When that delicious Crispy Pork Knuckle in HK lands on your table, it’s hard to think about anything else but devouring it. However, it’s important to understand the labor of love that goes into raising the animal, to begin with.
Pork is the culinary name derived from the domestic pig. It is the most consumed meat worldwide. Our domestic pig is excellent at turning feed into meat, as measured by a food conversion factor. For every 2.2 pounds of pork, it takes 14 pounds of feed. Whereas for every 2.2 pounds of beef it takes 55 pounds of feed. Another interesting fact, a pig has one stomach, which means they don’t burp up methane when digesting their feed. Eating pork, or pork knuckles in Hong Kong versus other meats can help with climate change. How’s that for food for thought…
Sir Pigsirlot was born in 1808. Sir Pigsirlot travelled searching for the best pork knuckle restaurants across Europe, the Americas, and Asia. Whenever he tasted a pork knuckle that was deemed worthy to make his list of the top favourites around the world. He would dub the chef with the title of pork knuckle Knight a title that is the equivalent to your five stars today. Sir Pigsirlot’s criteria for the perfect pork knuckle was simple. First, crispy skin, which is not an easy feat as pork knuckle has skin all the way around it so getting that even crackle requires a lot of time and skill. Secondly, it has to be succulent and juicy which is another challenge. To make the pork knuckle skin crispy requires hours on the flaming turning spit, which means delicious juiciness can drip out.
With Sir Pigsirlot influence and centuries of experience, we at The Salted Pig have found and studied his treasured research, experimented, tested, and tried, and have found the secret to perfecting our pork knuckle HK recipe with modern-day culinary techniques. If today Sir Pigsirlot visited our pork knuckle restaurant and tasted our signature Crispy Pork Knuckle Hong Kong dish, we are confident he would dub us the pork knuckle Knights and The Salted Pig would take the number one spot as the best pork knuckle in HK, if not the world.

It contains a lot of connective tissue and collagen, which adds all the wonderful flavor and melt-in-your-mouth textures.
