Chengdu Taste: Pork Crura with Special Flavour

Flavored Pork Crura. This is one of two dishes that involve Pork crura. You may be wondering what crura is. We were too; this was one of the dishes pictured on the menu and it seemed like it involved pig skin and trotters and that was advertisement enough for us. What shows up is a shank, all the way from the knee to the trotter. Massive and massively good. Not anywhere as hot as the picture might suggest, this was perfectly cooked with the meat tender but the skin not falling apart. The sauce was mostly sweet–brown sugar, star anise (I think)–with the chillis there mostly for garnish and just a bit of heat.
