you can conduct some more in-depth searches to reveal better results, for instance “licensed plumbers” will
    give you some decent results instead of just a two word search.
    Because such a license often requires a plumbing exam, it is important for entrepreneurial plumbers to start getting as much
    education and experience as possible to get ready for potential local
    license requirements. Emergency projects – If an entire pipe bursts and your home is flooding, a plumber can tend to that.
