Recipe Post: Steamed Pork Trotters

In my previous post about my recent trip to Xiang Tan, I mentioned that the pork trotters were AMAZING. Thus, it is only proper that I share the recipe


Steamed Pork Trotters


  •  1 -2 pork trotters, preferably the front ones, diced
  • Unground spices (Chinese Cinnamon, Bay leaves, star Anise cloves)
  • Ginger, cut into wide, thin slices
  • salt, to taste
  • soysauce


  1.  Heat a wok on medium and toss the trotters in with the ginger, salt and spices. Cook until the fat renders and the trotter is almost cooked (Around 10 minutes).
  2. Place into a pressure cooker and steam for approximately 20 min.
  3. Remove from steamer and douse with soy sauce. Serve and enjoy!


Yep, only three steps and less than 40 minutes, including prep, until deliciousness.
