Stew Of Split Pork Hock’s, Green Peas & Potatoes

Last  night’s late dinner was one of these “hate it or love it” dishes.
Obviously, I love my specialty cut’s and offal, realising that not everybody shares this love. On the other hand, For the folks who do love this stuff, there is never enough of it to find, neither in the supermarket, nor in the majority of restaurants. ( Sadly, most cooks these days lack the knowledge, experience and passion to prepare these dishes). So, for the benefit of my fellow offal and specialty cut’s lover’s, here is one of my more simple but, nevertheless, very satisfying concoctions.

Bon Appetit !   Life is Good !

  1. You have created a perfect meal! I might add a piece of homemade bread to get every drop of the delicious split peas out of the bowl. 😉

  2. Hans, This took me back to my childhood years. My grandmother made it very similar to your reciepe. The ham hocks are delightful, very full of flavor and very rich! After reviewing your blog, I believe I’ve found a new mentor. I’ve beena Chef for the past 32 years, a CIA graduateand ALWAYS dedicated to bring the “BEST” food to my family and clients.

    Thankyou, so much!!!
