Eisbein (help·info) is a German culinary dish of pickled ham hock, usually slightly boiled. In parts of Germany it is known as Schweinshaxe, and it is usually grilled. The Polish dish golonka and Swedish dish fläsklägg are very similar, alternatively grilled on a barbecue.
Eisbein is usually sold already cured and sometimes smoked, and then used in simple dishes, for example in Berlin served with pease pudding. In Germany, Eisbein is very commonly served with boiled or mashed potatoes or sauerkraut, and with mustard.
