- A nice piece of pork shank
- A bottle of good quality red wine.
- Few cloves of garlic
- one onion (whole)
- large piece of ginger (crashed).
- 500ml chicken stock
- Small pinch of cloves
- 2 star anise
Pre-heat the oven to 150'C. Heat a oven-proofed casserole pan. Fry lightly a few cloves of garlic, a chunk of ginger (sliced) and one large onion in some olive oil until soften and lightly brown. Add the pork shank and brown the meat all around. Add 500ml chicken stock and a whole bottle of red wine, few cloves and 2 star anise. Bring the liquid to the boil.
Remove the pan from the stove and place it in the pre-heated oven and let it slowly cook for few hours until the meat is falling off the bone. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with chopped spring onion.
Serves it with mashed potatoes...Yum!
