The simple way

My mum gave me a pack of cleaned pork trotter last month when I visited her on a Sunday. She bought a whole leg from the butcher and immediately chopped, cleaned and blanched it at home.

She gave me some and I cooked it few days later. Thanks mum for cleaning it for me. Hehehe. 

Simple pork trotter recipe that I learnt from my mum. But the flavour is rich and tasty to take. 


Pork trotter, chopped and blanched

Pot of boiling water

5 dried mushrooms, soaked and cut

Dark soy sauce, 4 to 5 tbsp

Light soy sauce, 3 tbsp

Salt to taste

Cooking wine, about 2 tbsp


1. In a pot of boiling water (enough to cover the meat), add in pork trotter. Simmer till the water is boiled. 

2. Add in mushrooms, dark soy sauce and light soy sauce. Simmer for at least an hour to reduce the gravy. 

3. Add in salt and cooking wine to taste. Cook for few minutes before turn off the heat. Serve warm. 


Can substitute wood ear mushrooms for dried shitake mushrooms

I love braised pork trotter but I hardly ever cook it on my own.

I love to eat this with lots of rice. The more vinegar, the merrier!!!

So nice of your mom to clean it for you because the skin on the pork trotter has a lot of hair sometimes when the seller didn't clean it properly. You prefer to braise it in soy sauce rather than cook it in vinegar?

I like both. Haven't cook with vinegar myself.
