Recipe tip

Knieper cabbage is now available in many varieties - whether traditional like Grams' or rural-experimental, Knieper is diverse. The classic grandmother's recipe is and remains an absolute hit:

Ingredients for four people:

  • 1 kg of raw Knieper cabbage
  • 350 g pork belly
  • 150 g smoked bacon
  • 200 g lard
  • Onions and spices (bay leaf, salt, allspice)

Preparation:
Bring the pork belly with the onions and spices to a boil so that a strong broth is created.
Line a stew pan with the smoked bacon. Pour the cabbage on top, spread the lard on the cabbage and pour the stock over it.
Let simmer in the oven at 120-150 ° C for about 2-3 hours. Add portion-sized pork belly and lung sausages.
Depending on the desired consistency, add the rest of the broth and continue to simmer without the lid until everything is done. Season.
Serve with boiled or jacket potatoes.

Bon appetit!
