Eisbein is the German name for a culinary dish involving the ham hock, which is usually braised for a long period of time. It is covered with a think layer of fat, and the meat is so tender and aromatic that it just melts in your mouth. It is commonly served with boiled or mashed potatoes and sauerkraut. I had the chance to taste this wonderful dish while in Berlin.
