This is a combination of old Chinese, Southeast Asian and Cebuano traditional food. You can see this often on
celebration like fiesta, birthdays and weddings.
It’s not so healthy because your are eating more fats, but who cares, sometimes we want to
respond to our cravings. 🙂
We call this Humba, but my Viet cookbook called this Caramelized Pork’s Feet Stew! Don’t worry this doesn’t
taste like feet anymore, hehehe! It taste really GOOD!
One more thing, it has 3 spices that I love, actually 4 but is not available. Star Anise, Clove and Cinnamon and Lemon Grass (not available), they make the stew smells really good!
red chilies (optional when you want it so spicy)
1. In a saucepan, dissolve sugar with water until golden brown as caramel ( do not burn it will go bitter).
2. When golden, remove from heat and pour in the water.
3. Put the pan back over the heat and add the pork’s feet, ginger, star anise, cinnamon, clove, garlic ginger,
salt, onions, spring onions, pepper, soy sauce and fish sauce. Simmer for 3-4 hrs until meat is very tender.
3. When meat is tender, put the hard boiled egg in and simmer for 10 mins.
4. Garnish with Sesame seed and sprint onions.
4. Serve hot with rice.
