German Style Pork Hock Recipe

  1. Put ingredients (vegetables, salt, peppercorns, and pork hock) in pot and add water to cover. Bring to boil, then simmer until meat is just tender - about 2 hours. Do not overcook.
  2. When tender, drain, reserving the vegetables and cooking liquid.
  3. Preheat oven to 425° F.
  4. Place drained vegetables and a small amount of the cooking liquid in a baking dish and top with the pork hock. (Remaining cooking liquid can be saved for later use or discarded)
  5. Bake about 30 minutes, occasionally basting meat with cooking liquid, until golden.
