RECIPE = 潮州卤元蹄Teochew Braised Hock and Trotters on 5Mar2021

made CNY dinner for RI brothers on 5.3.2021.^^

one of the dishes was 潮州卤元蹄teochew braised hock and trotters.

also made same dish braised trotters for

CNY day 2 family lunch for my brother, sil, niece & hubby, & nephew, and my sis & bil on 13.2.2021.^^

hock and trotters were delicious, perfect gelatinous texture, with very tasty, flavourful braise.

everyone love the dish.

for this I made my own braise (see recipe below), and braise the trotters for 1hr 45mins.

this time I did w/o the aromatics like star anise, cinnamon etc, so just sauces.

very good indeed!
