Pig trotters - recipe from Mallorca

09 FEB 2018


8 pork trotters sliced in several pieces

1 onion

1 tomato

1/2 red pepper

3 carrots

3 peeled garlic

2 laurel leaves

Aromatic herbs (fennel, marjoram, etc.)

1/2 hot pepper

Toasted almonds

Fried bread


Oil, salt and pepper



The first thing we will do is wash the pig's trotters and strain. Place ingredients (onion, tomato, pepper, carrot, peeled garlic, herbs, chilli, laurel, a drizzle of oil, salt and pepper) in a large pot covered with water and cook three hours. If you have a pressure cooker, cook it about an hour.

Put the pig's trotters in a clay pot with a part of the cooking broth. Grind all the vegetables (along with some broth) and add the sauce to the meat, cooking everything together for a few minutes. Add the almonds and fried into the pan. We can fried potato chip to finish the dish.
