German Pork Knuckle (Schweinshaxe)

Pork Knuckle – is as Bavarian as Oktoberfest, lederhosen and BMW.

Called Schweinshaxen, these mighty hunks of roasted pork hock are a culinary fixture in the Bavarian region.

The Pork Knuckle is the end of the pig's leg, just above the ankle and below the meaty ham portion.

Served in a puddle of dark and malty beer gravy, Pork Knuckle is loved by Germans for its juicy, lip-smackingly rich meat on the bone, all wrapped in a sheath of golden crackling that shatters under a knife.

Don’t let appearances fool you! One taste of a Pork Knuckle is all it takes to fall head over heels for this German classic.

It is said Pork Knuckles have long been a peasant cultural favorite in Germany. This explains our family affection for the selection. Between all of our German (and some English) ancestors, who were all farmers/peasants through history, it was probably a long time family favorite.

That tradition may soon be coming to Nebraska.
