Hax'n or Schweinehaxe (Pork Knuckle)

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
My post on the Top Chef thread regarding beer and food made me think of my favorite beer/food pairing, which is Dunkel (Dark German Lager) with Pork... specifically, the Hax'n at Zum Schneider in NYC is a dream come true.

Does anyone have a recipe for Hax'n, also called Schweinehaxe? Seems to be pretty basic other than finding the specific cut of meat.... any and all tips are appreciated.

Try googling Schweinshaxn or if you understand German, google Schweinshaxn mit Sauerkraut rezept.
Don't forget to put caraway seeds in the sauerkraut

That looks like Eisbein. I couldn't tell you if that is the same as Haxe. I've only had it boiled and wouldn't exactly call it a treat. I thought Haxe might be a roasted version with crispy skin. I think the cut is just a big fresh ham hock.

Same thing, It comes from an unsmoked pork hock.There are many ways to prepare it.

I know what you mean Steve. I spent two years there.
How about a king sized jaegerschnitzel?

Whereabouts?......The few days I was there, I stayed in Moosburg for 3 days or so.....also had the opportunity to go to Heufeld for a morning/early afternoon, another larger town down the road from Moosburg , which the name escapes me right now (I think it starts with an "L", had a river running thru the center of town, and they had some tunnel thru a mountainside) for dinner one night, and an afternoon in Munich.

Moosburg was a quaint, cool little town with lots of neat shops and such.....except, nearly NO ONE spoke English, so I had to struggle with my two semesters of High School German and my German-English dictionary.....

I was stationed in Amberg and traveled all over Bavaria. My unit (2nd ACR) was in charge of patrolling the entire Czech border during the Cold War. I got to go skiing in the Alps every February, went to the Oktoberfest in Munich twice and took a boat cruise down the Danube where they served venison tenderloin (one of the best meals I've ever had).
I'll get there back one of these years.

Anyone ever have the Scheuferle in Franken? It's the shoulder blade, bone in, cut long ways, unreal.

The BOMB!!!

Bamberg has plenty, go to Schlenkerla Gasthaus. Have a Rauchbier while yer at it!
