LOVE this recipe! Not much meat on pig's feet, but by end of cooking, those bits are super succulent. I used my fingers to squish meat from bones. This recipe grants multiple basic variations - by using broth, gravy, bones, and meat, all wonderfully flavorful and talk about cheap! I've new appreciation for pig's feet! A caveat: caution to not over-salt.
