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 lately have a little time, I had been searching on the web last week. Trying to get fresh, interesting thoughts, inspiring dishes that I’ve never tasted before, to impress my family with. Hunting for quite some time yet could not find too many interesting things. Right before I thought to give up on it, I came upon this fabulous and easy dessert by chance on Suncakemom. It seemed so yummy on its pic, it required quick actions.

It was not so difficult to imagine the way it’s created, how it tastes and how much my hubby will probably want it. Mind you, it is quite simple to keep happy the guy when it comes to desserts. Anyhow, I got into the blog and then used the step by step instuctions that have been combined with superb graphics of the procedure. It just makes life much simpler. I can suppose it’s a bit of a hassle to shoot pics in the midst of cooking in the kitchen as you usually have gross hands so I pretty appreciate the effort and time she placed in for making this post and recipe conveniently followed.

That being said I’m inspired to present my very own dishes in the same way. Many thanks the thought.

I was fine tuning the main recipe to make it for the taste of my family. Need to tell you it turned out a great success. They enjoyed the flavor, the thickness and loved getting a sweet such as this in the middle of a stressful workweek. They ultimately asked for lots more, more and more. Thus the next time I am not going to make the same mistake. I’m gonna double the quantity to make them delighted.

You can find the original Ham Hock recipe at 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.
