Braised Pork Trotters in Vinegar 猪脚醋

My mum has been super zealous about my blog these days. She's been buying home tons of fresh ingredients from the wet market and have been urging me to learn new recipes from her to post them on the blog. At times, she will even comment on how I can improve the presentation of my dishes so that it will look more appealing to the readers! Today's recipe was of course her idea and was done under strict supervision. After all, she does have a reputation of being a good cook in the family.

Serves 5


2                            whole pork trotters, chopped into smaller pieces
2                            whole old ginger, smashed
1                            whole young ginger, smashed
2 tablespoons        sesame oil
500ml                    sweet dark rice vinegar
2 large                   rock sugar
2 cups                    water
5                            hard boiled eggs (optional)


Heat a huge stock pot of water to boil. Add in the pork trotters and boil for 5 minutes. Drain away the water and rinse the pork trotters with cold running water for about a minute. Strain and set aside.

In another pot, heat up 2 tablespoons of sesame oil on medium high heat. Add in the smashed ginger and fry till fragrant.

Add in the pork trotters and stir them for about 5 minutes.

Pour in the vinegar and water and bring to boil. Lower heat and add in 2 large pieces of rock sugar. Simmer for about 1 hour or until the pork trotters. Add in some peeled hard boiled eggs, if desired.
