Recipe by KERYNE
"A lot of ethnic recipes use pig tails. They are great as a meat dish with turnip greens, black-eyed peas, or boiled cabbage. My recipe cooks the tails, twice and the result is a crispy crackling covering the tail, that you can eat or save for crackling in cornbread. The crushed red pepper can be used liberally for a spicy taste. Be sure to buy pig tails that have a lot of meat around the upper part."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

pig tails, rinsed
onion, coarsely chopped
red pepper flakes, or to taste
Thank you, I always cook pig tails. Only after the boiling point, let cool and remove all bones. I add a package of baby lima's, a large chopped onion,one tsp. garlic and black pepper. Cornbread goes great. I usually freeze a couple containers and serve as a side for another day.
I wasn't sure what to do with the garlic so I boiled it along with the pig tails. The pig tails came out exactly the way they did in picture, however the meat had no taste. I am not sure how to improve the taste.
Great idea, I'm from the Caribbean and we stop at the boiling part, this is an awesome recipe there should be more recipes like this.
Great Recipe, I served it with turnip Greens and Cornbread. I submitted a pic so look for it to be up sooon
Very good!! High in fat so dont make it a regular habit but they are awesome. I sprinkled a little cajun seasoning on them before i put them in the oven and i couldnt stop eating them although i knew i should!
I've never had pig tails before.I see them in the store and a friend makes Stone Stew and includes them along with some other "stuff". I think I'll have these along with my blackeyes and collards for New Year's Day. Keryne, you're a true Nubian Soul with your recipes. Keep them coming!
I even added EXTRA seasoning but it was still flavorless;despite that it was strangely ok
I've been cooking pig tails, for close to forty years, in a similar fashion; though I usually add a bit more seasoning, and as soon as they are fork tender, transfer them to a roasting pan with my favorite bbq sauce. I then let them cook for an additional hour, in the oven, to get completely tender, with a nice bbq glaze. I also usually add some fresh ham hocks to the mix, to be served up with my favorite soulfood sides: cole slaw, mac and cheese, collard greens and skillet cornbread. If you really want a treat, and can find them, try using smoked pig tails to season a pot of blackeyed peas, or pinto beans.
