When stationed in Germany for a bit, there was a restaurant where they made single serving roasted pork shanks served over a bed of mashed potatoes and sauerkraut.

The chef showed me how she did it, but I don't remember all of it so I'm looking for help.

I know the pork shanks were small and not the whole shank...They were put in a pot to melt in the oven for a couple of hours and then a liquid was added, and another couple of hours of slow roasting in the oven...I'm pretty sure the liquid was apple juice based and they used it to deglaze the pot and used it as a topping for the pork/potatoes/sauerkraut.

I had that in several towns in Germany, but Idar-Oberstein had the best.

I've looked everywhere on the internet, but can't find this dish and can't remember the name of it.

Any clues?

Yep, I love it too. Kinda like German comfort food. Popular at outdoor festivals. I found it at a place in Vienna, among other places. If we are thinking of the same stuff. Try this (just search for german pork shanks)

That's it.

Thanks! When I searched I kept getting whole shanks

Should have been searching knuckle instead of shank.

I think I will try that this weekend.

Are you talking about Schweinshaxen Braten? One of my favorites! If so, I've found it at several German restaurants in the USA.
