Mustard greens braised pig trotters aka Kai choy chee sau ~ 芥菜猪手


This is a very appetising dish and goes very well with plain white rice or even on its own.   If you like mustard leaves cooked this way like I do, you can add more.   This dish tastes much better the next day when it has 'matured' and the meat and mustard leaves have been infused with the semi sweet, sour and salty sauce........ Dig in!

  2. Hi Soke Hah, I would go for the mustard leaves with the thick trotter skin. Awesome if it is sourish. Goes well with rice and even thick porridge.
