It's a classic main meal at the Munich Oktoberfest. My Bavarian Pork Knuckles is prepared in one pot and can be served family style! Enjoy this Paleo German Recipe!
Dice your leek, celery, carrot and onion. Set aside in a bowl. Heat a stock pot over medium heat. Add fat and let heat for 1 minutes. Add pork knuckles and saute for about 3 minutes. Add in vegetables, salt, peppercorns, cumin and broth/water. Cover and heat on low for 2 1/2 hours or until tender (or put in oven at 275 degrees F for 2 hours). Remove pork from pot and set aside. Remove vegetables by using a slotted spoon and place in a bowl. Add 1 tablespoon butter and increase the heat to medium. Once begins to boil add 1 teaspoon arrowroot flour and whisk into liquid. Let thicken into a gravy. Add pork and vegetables back into the pan. Taste for any additional seasonings.
