Item: Pork knuckle in Luxembourg
Date: March 26, 2011
Location: Luxembourg City, Luxembourg
For some reason I thought this was pork neck, but it was actually pork knuckle, which I had when I visited Luxembourg. The country’s cuisine certainly has a lot of influence from surrounding countries, with the knuckle being very similar to German schweinshaxe. And wow it was huge. Don’t judge by the photo, believe me when I tell you that it is one gigantic hunk of meat. What surprised me, though, was that for the first time in my life, I was able to voluntarily place a piece of fat meat in my mouth without feeling disgusted. I absolutely loved it!
