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 most recently have a little time, I had been browsing on the web last week. In search of fresh, exciting tips, inspirational meals that I’ve never used before, to astonish my family with. Searching for a long time but could not come across lots of interesting stuff. Right before I thought to give up on it, I ran across this yummy and easy treat simply by luck on Suncakemom. The dessert looked so tempting

on its snapshot, that required rapid actions.

It was not so difficult to imagine the way it’s created, its taste and how much my hubby is going to want it. Mind you, it is extremely easy to delight the man in terms of puddings. Anyhow, I went to the website and then followed the step by step instuctions that had been accompanied by great snap shots of the task. It really makes life less difficult. I can imagine that it is a bit of a hassle to shoot photographs in the middle of baking in the kitchen as you usually have gross hands so that i seriously appreciate the time and effort she placed in for making this post .

With that said I am inspired to present my own recipe in a similar fashion. Many thanks for the idea.

I had been tweaking the original recipe to make it for the taste of my family. Need to tell you it was a great outcome. They enjoyed the taste, the structure and enjoyed getting a sweet such as this during a hectic week. They quite simply demanded lots more, more and more. So the next time I am not going to make the same mistake. I am going to twin the volume .

The origanal ham hock recipes recipe is from SunCakeMom

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.
