Pork Pata SlicePork Pata Slice
The pata, or pork hock, is taken from either the back or front knee joints of a pig. You can fry or broil the pata. You can also braise it or include it in flavorful stews. When boiled, the skin on the pata becomes so tender that it practically melts in your mouth. It can also be made into the ever-popular Filipino favorite, crispy pata.
