Schweinshaxe – Roasted Pork Knuckle – is an Oktoberfest staple that is found across the beer halls of Bavaria and throughout the world-famous folk festival. This big hunk of meat is traditionally served with vegetables, sauerkraut and other classic German sides and is a classically smokey dish for those who have a love of German cuisine.

Try our delicious German pork Knuckle

Known in the UK as Ham Hock, German pork knuckle is not brined and it usually served roasted and on the bone. This process gives it a more smokey flavour; one that’s deep, rich and typical of German food. If you’ve been looking for the authentic taste of Oktoberfest and Bavarian cuisine more generally, German roast pork knuckle is a must-try for something slightly different.

Roast pork knuckle: an authentic Oktoberfest classic

Oktoberfest has spread all across the world from its beginnings in Munich – luckily for us! With that in mind, anyone who has been to an Oktoberfest-inspired event in the UK may have tried – and enjoyed – this dish already. If you enjoyed your first taste of Schweinshaxe at your local Oktoberfest event, then you’re in luck! The Sausage Man has been supplying German pork knuckle to event organisers in the UK for more than 15 years. We source our meat directly from German Master Butchers, so you can be sure that you’ll get the same great taste at home as you did when you tried it at a local Oktoberfest event.

Our German roast pork knuckle is easy to prepare!

This tasty Bavarian classic comes from The Sausage Man precooked for your convenience, so all you need to do is reheat it and serve. We like our German Pork Knuckle on a bed of traditional Schlachtekraut (German Butcher’s Cabbage), and a side of Bratkartoffeln (German Fried Potatoes).

    Like all Sausageman products this just needs reheating to serve, and like all Sausageman products you get no instructions on how best to do that. I heated in a fan oven at 170c for about half an hour and it didn’t really work. The meat was too dry and the skin not at all crispy. It’s a shame because this could be great product if reheated correctly. I won’t be buying again until there are better reheating instructions.
