Marinated Pigs Ears

Yes you read right-PIG's EARS!

Deliciously chewy I have a love for the porcine earlobes such that could be describe as bearing similarities to a terrier-its a fervent and eager love of those floppy and wonderfully delicious ears.


I prefer to cook mine in an aromatic broth first for about 30mins

I used :

big knob of ginger

1 star anise

1 cassia quill

3 cloves

1/2 t Sichuan peppercorns

1/2 t fennel seeds

1/2 C Shaoxing wine

Water to just about cover the ears


slice it finely and marinate them with :

clove of crushed garlic

2 T soy

1 T black vinegar

1t sugar

1t salt

pinch black pepper

1 T toasted seasme seeds

2 T chilli oil-house made naturally

1 spring onion , finley chopped

1/4 t ground Sichuan Peppercorn

Mix really well and marinate for at least 2 hours
