We eat a lot of salads in the summer, but every once in awhile, we need to pause for some comfort food. Our friend, Bill, brought us three heads of very tender cabbage from his garden so My Honey just had to make Norwegian Cabbage and Lamb.
The recipe is so simple:
Enough fresh cabbage to fill your pot. Cut cabbage in slices.
Chunks of lamb. We use a lamb leg and cut it in chunks.
Pepper corns to taste. We like a lot of them. You can put them in a bag and remove it when you serve, or as is done in Norway, you can fish them out as you eat.
In a large pot or in a crock pot layer cabbage, lamb, pepper corns, cabbage, lamb, pepper corns, etc. until pot is full. Add enough water so that it covers about half of the contents in the pot. Cook on low until the cabbage turns brown - this will be several hours. Serve with boiled potatoes or, in our case this time, fresh bread.
Simple comfort food!
