Monday’s Bread Bowl: Spicy Braised Pork Knuckles

A spin on Korean BBQ

Need a dish that’s spicy comfort food? If you like Korean BBQ, then we think you’ll like this spicy braised pork knuckles stew that’s seasoned with Korean BBQ sauce. The long cooking time means that the meat practically falls of the bone, so every bite is full of tender cooked pork. Here’s the recipe:

What you will need:

1 wooden spoon
1 large stock pot with lid
1 yellow onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, diced
2 to 3lbs pork knuckles
1 Cup Korean BBQ sauce from bottle
2 cups water
3 tablespoons cooking oil
1 hot chili pepper, sliced
Pinch of salt

Cooking and Directions:

Heat stock pot at medium-high heat. Add cooking oil, onion, and salt, and garlic. Sauté ingredients until onion turns translucent. Place pork knuckles into stock pot and let them brown for 6 to 10 minutes while occasionally stirring. Pour in water and bring to a boil. Next, lower heat to medium-low and let pork knuckles braise for 1 hour while covered. Remove most of the simmering liquid and rendered fat juices from pot. Then pour in BBQ sauce, hot pepper, and mix well. Return lid and let ingredients braise for another hour to 90 minutes depending on how tender you want the pork to become for serving.
