Good recipe, but I'd like to suggest making it more authentic by grilling the Hax'n, instead of braising it in a pot. At the Oktoberfest and other large festivals, and in most Gasthäuser in Bayern, you’ll find gegrillte Schweinshax’n on the menu. Grilling the hocks is what makes the skin so crispy (like pork rinds). And you want to make sure they’re fresh, not smoked or cured. I’d also recommend, instead of white wine, which no real Bayer would have with his Hax’n, a good Märzenbier or a Doppelbock. Serve with a Semmelknödel and some Blaukraut, and you’ll have an authentic bairisches Schmankerl. Prost! Brad
