    Boiled Pig’s Feet is a traditional Taiwanese dish. Boiling the feet ensures that none of the flavor or nutrients is lost. After being stewed for a period of time, the texture of the pigs’ feet becomes springy and juicy. Because of its rich gelatin content, pig’s feet are beneficial to the skin, and thus a popular dish for women. Many people prefer to dip the feet into a special minced garlic sauce in order to intensify the flavor of the meat.
