| December 19, 2014 | 25 Comments

A classic French Canadian meal to be served with the turkey for Christmas dinner, the “Ragoût de Pattes de Cochon” (Stewed Pig’s Feet). It is definitely a favourite meal at our house. The meat is so tender that it melts in your mouth!

Take the pork’s feet and cut the skin from top to bottom with a kitchen scissor. Remove the meat from the feet with a knife and put in a medium bowl.

  3. loriag says:

    Have to admit the words pigs feet at first did not do much for me, but I after reading the recipe, I might consider trying it.

  4. Stephanie LaPlante says:

    I can’t say I’d ever eat this but my dad would absolutely love it.

  5. Je fais toujours un ragoût de pattes et boulettes le 24 décembre. Aujourd’hui j’ai pas trouvé de pattes de cochon au Métro. Toi tu as trouvé ou?

  6. Elizabeth Matthiesen says:

    Knowing that this is pigs feet would prevent me even trying this! My daughter would probably love it – she eats things like 100 yr old eggs (that’s their name!). They are black in colour and it’s a fertilised egg. I saw her eat one and nearly puked on seeing the little beak.

  7. Brenda A says:

    I have often seen pigs feet in Farm Boy and wondered “what on earth do you do with those?” Now I know! I really enjoy reading these recipes you have posted recently. Thanks!

  13. kathy downey says:

    We buy them bottled in the store here they are called Salted Pork Hocks

  14. Shelly says:

    Am trying to make ragout for my first time. I can’t seem to find a store in Ottawa that carries browned flour — and I’ve heard that browning flour yourself in a pan can really stink.

    Any suggestions where to buy browned flour in Ottawa?

    Can’t wait to try making this, I love ragout.

    • Lyne says:

      I just purchased mine at Sobeys. It’s called Toasted flour by Blouin. The package is yellow and red. They have a dark or light one, I chose the light one.

  15. Wanda Tracey says:
