Zuurkool Met Spek - Sauerkraut and Pork Hocks

READY IN: 3hrs 15mins
Recipe by mollypaul

Hollanders like plain, substantial food and lots of it. Long, slow cooking yields an extraordinarily tender meat. This method also works well for spareribs. From the Michigan Dutch chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947.
