Vinegar Pig Trotter - Recipe Refinement

Recommended Posts

All - I found this wonderful set of guidelines for making Vinegar Pig trotter - anyone care to clarify the Chinese characters for some of the ingredients (Chinese black sugar, old ginger, etc.) and finalize exact proportions? :) Knowing the pinyin for the recipe name would be nice too. :)

If I am not mistaken, I believe this is a variant of the classic post-partum dish given to new mothers (minus the eggs)?

I called my aunt again today...she's been quite busy.

But anyway,she said that since you're a chef,you can roughly figure out the quantities...

She does not use rock sugar,but rather,chinese black sugar for a stronger flavour. About 250g

And you need loads of old ginger...like about 1/2 kg for every pig's trotter.

She adds quite a bit of sesame oil too.

And you need to heat the sesame oil in a pot,with some cooking oil and fry ginger till browned.

Add in sugar,continue frying till slightly caramelised,then add in about 2 cups for every trotter,of Chin Kiang black vinegar.

Let it reduce a bit,then add trotters and water.

Simmer for about 1 hour till soft, top up water occasionally if need be. You need the vinegar and ginger for that kick, so don't gasp at the quantities...

Hope this helps.

I don't know what Chinese black sugar is. Maybe something is lost in translation?

Old ginger is just the ginger that is getting... old? (Opposite to the young, spouting ginger) When you cut up a piece of ginger, you feel the grain, and you see fibers at the edge, the color of the cross section is a darker shade of yellow instead of bright yellow, that is old ginger. From the outside, feel the skin. Old ginger skin is much rougher, instead of smooth. Color: darker brown instead of pale brown or dark yellow.

You probably would be looking at using some vinegar like this:

this dish is a confinement food for ladies who have given birth, but of course, can be eaten whenever the whim arise :biggrin:

black sugar can be replaced by brown sugar....black sugar as the name suggest, is really black.

Here's the recipe from a book " Confinement Food "

1 pig's trotter - abt 1 kg.

1 kg old ginger, skinned and smashed lightly

4 tbsp sesame oil

800 ml black vinegar

1.5 litres water

300 g - 400 g brown sugar ( adjust sweetness to your liking )

hardboiled eggs - optional

Method ;

Clean and pluck hair of trotters. Cut into big chunks. Blanch trotters, drain.

Heat sesame oil and fry ginger till fragrant.

Dish out ginger and put into a clay pot. Add vinegar, water and brown sugar.

Bring to a boil and simmer for 20 - 30 mins or till ginger is soft.

Add pig's trotter pieces and continue to simmer till meat is tender, about 2 hours.

Add hardboiled eggs half an hour before serving.

Chinese believe black vinegar purifies the blood.

old ginger drives out wind from the body

brown / black sugar checks the dampness in the body.

Notes : original recipe use 2 pig's trotters. 1/2 cup of sesame oil and 600 g sugar.

We have this same recipe in the Philippines, only we call it Pata Tim. And yes, it's of Chinese origin and yes, it also comes with the hardboiled eggs. Great over hot, steamed rice!

In my family we've always used the terms lao jiang (literally: old ginger) and jiang (ginger) interchangeably. In Chinese, it is preferable for nouns to have two characters instead of one; I think this is just a case of that, and so it is just a quirk of the language as opposed to any actual difference in the age of the ginger in question.

It is true generally. Lao [Mandarin], which literally means "old", is used as an adjective before a noun as a meaningless adjective but a space filler.

But in this recipe it does call for older ginger.

Peony, this looks like a great recipe, thank you! :)

Do you know the pinyin (and English transliteration) for Chinese Black Sugar, perchance - it seems to be a most unusual ingredient and I would like to try the recipe with it. Also, did you develop the modified recipe with less sesame oil and more sugar?

Also, I seem to remember that other recipes I've seen for this post-partum stew called for hard-boiled eggs as well, but in-shell (to allow the calcium to leach from the shells into the stew) - is that your experience here as well?

If so, I'd crack the shells lightly all-around to get the marbled effect (similar to tea eggs) on the shelled eggs - seems like a nice visual, as well as adding additional flavour to the egg...

Thanks again, eGullet is truly all-knowing. :D

For ginger, we have a variety grown in the M'sian town of Bentong; it has a neat bite and is fibreless...really delicious in jue geok cho...you can eat it completely.

Make lots! Keep in a clay pot to eat over a few days and savour the flavour which develops as the dish is reheated every day and gets thickened.

sugar is sugar to me, so at times I use white sugar :biggrin:

I'm sorry that can't help you with Chinese language as I can only read n write English :raz:

I used peeled hardboiled eggs.....actually I use less sugar than the original recipe..

to be honest, there is already too much oil, that's the reason I cut down the oil content...I cooked a day before my family eat this so that I can cool n put in the fridge, take out to remove the layer of fat before warming up to eat :biggrin:

not very Chinese of me... :wub:

Black sugar? Frankly, I've never heard it before. Perhaps, it's so dark, they call it black? Here's a picture of gula melaka or coconut palm sugar which I use in Vinegared Pig Trotters. You may use rock sugar, which, although it does not have that extra complexity, it gives a smooth mouth feel.

BTW, Peony, where are you situated? :smile:

About the eggs...although it's visually more interesting cracked, I think the eggs would be more tasty nekkid. :rolleyes:

I am from Singapore.....

I have seen black sugar sold in a Chinese emporium ... It could be some form of very dark,brown sugar. The name in the packet is ' hei tang ' - black sugar .

My mum or those that I know didn't use gula melaka for this pig's trotter with black vinegar stew. The confinement lady for my daughter used brown sugar.

All - MANY thanks to everyone, especially Peony for helping to clarify the proportions and ingredients in this recipe.

I've created my own version of this, closely based on Peony's, that includes a famous Chinese herbal tonic (especially suitable for women, as this *is* a post-partum stew - plus it adds a good flavour as well) and hard-boiled eggs in the shell, as I seem to recall this is also important for new mothers, to enable the calcium from the shells to leach into the stew. Plus, my use of the 'marbled egg' effect is unique, at least as far as I can determine. :)

Enjoy, JH

The Hirshon Ginger, Sugar & Vinegar Pig Trotter Stew

1 pig's trotter - between 2.5 and 2.75 pounds

Between 2.5 and 2.75 pounds old ginger (yes, you read that right), skinned, cut into pieces and smashed lightly (JH note - old ginger is exactly that, the typical stuff you get in the supermarket, do NOT use actual OLD ginger, this is just a Chinese term to differentiate it from 'young' ginger, which is harvested early)

4 tbsp sesame oil (JH note - I like Kadoya)

Slightly more than 3 1/3 cups Chinese black vinegar (JH note - do NOT use Sweetened Black Vinegar in this recipe!)

6 1/3 cups bottled water

Slightly more than 1 1/4 -1 2/3 cups brown sugar (adjust sweetness to your liking) (JH note - if you can find it, use Chinese black sugar, called 'Hei Tang')

hardboiled eggs in shell, to taste

Tang Kuei Gin Syrup - 2 tablespoons - One of the great Chinese tonic herb formulas for women - see http://www.qualitychineseherbs.com/herbal_...ts/dang_gui.htm Tang Kuei Gin syrup may be purchased here: http://www.eastearthtrade.com/catalog.php?...820&product=505 - NOTE: This ingredient is NOT in the classic recipe

Clean and pluck hair of trotters (if there are any). Cut into big chunks. Blanch trotters, drain.

Heat sesame oil and fry ginger till fragrant.

Add ginger and oil and put into a clay pot. Add vinegar, water and brown sugar.

Bring to a boil and simmer for 20 - 30 mins or until ginger is soft.

Add pig's trotter pieces and continue to simmer till meat is tender, about 2 hours.

Add hardboiled eggs and Tang Kuei Gin half an hour before serving - crack the shells all over lightly but completely to enable the marbled effect when peeled (note - this is a JH affectation, and not in the original recipe).

This should be served to the new mother for 1 month - repeat the recipe as needed and add to the leftovers (important - there should always be some leftover added to the new batch of stew) and reheat, as it gets more and more nutritious over the 30 days (as well as delicious).

Chinese believe black vinegar purifies the blood

old ginger drives out wind from the body

brown / black sugar checks the dampness in the body

Eggs and shell add needed calcium to the stew, to aid the mother in nursing

Tang Kuei Gin is a superb herbal tonic, specifically for women

      Sea fish in my local supermarket
       
       
      In the past I've started a few topics focusing on categorised food types I find in China. I’ve done Mushrooms and Fungi in China, Chinese Vegetables Illustrated, Sugar in China, Chinese Herbs and Spices, Chinese Pickles and Preserves, and Chinese Hams.
       
      I’ve enjoyed doing them as I learn a lot and I hope that some people find them useful or just interesting.
       
      One I’ve always resisted doing is Fish in China. Although it’s interesting and I love fish, it just felt too complicated. A lot of the fish I see here, I can’t identify, even if I know the local name. The same species may have different names in different supermarkets or wet markets. And, as everywhere, a lot of fish is simply mislabelled, either out of ignorance or plain fraud.
       
      However, I’ve decided to give it a go.
       
      I read that 60% of fish consumed in China is freshwater fish. I doubt that figure refers to fresh fish though. In most of China only freshwater fish is available. Seawater fish doesn’t travel very far inland. It is becoming more available as infrastructure improves, but it’s still low. Dried seawater fish is used, but only in small quantities as is frozen food in general. I live near enough the sea to get fresh sea fish, but 20 years ago when I lived in Hunan I never saw it. Having been brought up yards from the sea, I sorely missed it.
       
      I’ll start with the freshwater fish. Today, much of this is farmed, but traditionally came from lakes and rivers, as much still does. Most villages in the rural parts have their village fish pond. By far the most popular fish are the various members of the carp family with 草鱼 (cǎo yú) - Ctenopharyngodon idella - grass carp being the most raised and consumed. These (and the other freshwater fish) are normally sold live and every supermarket, market (and often restaurants) has ranks of tanks holding them. You point at the one you want and the server nets it out. In markets, super or not, you can either take it away still wriggling or, if you are squeamish, the server will kill, descale and gut it for you. In restaurants, the staff often display the live fish to the table before cooking it.
       
      These are either steamed with aromatics – garlic, ginger, scallions and coriander leaf / cilantro being common – or braised in a spicy sauce or, less often, a sweet and sour sauce or they are simply fried. It largely depends on the region.
       
      Note that, in China, nearly all fish is served head on and on-the-bone.

      Big Plate Chicken - 大盘鸡 (dà pán jī)
       

       
      This very filling dish of chicken and potato stew is from Xinjiang province in China's far west, although it is said to have been invented by a visitor from Sichuan. In recent years, it has become popular in cities across China, where it is made using a whole chicken which is chopped, with skin and on the bone, into small pieces suitable for easy chopstick handling. If you want to go that way, any Asian market should be able to chop the bird for you. Otherwise you may use boneless chicken thighs instead.

      Ingredients

      Chicken chopped on the bone or Boneless skinless chicken thighs  6

      Light soy sauce

      Dark soy sauce

      Shaoxing wine

      Cornstarch or similar. I use potato starch.

      Vegetable oil (not olive oil)

      Star anise, 4

      Cinnamon, 1 stick

      Bay leaves, 5 or 6

      Fresh ginger, 6 coin sized slices

      Garlic.  5 cloves, roughly chopped

      Sichuan peppercorns,  1 tablespoon

      Whole dried red chillies,   6 -10  (optional). If you can source the Sichuan chiles known as Facing Heaven Chiles, so much the better.

      Potatoes 2 or 3 medium sized. peeled and cut into bite-sized pieces

      Carrot. 1,  thinly sliced

      Dried wheat noodles.  8 oz. Traditionally, these would be a long, flat thick variety. I've use Italian tagliatelle successfully.    

      Red bell pepper. 1 cut into chunks

      Green bell pepper, 1 cut into chunks

      Salt

      Scallion, 2 sliced.
         
      Method

      First, cut the chicken into bite sized pieces and marinate in 1½ teaspoons light soy sauce, 3 teaspoons of Shaoxing and 1½ teaspoons of cornstarch. Set aside for about twenty minutes while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.

      Heat the wok and add three tablespoons cooking oil. Add the ginger, garlic, star anise, cinnamon stick, bay leaves, Sichuan peppercorns and chilies. Fry on a low heat for a  minute or so. If they look about to burn, splash a little water into your wok. This will lower the temperature slightly. Add the chicken and turn up the heat. Continue frying until the meat is nicely seared, then add the potatoes and carrots. Stir fry a minute more then add 2 teaspoons of the dark soy sauce, 2 tablespoons of the light soy sauce and 2 tablespoons of the Shaoxing wine along with 3 cups of water. Bring to a boil, then reduce to medium. Cover and cook for around 15-20 minutes until the potatoes are done.

      While the main dish is cooking, cook the noodles separately according to the packet instructions.  Reserve  some of the noodle cooking water and drain.

      When the chicken and potatoes are done, you may add a little of the noodle water if the dish appears on the dry side. It should be saucy, but not soupy. Add the bell peppers and cook for three to four minutes more. Add scallions. Check seasoning and add some salt if it needs it. It may not due to the soy sauce and, if in the USA, Shaoxing wine.

      Serve on a large plate for everyone to help themselves from. Plate the noodles first, then cover with the meat and potato. Enjoy.

      Way back in the 1990’s, I was living in west Hunan, a truly beautiful part of China. One day, some colleagues suggested we all go for lunch the next day, a Saturday. Seemed reasonable to me. I like a bit of lunch.
       
      “OK. We’ll pick you up at 7 am.”
       
      “Excuse me? 7 am for lunch?
       
      “Yes. We have to go by car.”
       
      Well, of course, they finally picked me up at 8.30, drove in circles for an hour trying to find the guy who knew the way, then headed off into the wilds of Hunan. We drove for hours, but the scenery was beautiful, and the thousand foot drops at the side of the crash barrier free road as we headed up the mountains certainly kept me awake.
       
      After an eternity of bad driving along hair-raising roads which had this old atheist praying, we stopped at a run down shack in the middle of nowhere. I assumed that this was a temporary stop because the driver needed to cop a urination or something, but no. This was our lunch venue.
       
      We shuffled into one of the two rooms the shack consisted of and I distinctly remember that one of my hosts took charge of the lunch ordering process.
       
      “We want lunch for eight.” There was no menu.
       
      The waitress, who was also the cook, scuttled away to the other room of the shack which was apparently a kitchen.
       
      We sat there for a while discussing the shocking rise in bean sprout prices and other matters of national importance, then the first dish turned up. A pile of steaming hot meat surrounded by steaming hot chillies. It was delicious.
       
      “What is this meat?” I asked.
       
      About half of the party spoke some English, but my Chinese was even worse than it is now, so communications weren’t all they could be. There was a brief (by Chinese standards) meeting and they announced:
       
      “It’s wild animal.”
       
      Over the next hour or so, several other dishes arrived. They were all piles of steaming hot meat surrounded by steaming hot chillies, but the sauces and vegetable accompaniments varied. And all were very, very good indeed.
       
      “What’s this one?” I ventured.
       
      “A different wild animal.”
       
      “And this?”
       
      “Another wild animal.”
       
      “And this?”
       
      “A wild animal which is not the wild animal in the other dishes”
       
      I wandered off to the kitchen, as you can do in rural Chinese restaurants, and inspected the contents of their larder, fridge, etc. No clues.
       
      I returned to the table with a bit of an idea.
       
      “Please write down the Chinese names of all these animals we have eaten. I will look in my dictionary when I get home.”
       
      They looked at each other, consulted, argued and finally announced:
       
      “Sorry! We don’t know in Chinese either. “
       
      Whether that was true or just a way to get out of telling me what I had eaten, I’ll never know. I certainly wouldn’t be able to find the restaurant again.
       
      This all took place way back in the days before digital cameras, so I have no illustrations from that particular meal. But I’m guessing one of the dishes was bamboo rat.

      Note: This follows on from the Munching with the Miao topic.
       
      The three-hour journey north from Miao territory ended up taking four, as the driver missed a turning and we had to drive on to the next exit and go back. But our hosts waited for us at the expressway exit and led us up a winding road to our destination - Buyang 10,000 mu tea plantation (布央万亩茶园 bù yāng wàn mǔ chá yuán) The 'mu' is  a Chinese measurement of area equal to 0.07 of a hectare, but the 10,000 figure is just another Chinese way of saying "very large".
       
      We were in Sanjiang Dong Autonomous County, where 57% of the inhabitants are Dong.
       
      The Dong people (also known as the Kam) are noted for their tea, love of glutinous rice and their carpentry and architecture. And their hospitality. They tend to live at the foot of mountains, unlike the Miao who live in the mid-levels.
       
      By the time we arrived, it was lunch time, but first we had to have a sip of the local tea. This lady did the preparation duty.
       

       

       
      This was what we call black tea, but the Chinese more sensibly call 'red tea'. There is something special about drinking tea when you can see the bush it grew on just outside the window!
       
      Then into lunch:
       

       

      Chicken Soup
       

      The ubiquitous Egg and Tomato
       

      Dried fish with soy beans and chilli peppers. Delicious.
       

      Stir fried lotus root
       

      Daikon Radish
       

      Rice Paddy Fish Deep Fried in Camellia Oil - wonderful with a smoky flavour, but they are not smoked.
       

      Out of Focus Corn and mixed vegetable
       

      Fried Beans
       

      Steamed Pumpkin
       

      Chicken
       

      Beef with Bitter Melon
       

      Glutinous (Sticky) Rice
       

      Oranges
       

      The juiciest pomelo ever. The area is known for the quality of its pomelos.
       
      After lunch we headed out to explore the tea plantation.
       

       

       

       

       
      Interspersed with the tea plants are these camellia trees, the seeds of which are used to make the Dong people's preferred cooking oil.
       

       
      As we climbed the terraces we could hear singing and then came across this group of women. They are the tea pickers. It isn't tea picking time, but they came out in their traditional costumes to welcome us with their call and response music. They do often sing when picking. They were clearly enjoying themselves.
       

       
      And here they are:
       
       
      After our serenade we headed off again, this time to the east and the most memorable meal of the trip. Coming soon.

      It sometimes seems likes every town in China has its own special take on noodles. Here in Liuzhou, Guangxi the local dish is Luosifen (螺蛳粉 luó sī fěn).
       
      It is a dish of rice noodles served in a very spicy stock made from the local river snails and pig bones which are stewed for hours with black cardamom, fennel seed, dried tangerine peel, cassia bark, cloves, pepper, bay leaf, licorice root, sand ginger, and star anise. Various pickled vegetables, dried tofu skin, fresh green vegetables, peanuts and loads of chilli are then usually added. Few restaurants ever reveal their precise recipe, so this is tentative. Luosifen is only really eaten in small restaurants and roadside stalls. I've never heard of anyone making it at home.
       
      In order to promote tourism to the city, the local government organised a food festival featuring an event named "10,000 people eat luosifen together." (In Chinese 10,000 often just means "many".)
       
      10,000 people (or a lot of people anyway) gathered at Liuzhou International Convention and Exhibition Centre for the grand Liuzhou luosifen eat-in. Well, they gathered in front of the centre – the actual centre is a bleak, unfinished, deserted shell of a building. I disguised myself as a noodle and joined them. 10,001.
       

       
      The vast majority of the 10,000 were students from the local colleges who patiently and happily lined up to be seated. Hey, mix students and free food – of course they are happy.
       

       
      Each table was equipped with a basket containing bottled water, a thermos flask of hot water, paper bowls, tissues etc. And most importantly, a bunch of Luosifen caps. These read “万人同品螺蛳粉” which means “10,000 people together enjoy luosifen”
       

       
      Yep, that is the soup pot! 15 meters in diameter and holding eleven tons of stock. Full of snails and pork bones, spices etc. Chefs delicately added ingredients to achieve the precise, subtle taste required.
       

       
      Noodles were distributed, soup added and dried ingredients incorporated then there was the sound of 10,000 people slurping.
       

      Surrounding the luosifen eating area were several stalls selling different goodies. Lamb kebabs (羊肉串) seemed most popular, but there was all sorts of food. Here are few of the delights on offer.
