My mom used to cook this every festive occasion. Everybody in the family likes it especially my daughter. Serve with hot cooked rice, if desired.

Use the water you soak your mushrooms in for additional flavor. I didn't have anywhere near 5 pounds of pork leg so I added 1/2 pound of ground pork that needed used up. I also had some shaved carrots that needed used and I added them in the last 20 minutes of cooking. This turned out a lot better than I expected and is something I would make again. I had the leftover today and added a generous squirt of Sriracha and that added a nice touch as well. Read More
