Haxe Heaven in a Box
Haxe Heaven in a box
DescriptionHearty all in one Schweinehaxe meal.
Includes the following products:
1x Siegi's Ham Shank (Schweinehaxe)
1x Melle's Best Kartoffel Knödel 300g (10.6oz)
2x Hengstenberg Red Cabbage with Apple pouches 400g
1x Maggi Rahmsoße zu Braten
This is a complete meal in a box. This meal is great for two people, but might serve more.
If the Schweinshaxe (ham shank) is frozen you should defrost it in the refrigerator overnight or for several hours before you begin cooking it. We suggest the method that results in a dark-brown, crispy skin with hot, juicy pork inside the skin.
Set your oven to 350-degrees Fahrenheit. Place the Haxe (large size down) into a roasting pan covered with about an inch of water or beer to catch the fat drippings. Many people use a disposable, heavy-duty aluminum pan to make clean-up after the meal easier.
Roast the ham shank (Haxe) uncovered for at least 4 hours or until the skin of the Haxe is very hard and crispy. Cooking times can vary depending on your appliance, but you are after a dark brown skin which is a bit like a shell that keeps the meat inside the Haxe nice and moist. Many people like to nibble on the hard crispy skin as much or more than the actual meat.
Here's a VIDEO of Chef Uwe roasting a Schweinshaxe.
The side dishes:
Knödel are cooked until tender in simmering water. The red cabbage just needs to be heated through. The Rahmsosse (creamy gravy) can be prepared last and it just takes a couple of minutes.

Baby, it's cold outside! So that's when this BIER-drinking, meat-eater gets busy with the Haxe!!! This is a great combo of items. Everything my gal and I need, other than the BIER, which I have to supply myself. Mox nix!
