An Austrian specialty that is eaten throughout the year. Since it is very filling, a pork knuckle is easily enough for two people. I last cooked it for out annual Oktoberfest garden party. It was a hit!
I live in Austria and I make this regularly. To make it truly traditional though I also add caraway seeds. The beer is also optional, I think. Lovely! - 13 Nov 2016
neverNEVERever would an Austrian or a Bavarian use CUMIN on a pork hock - it's ALWAYS caraway seeds. Looks almost the same, tastes COMPLETELY different! Otherwise quite fail proof recipe... - 16 Apr 2013 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
This is the most easy and awesome dish for the humble pork hock ever! The smell of the cooking process, the flavor with the beer is fantastic! - 02 Apr 2013 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
