Pork feet stew – Körömpörkölt

by | Nov 18, 2016 | Meat dishes

Körömpörkölt is the heavyweight champion of stews. Its taste and consistency differ completely from other stews, this sticky dish is unique in its way. It can be also treated as a “medicinal preparation” because körömpörkölt is rich in collagen, which is good for your skin and joints.

I always use the hind pork feet as they are fleshier than the front feet. I usually ask the butcher to cut the feet into bigger pieces, so I just have to rinse and clean them at home.

Pork feet stew is served with boiled potatoes that can be cooked in the stew. In this case their taste will be more intensive. Of course, this is optional, if you want, you can cook the potatoes in salty water.
The gravy of a good pork feet stew is thick, sticky and gluey, meat easily comes off the bone. As this dish can’t be eaten in a civilized manner, it’s recommended to partake of it only with family and friends.

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
