TEBICHI - pig hands \(*o*)/^

TEBICHI (called 'TONSOKU'): means hands of porks. This is not so major dish in area except Okinawa, but well known as Okinawa cuisine. Okinawa is southern island, where about two-hour-fly from Tokyo. Okinawa is surrounded by beauuuuutiful ocean.

1) Boil warter in a pan
2) Put hands of porks in the pan, and one pack of DASHI and SAKE quantatively(usually "AWAMORI" is used, which is made in Okinawa)
3) Add some white MISO as much as you like.
4) Boil gently about two hours....
and ENJOY with dipping mustard!
Carrot, boiled eggs, or some vegitables can be added as you like. Key points are DASHI(check it out in my blog, 'Hijiki' section) again, and SAKE to enhance. You may be able to buy them at Japanese grocery store in your area.

Rich collagen contains ingredient to make your skin beautiful, and also take effect for aching joint, that is what I heard. People living in Tokyo(or except Okinawa) usually dont make this so often.

I honor Okinawa food culture, especially to cook 'pork hands' delectavely.
