Oktoberfest is coming up again everyone! Time to take another look at a favourite we all love… Beer Roasted Pork Knuckles! The steps are simple, but it might take a bit of time to make. Fret not however, as patience pays off for you and your mates! We added potatoes and apples to roast with the pork, and pour in a good amount of dark beer for that taste we love.
When paired with sauerkraut, this makes a lovely dish to feast with your beers. Cheers!
