Nancy J. Patrykus


Flavor to die for!!!!
Served with smashed taters and green beans...You have a meal fit for a King or a Queen....
This is an ole German recipe, known as Schweinshaxe. Or a baked pork hock.
Easy to prepare, with a crispy skin, very tender and flavorful meat that will fall off the bone.
It takes time to cook, but all you have to do is be patient and build up your appitite.
What else can I say????
But enjoy....Nancy...2/11/13
