Trotter gumbo is one of many variations Coquette prepares at the restaurant. To cook at home, try throwing in any meat leftovers you may have, or even substituting the pork trotters for your favorite braised meats.

A few extra tips from the chef:

  1. Any substantial braising greens will work with this recipe, from beet and turnip greens to rapini and dandelion greens. Experiment and find your favorite.
  2. Add okra if that’s your thing. But either way, add greens to your gumbo, cause its awesome.
  3. We make are own Worcestershire sauce, and that has changed the whole game for us. Many homemade Worcestershire sauce recipes are floating around the internet, and we highly recommend taking a crack at one of them. It will change your gumbo game!
