Regional German Food: Schweinshaxen also known as Sauhaxn from Bayern (Bavaria), Southern Germany, are roasted ham hocks aka pork knuckles. A variation of this is known in other parts of Germany as Eisbein, in which the ham hock is pickled and slightly boiled, but it’s not nearly as popular as in Bavaria and thus, is a “typical” Bavarian food to try. It originally is one of the old rustic peasant dishes from centuries past, in which inexpensive cuts of meat were made delicious through particular cooking methods. Such cuts generally require long periods of preparation in which the meat is marinated for days, sometimes even up to a week. The Schweinshaxe is then roasted at low temperatures for 2-3 hours. The Bavarian version is classically served with potato dumplings and red cabbage, or with sauerkraut and potatoes.
