To start off, this is not a $1 meal by any means. Simple recipe however. This is a modified version of the original recipe I found. The crackling (skin) was perfect, the internal temperature was spot on for pork, bone pulled right out (great treat for our dog), and the meat was fork tender with a delicious flavor.

Servings: people
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 220 C.
  2. Score the skin of the knuckles.
  3. Slice an onion and place that on the bottom of a cooking dish, place knuckles on top, extra onion, just put that around the knuckles.
  4. Pour a can of beer over the knuckles then generously add garlic powder and ground black pepper to the knuckles, add salt to your liking.
  5. Put in the pre-heated oven for 30 minutes, remove and pour another can of beer over the knuckles. Reduce heat on the oven to 175 C and put the baking dish back in the oven for 2 hours.
  6. After 2 hours of 175 C temp, increase to 220 C, remove the pan and baste the knuckles with the liquid in the pan, put back in for another 30 minutes.
  7. You can either carve these or leave whole, in Germany, I guess it is tradition that one knuckle is one serving to a person and plated like that.
  8. Sides would be mashed potatoes, potato salad, buttered egg noodles, or sauerkraut, and as green vegetable.
Recipe Notes

I found these in Makro, frozen. Each is 800 grams and cost is 200 baht each. If serving one knuckle for 2 people (easily done), the cost would be about $2.95 per person. A bit more expensive than other meals listed here but is a great treat for yourself.

Adapted from an internet recipe.

  1. When my wife and I moved to our current location, first order of business was getting a proper kitchen built, once I had the counters, net order of business was to order some kitchen items, a counter top oven was a priority. And one of the first items cooked in the oven? These pork knuckles 🙂 So delicious!
