Pork Trotters x 2

£3.15

Pork trotters are a remarkable cut. They are often overlooked, which they shouldn’t be, as with a bit of care and attention they can be something special. It’s very important to cook trotters for a long time; slow and steady wins the race with these cuts. Slow cooking will break down the gelatine, which releases the meat from the bone.

Once the meat begins to fall away, the pork trotters are ready to serve. Make sure that you save the cooking liquid, as it is a delicious pork stock to add to your soups and stews. We love stuffing braised pork trotters and roasting them in the oven. Serve with mashed potato, vichy carrots and steamed green vegetables.

 

It is a good idea to introduce different cuts into your repertoire, as it more sustainable for the environment to make the most of each animal. Offal is also delicious and very good value for money.

 

The best meat deserves the best preparation. That’s why we work with master butchers who have prepared these pork trotters to the very highest standard. Our butchers have prepared the trotters expertly so they are ready to cook. We go to this effort to maintain the quality you have come to expect from The Black Farmer.

 

Our free range pigs feed on grass and lead happy lives in the great British countryside. We work with trusted, local farms to make sure we have the best breeds for the season. At every stage, we support traditional farming methods and encourage a sustainable and ethical approach to meat eating. The practices our trusted suppliers use reduce animal stress and lower food miles.

 

We vacuum pack our pork trotters to keep the meat fresh for longer. They are also suitable for home freezing.

This pack contains approximately 2 pieces.
