Pig stomach

Recommended Posts

I have been furnished some pig stomach, and I’ve actually not cooked it before. Went online expecting Asian stir frys, but found countless hog maw recipes from Pennsylvanian grandmothers, who presumably served it as a break from scrapple.

 

Thoughts? Stuff it? Cook slow or fast?

Yes. Also you can blanch briefly, then marinade in some salty and sweet combo (e.g. soy+mirin) and grill. Chewy results.

I do like the look of the stuffed recipes. Logically same idea as haggis, of course.

Saumagen. It was Helmut Kohl's favorite dish - he did his best to popularize this Palatinate speciality, hosting dinners at the Deidesheimer Hof with various world leaders of the day (Thatcher didn't much care for it, as I recall). I thought it was during a post-dinner stroll there with Gorbachev that Kohl sealed the withdrawal of troops from the GDR, but I must be conflating two different events. Der Spiegel called it Sow's Stomach Diplomacy (German only). My late wife's aunt would make it for me when we visited family in Kassel. I loved it - much to everyone's disbelief. Good times.

I would have loved to have served Thatcher pig stomach. It looks great in the first link.

 

So: the quick sear, as one might attempt with thinly sliced heart, did not work. Rubber.

 

Slow and very low was the answer. I had one stomach marinated in soy, garlic, ginger, allspice, so that = Chinese; one in a pot with onions and chicken stock. Both good, but honestly both could have cooked for another two hours.

 

Cleaning them, it was like cleaning octopus bodies. Weird resemblance in color, shape, and texture.

 

ETA: I am buying the whole pig stomach for $3, hence the experiments. Serves two if you can find someone else (not a problem for me, because Dominicans).

Omg I’ve actually been in Deidesheimer Hof. But I had Spargel.
