Hello my lovelies!
Some of you may know that I was born in Alsace, a French region where food is like a religion!! Our cooking style is very traditional and, from time to time, I like to spice things up!!
I decided to cook my pork hocks, a typical Alsatian meat, with a touch of Asia…
Let’s see the recipe, Chef!
- 2 cooked pork hocks
- 2 nectarines
- 40 g savory soy sauce
- 40 g maple syrup
- 50 g Shaoxing wine
- 2 cm fresh ginger
- 1 star anise
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 3 pepper seeds
- 3 cloves
- 150 g orange juice
Place the pork hocks and the nectarines cut in quarters in a roasting pan.
Place the rest of the ingredients in a sauce pan.
Heat and, once it starts boiling, lower to medium/low heat.
Cook for 20 minutes.
Preheat your oven at 200 C / 390 F degrees.
Pour the sauce on the pork hocks and cook for 45 minutes.
Spread sauce on the pork hocks from time to time during cooking.
