Recipe: Slow-Cooked Smoked Pork Ham Shanks
2 Smoked and Cut Pork Ham Shanks
1 onion, diced
3 cloves of garlic, minced
2 carrots, peeled and chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
2 bay leaves
4 cups of chicken or vegetable broth
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C).
In a large oven-safe pot or Dutch oven, heat some oil over medium heat. Add the diced onion, minced garlic, chopped carrots, and celery. Sauté until the vegetables are tender and lightly browned.
Push the vegetables to one side of the pot and add the smoked pork ham shanks. Brown the shanks on all sides to enhance their flavor.
Pour in the chicken or vegetable broth, making sure it covers the shanks. Add the bay leaves and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Cover the pot with a lid and transfer it to the preheated oven.
Allow the pork ham shanks to cook for approximately 2-3 hours, or until the meat is tender and easily falls off the bone. You can check for doneness by inserting a fork into the meat and ensuring it glides in smoothly.
Once cooked, remove the pot from the oven and let the shanks rest for a few minutes before serving.
Serve the slow-cooked smoked pork ham shanks with the vegetables and some of the flavorful broth. You can also pair it with mashed potatoes, roasted vegetables, or your favorite side dish.
For added depth of flavor, you can sear the smoked pork ham shanks in a hot skillet before transferring them to the oven.
Feel free to add herbs and spices like thyme, rosemary, or paprika to the dish to further enhance the taste.
If you prefer a thicker sauce, you can remove the cooked shanks from the pot, strain the broth, and reduce it over medium heat until desired thickness is achieved.
Leftover cooked pork ham shanks can be shredded and used in sandwiches, soups, or casseroles for additional meals.
Enjoy the rich, smoky goodness of our Smoked and Cut Pork Ham Shanks in this slow-cooked recipe. The tender meat and flavorful broth will make it a family favorite.
