In the past, stewed pork knuckles had the bones removed. After the stewed pork knuckles were cooked, they were rolled up, cooled and sliced for consumption. This time I wanted to stew a whole, so I bought a black pork knuckle with thin skin and plenty of meat. I used to use a pressure cooker to stew this kind of big one in a hurry. This time I deliberately simmered it in a new casserole over the weekend. It is said that the simmered vegetables in the casserole are fragrant, and the finished product is really soft and waxy, and the meat tastes good. It's not fatty at all, and the fragrance is all locked. The casserole at home used to be white, but I don’t dare to stew this dark thing. The casserole will be stained and look ugly and appetite. This casserole is black, and the glaze is very delicate, but the lid is very beautiful, don’t worry. Leave a nasty mark!

3. Adding hot water when stewing pork knuckle is to make the meat not tight
4. I fry the sugar color this time in a casserole, because the Heile casserole will not break even if it is boiled and cold quickly, so it is not a problem. Normal casserole cannot be fried like this.
