How To Make Deep-Fried Pig Wings

Switch up your usual game-day snacks with these crispy pig wings. Bone-in pork shanks are deep-fried and slathered with a sweet and spicy sauce.

Preparation: 30 minutes
Cooking: 2 hours 15 minutes
Total: 2 hours 45 minutes



  • 12pork shanks,bone-in, trimmed

  1. Cover the pork shanks with water in a large pot over medium heat, then bring to a boil.

  3. Drain the pork shanks and allow to cool for about 15 minutes. Remove surface moisture with paper towels.

  4. Pour the root beer into a saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for about 20 minutes until reduced to 4 cups.

  5. Stir the apple butter and hot sauce into root beer, then reduce the heat to low and simmer to keep warm, stirring occasionally.

  6. Heat vegetable oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F.

  7. Gently lower pork shanks into the hot oil, 2 or 3 at a time, and deep-fry for about 3 minutes per batch until meat is crisp and brown. Drain on a plate lined with paper towels.

  8. Serve pork shanks slathered with hot apple butter sauce, and enjoy!
