Boiled Miss Piggy's Ears

boiled Miss Piggy's ears

You can eat these boiled ears as is with a dipping sauce of your choice. You can also use them in other dishes. These ear strips may get gelatinous. I cut these into strips and put them in the refrigerator to be used later. The next day they all clumped together. If this happen you can gently and easily separate them apart with your fingers.

Boiled Miss Piggy's Ears


4 cleaned pig's ears (see How to Clean Pig's Ears post), may cut in half for easy cooking
About 1 tsp salt
About 10 cups water


Boil the pig's ears in a little salt and enough water to submerge the ears for about 30 minutes. I use a 5 or 6 quart heavy pot. Remove the ears and let them partially cooled before handling them. May cut the ears into 1/4 inch thin strips if interested.

*addendum: You may boil them longer if you prefer more tender ears.
