Crispy Pig Ears

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs of pig ears, all hair removed (any excess hair, if any may be removed by adding ears to boiling water for several minutes. The hair may ┬áthen be easily scraped off with a knife.)
  • 2 large onions, cut into quarters
  • 1 large green bell pepper chopped
  • 2 ribs of celery chopped
  • 1 large carrot, cut into chunks
  • 1 head of garlic, crushed
  • 2 cups of chicken stock (extra if needed)
  • Canola oil for deep frying
  • kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper

This is a dish that many of us have never experienced. But we assure that once you try it you won’t be able to get enough.

Method:

  • In a large baking pan add the onions, carrots, celery, garlic and bell pepper.
  • Add the chicken stock.
  • Add the pig ears on top of vegetables.
  • Braise in a 275 degree oven for 3 hours. Add more liquid if necessary.
  • After 3 hours remove pig ears and cut into strips.
  • Using a deep fryer or a large sauce pan add 4 to 5 inches of canola oil and fry the pig ear strips at 360 degrees until golden and crispy. About 7 minutes.
  • Remove pig ears from oil and drain.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
