And one of the things black southerners in particular love to cook for their New Year’s dinner are pig’s feet, black eyed peas are another New Year’s dinner tradition in the U.S. Now there are an abundance of people who don’t eat pork for either religious or health reasons, but for those of us who do…. we know how delicious and pleasurable some good ole pig’s feet can be especially if cooked right. I’m going to share with you a very simple and easy way to make some of the juiciest, most flavorful, tender pig’s feet that you are going to ever taste in your life. These boys are FALLING OFF THE BONE TENDER, and the ingredients we use gives them so much FLAVOR.  I’m talking about, bone sucking, toe curling, wanna SMACK YO MAMA flavor…..Yea sounds just like a FOODGASM. These pig’s feet are to die for… they’re that delicious. They’ll leave you smacking like a cow, and humming like them old southern church mother’s do during prayer. Hahahahaha  That’s what soul food is all about… it TOUCHES and penetrates your soul….Giving you an outer body experience. So give it a shot…   YOU ARE GOING TO FALL IN LOVE WITH THIS RECIPE!!!!!

Instructions

1. Ok let’s get started on our pig’s feet….. first thing you’re going to do is sit your pig’s feet in a big bowl or pot of cool water. Add about 1 tbs of salt to the pot of water and rinse the feet off with the salt water solution. After rinsing them off just let them soak in the salt water solution for about 30 minutes. If they are frozen, let them sit until they thaw out.

2. While your feet are soaking, chop up your onions, peppers, and celery. They don’t have to be chopped extremely small because they are going to disintegrate as the feets are simmering.

3. Next, we’re going to combine our stock and cornstarch. So pour your stock into a big bowl and stir in your cornstarch until it dissolves. This is what they call a slurry, which is going to turn into a light gravy while the feets are cooking. I do this just so that the feet liquor isn’t so loose.

4. Once your pig’s feet are fully defrost, what you’re going to do is move over to the stove now. We gone get ready to cook these bad boys. So get a big pot, a pot big enough to fit the pig feet in. Place the pot over medium heat.

5. Add your pigs feet, chopped vegetables, minced garlic, worcestershire sauce, vinegar, butter, seasonings, slurry, and water. As you see in the video tutorial I combined all my seasonings then added them at once. Make sure that you add every seasoning except for the crushed red peppers. You add that to the pig’s feet once they’re done along with the hot sauce.

6. Cover your pig’s feet with a lid, leaving a crack on the sides so that the liquid doesn’t overflow.

7. Cook your pig’s feet for 3-1/2 to 4 hours. They will be pretty tender by 3-1/2 hours but if you want them falling completely off the bones, cook them for 4 hours.

8. Once your feets are tender, add your crushed red peppers, hot sauce, and enjoy…..
