Recipe: Slow-Cooked Free-Range Pork Trotters

Ingredients:

  • 4 free-range pork trotters, cleaned and split
  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Fresh parsley, for garnish

Instructions:

For Preparing Pork Trotters:

  1. Rinse the pork trotters under cold water and pat them dry with paper towels.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large, heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat. Add the trotters and sear them until golden brown on all sides. Remove and set aside.

For Making the Stew:

  1. In the same pot, add chopped onions, minced garlic, carrots, and celery. Sauté until the vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes.
  2. Return the seared pork trotters to the pot. Pour in the white wine, scraping the bottom to deglaze and loosen any flavorful bits.
  3. Add the bay leaves, fresh thyme, and chicken or vegetable broth. Bring the mixture to a simmer.
  4. Cover the pot and let it simmer gently for 2.5 to 3 hours, or until the pork trotters are tender and the meat easily falls off the bone.
  5. Season the stew with salt and black pepper to taste.

Serving:

  1. Carefully remove the pork trotters from the stew and place them on a serving platter.
  2. Ladle the fragrant vegetable broth over the trotters.
  3. Garnish with fresh parsley for a burst of color and freshness.
  4. Serve with crusty bread or creamy mashed potatoes to soak up the savory goodness.
