Ham Hock Recipe

Looking for a delicious unresistably filling meal? Roasted ham hocks may use a bit of time in the heat but our care will be well rewarded at the end.

As I currently have a little time, I was browsing on the web a few days ago. On the lookout for new, fascinating ideas, inspiring recipes that I’ve never tasted before, to amaze my loved ones with. Looking for a long time unfortunately couldn’t come across lots of interesting stuff. Right before I thought to give up on it, I ran across this tempting and easy dessert simply by accident over Suncakemom. The dessert looked so delightful on its photo, that required fast action.

It was not so difficult to imagine the way it is made, its taste and how much my husband will probably enjoy it. Mind you, it is rather easy to keep happy the man when it comes to puddings. Yes, I am a blessed one. Or perhaps he is.Anyhow, I got into the website and followed the step-by-step instuctions that were accompanied by impressive photos of the task. It just makes life faster and easier. I can imagine that it’s a slight effort to take snap shots in the midst of baking in the kitchen as you typically have gross hands therefore i really appreciate the commitment she put in for making this blogpost .

With that in mind I am inspired presenting my very own recipes similarly. Many thanks for the concept.

I was tweaking the initial recipe to make it for the taste of my family. Need to tell you it was an awesome outcome. They enjoyed the flavour, the consistency and loved having a delicacy such as this in the middle of a hectic workweek. They ultimately asked for lots more, many more. Hence the next occasion I’m not going to commit the same mistake. I am going to double the quantity .

Remove the outer layer of the onion, rinse the celery or any additional vegetables.

Get a big enough cooking pot to put in all the ingredients.

Don’t forget the ham hocks.

Fill it up with water so all the ingredients are submerged.

Put it on the cook top and bring it to boil on high heat.

Reduce the heat and cook it until the meat separates from the bones easily for about 60-90 minutes.

Take the cooked ham hocks out and place them onto a baking tray.

Add optional vegetables that will serve as side dish.

Put the tray into a 390F / 200C preheated oven.

When one side gets the desired golden brown color after about 60 minutes flip the ham hocks to their other side and let them roast for another 60 minutes.

Make sure that they have enough oil or fat on them. If not then brush on some juice from the bottom of the tray in about every 30 minutes.
