SUPER Easy CRISPY German Pork Knuckle SECRET Recipe Revealed!



How to Cook Eisbein

Two Methods:

Eisbein is a classic German recipe that turns a tough cut of pork, the knuckles or hocks, into a tender, flavorful meal. Use fresh or cured pork knuckles or hocks and season them with traditional pickling spices. Arrange the pork over sauerkraut and roast them in a low oven until the meat is tender. You can even make eisbein with a slightly sweet sauerkraut in the slow cooker.

Steps

Making Traditional Eisbein with Sauerkraut

  1. Preheat the oven and wash the pork knuckles.Turn the oven on to 400 °F (204 °C). Get out 3 1/3 pounds (1.5 kg) fresh pork knuckle and rinse them off. Use paper towels to pat them dry.
    • Rinsing the pork knuckles will remove some of the excess saltiness from the dish.
  2. Season the pork knuckles and cut the onions.Sprinkle the pork knuckles with salt and pepper and set them aside. Peel 3 small onions and slice them in half.
    • You can use your favorite type of onion.
  3. Arrange the sauerkraut and pork knuckles in a dish.Pour 3 tablespoons (45 ml) of water into a shallow oven-safe dish (such as a 9 x 13 x 2 or 22 x 33 x 5 cm dish). Spread 2 1/8 cups (520 g) of sauerkraut evenly across the bottom of the dish. Place the pork knuckles on the sauerkraut.
    • Since the pork knuckles will release some fat, greasing the pan is optional. To make clean up easier, you could spray the pan with cooking spray before placing the ingredients in the dish.
  4. Add the onion and seasonings to the dish.Place the onion halves and 2 bay leaves in the dish. Sprinkle the pork knuckles and sauerkraut with:
    • 7 juniper berries
    • 1 teaspoon (2 g) coriander
    • 1 teaspoon (2 g) cumin
    • 1 teaspoon (2 g) caraway
    • Salt and pepper to taste
  5. Bake the eisbein for 2 hours.Cover the dish with a lid and put it in the preheated oven. Bake the pork knuckles until the meat becomes completely tender. This should take about 2 hours.
    • If the dish doesn't have a lid, cover the dish tightly with aluminum foil.
  6. Broil the eisbein if you want a crispy skin.If you'd like crispy South African-style eisbein, remove the cooked eisbein from the oven. Turn on your broiler to high and move the oven rack so it's 3 to 4 inches (7 to 10-cm) below the heat source. Put the eisbein on a baking sheet and set the rack under the broiler. Broil and turn the meat occasionally until the skin crisps up and becomes crackly. This should take 20 minutes.
  7. Serve the eisbein.Remove the dish from the oven and transfer the eisbein to a serving plate. Scoop the hot sauerkraut on the side and serve the meal with boiled potatoes, mashed potatoes, or mashed peas.
    • You can store the eisbein in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days. Simply reheat the meat in the oven at a low temperature [no more than 350 °F (177 °C)] until it's hot throughout.

Making Eisbein in the Slow Cooker

  1. Rinse the sauerkraut.Set a fine mesh strainer over your sink. Measure 3 cups (708 g) of sauerkraut into the strainer and run cold water over it. Rinse the sauerkraut and let the excess water drain off. Transfer the drained sauerkraut to a slow cooker that's at least 4-quarts (3.78 liters) in size. To make clean up easier, you can spray the inside of the slow cooker with cooking spray or insert a disposable liner.
    • Rinsing the sauerkraut will prevent the flavor from becoming overpowering as the eisbein cooks.
  2. Cut the apples and the onion.Peel 2 apples and 1 medium white onion. Use a sharp knife to dice the onion into small 1/2 inch (12 mm) pieces. Chop 1 of the apples into 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces. Grate the other apple against the coarse side of a vegetable grater. Put the onion and apples into the slow cooker.
    • You can use your favorite type of apple. Keep in mind that tart apples (such as Granny Smiths or Pink Ladies) work well with the flavors of the eisbein.
    • If you don't want to use fresh onion, you can substitute 2 tablespoons (10 g) of dried onion.
  3. Pour in beef stock and beer.Measure 4 cups (0.9 liter) of beef stock and pour it into the slow cooker. For a rich, hoppy flavor, you can also add 1 cup (240 ml) of amber or dark beer. Stir the mixture in the slow cooker to combine the ingredients.
  4. Add the pork and seasonings.Put 2 cured or fresh pork knucklesor4 ham hocks into the slow cooker. Place 3 bay leaves in the slow cooker and sprinkle 2 teaspoons (4 g) caraway seed and 2 teaspoons (3 g) of juniper berries over the pork.
  5. Cook the eisbein for 8 hours.Put the lid on the slow cooker and turn it on to LOW. Slow cook the pork until it's completely tender. This should take about 8 hours. Serve the eisbein with the sauerkraut, potato dumplings, and mustard.
    • You can store the eisbein in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days. Simply reheat the meat in the oven at a low temperature [no more than 350 °F (177 °C)] until it's hot throughout.
