When you mention pig trotters with vinegar, most people will have that preconceived notion that it’s a confinement dish. Traditionally, mummies eat this dish during confinement to keep the body ‘warm’. Ginger is added because it is believed to have similar properties.
Now, apart from the above mentioned, this is a decadent indulging pot of goodness. Imagine glistening gelatinous skin coupled with the perfect balance of sweetness, sourness and flavours from the black vinegar. That, PLUS the the aroma of ginger… wow! To save time, we made this in a pressure cooker in just 30mins, YES, melt-in-your-mouth tender trotters!
Definitely a dish that MEN would love to devour too! (with rice of course!)
