Slow braised pork wings (or shanks) are cooked in coconut milk with five spice to create meltingly tender morsels in a deliciously flavorful broth.




  1. Preheat the oven to 325F.
  2. On the stovetop, heat a large ovenproof pan with an ovenproof lid over medium heat with the avocado oil. Add the onion, bell pepper, shallots and garlic.
  3. Soften for 10 minutes until onions are translucent. Add the five spice and stir to coat. Lay the pork wings on top of the vegetables.
  4. Add the coconut milk, coconut aminos, five spice, ginger, smoked paprika and lime juice.
  5. Cover the pan with the lid and place in the oven for 2 hours.
  6. Turn the wings over in the braising liquid, then recover and cook until tender, another 1 – 1 1/2 hours.
  7. Serve the wings on the bone covered with the vegetables, topped with fresh cilantro to taste.
  8. Optional: remove the wings from the pan and puree the vegetables and braising liquid together for a gravy.
