Pork Hock

I'm cooking this for the first time. Boiled in water, beer and mineral salt for 15 mins. Let it rest, cut squares into skin and rubbed in ground coriander seeds, poured the stock over it and added some thyme, oregano and garlic. Roasting it in a clay pot for 1 hour on 220 degrees and 30 mins on 180. Hope it works. After 45mins I'm going to add some potatoes in their jackets and then make an apple sauce.

Wrong forum. I think you're looking for this: http://www.marthastewart.com/community maybe?

Maybe Somtam needs a recipe section here!

Tasted good. I think next time though I will put whole apples into the pot and roast them with the meat.

Man I got to try that. I really don't like Coriander, so if I omit it, you think that will hurt the flavor a lot?

not really. apples, salt and pepper is all you really need. you could try cumin if you like that. i also added some honey to mine near the end. i did see a honey and beer recipe on the net but i sort of made up my own recipe. i did find I had to add a fair bit of salt. i had to add some extra at the end because it needed more. the water/beer soaks up a lot of it.

re cooking time i added an extra 15 mins at 180. could even do an extra 20-30mins and it would be really soft.

MM, Coriander seeds don't take anything like fresh coriander (which I happen to love!). FYI...
