Braised Pork Knuckles and Tofu with Black Beans

Braised Pork Knuckles and Tofu with Black Beans. Pork leg knuckles are always a winner to most pork loving Pinoys. This pork is nothing to do with the pork barrel that we Pinoy want abolish. This pork is however sinfully delish.

Braised Pork Knuckles and Tofu with Black Beans is another OPC original dish that I would like to share. Tokwa or firm tofu goes best with braised meat dishes beside being healthy it is also good as meat extenders. I have been regularly using firm tofu on my recipes both as meat extender or as an healthy alternative to meat. For today’s Braised Pork Knuckles and Tofu with Black Beans, tufo is used or added because I thought it will best compliment the fatty fork leg. As expected the dish came out extremely delicious. Here is the recipe of my Braised Pork Knuckles and Tofu with Black Beans.


1 pork leg, knuckle, sliced/cut crosswise

1 piece big block tofu, sliced into thin rectangles, fried

1/2 cup tausi, salted black beans, drained and rinsed

1 head garlic, chopped

2 tbsp. Black bean sauce

2-3 pcs. star anise

1/2 tsp. cracked peppercorn
