Thumbs up Eisbein

Let me tell you how to make a delicious eisbein. For those of you who don't know what eisbein (or haxe) is: its the lower leg of This dish is very common in Germany, usually served with sauerkraut.

The pork leg is best cooked in a clay cooker. First thing is to prepare the clay cooker for use, which means you have to completely submerge both the top and bottom of the clay-pot in cold water for about 15 minutes.

Take the cooker out of the water (no need to dry it off)

Rub the porkleg with salt, pepper and garlic pouder and place in the clay cooker.

Chop an onion and place arround the porkleg

add one glass of red wine (and pour one for yourself if you want ) I like to use red wine from chilli for this.

Now close the clay cooker and place in the (cold) oven.

Turn the oven up to about 350 degrees and cook for about 2.5 hours

After taking the meat out of the clay cooker you can place it under a grill for a little to make it crispy.

Pour whats left in the clay cooker into a pan to make a nice sauce.

Enjoy!

Welcome to DC, Adnan!

The pork legs sounds fantastic. What sides do you usually serve with this dinner?

This is my favorite meat. I've never tried making sultz though.

seven: yes I mean wine from the country Chile. It has a very distinct taste that works very well with this dish.
