        Pork stock is a wonderful flavoring agent or base for soups - oriental noodle soups, bean or pea soups. It is also good for use in any greens dish. We also use it in a number of oriental, mexican and hispanic dishes. It adds a level of flavor that can not be found in chicken stock.
         
        And yes there are pork stock mixes/cubes out there, I have found them (when they can be found) to be way too salty.

          Foodbme: The soups in the best Chinese and Vietnamese restaurants start as stock made from pork neck bones. Trust me. I know!

            I know what I'd use it for. Ramen! That's the classic ramen broth in most Japanese ramen houses. Yumm!

              I use the pork stock recipe for all my bean dishes. It makes pinto beans and blackeyed peas taste heavenly. I also make a quick pork stock using my pressure cooker. I'll put it up in the next few days.

                      Scrumptious,
                      Noticed on your blog that someone said to use pigs feet because it adds more collagen to the stock. Makes sense!

                          Wait for the pressure cooking method as promised by "scrumptiouschef" to follow soon. Just substitute beef bones for pork bones.

                              I just reread this and my comment sounded flippant.  It was not meant that way.  I was just surprised recently when I noticed pork bouillon cubes when I was shopping in a Cuban market.
                               
                              My surprise was with it being pork.
                               
                              Now I want a big bowl of steaming hot Pho.

                                I am not trying to be difficult but most of above seems to be difficult to me??  I would use pork stock as a seasoning and the process is sorta complicated to me.

                                  It sounds difficult, but it's not. Chop veggies, roast, boil, save.

                                    My mom uses pork stock for scrapple.  Whenever my mom makes pork-roast, short ribs, etc, she saves the bones, bits of pork, drippings, fat.  She freezes this & then makes stock for scrapple.  I am going to WV next month for her 90th birthday & she will have scrapple for my breakfasts.

                                      Just scored a big wild boar hog from a buddy who took him down in NE Texas a few days ago. Lots of good uses for this creature but am really looking forward to using his shanks for a batch of wild boar hog stock.
                                       
                                      Sticking a bunch in the freezer for a batch of burgoo next month too.

                                        Made a batch of Northern Beans this weekend with the pork stock recipe above. Incredible. Weather dipped down into the 50s as a screaming north'r rolled into Austin.

                                          One thing I am curious about, in both recipes you mention municipal water. Is there a specific reason?

                                            Old habit from cooking in a pro kitchen where we sometimes used spring and/or distilled water in our recipes.

                                              I would like to try this.  I have always just taken the easy way out and used canned/box/soup base as stock.  I even have a pork base from penzey's that isn't bad that I used in beans.
                                               
                                              However, this Thanskgiving i made trukey stock from 3 lbs of turkey wings using basically the same method though I did the simmering in the crock pot overnight.  I was absolutely floored by the difference in flavor.

                                                Once you make scratch stock,whether it be from Turkey or hog, you'll never go back.

                                                    Scored a bunch of gorgeous rutabaga from the market, looking forward to cooking these beauties in a nice batch of pork stock.

                                                      Those rutabaga came out great. After 20 minutes at full blast in the Kuhn Rikon they were fork tender. I removed them from the stock and mashed them with butter, heavy cream and good salt. Rutabaga are one of the great unsung tubers.
