Pork tails

What are pork tails?

Unsurprisingly, pork tails are, of course, the tails of pigs. But perhaps a little surprising is the fact that we can cook and eat them. Sure, they are perhaps one for the more adventurous cooks out there, but let us try and convince you all of the benefits that they yield.

Firstly, pork tails are very cheap. Secondly, they’re flavoursome. And thirdly, they’re versatile. So, without further ado, let’s have a look at how to cook pork tails.

How to cook pork tails

Pork tails can be cooked a number of ways, from roasting and stewing to deep frying and smoking. Roasted in the oven over a long period of time or braised in a liquid allows the meat to fully tenderise and further develop the flavour. Deep fried pigs tail should also be considered; crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside!

How long does it take to cook pork tails? As a rough guideline, deep fried pigs tail can take as little as 10 minutes and oven roasted, stewed or boiled pig’s tail takes around 2 hours.
