Smoked Hocks and Red Cabbage Stew


One of the top 3 favourites in my family...we all love it! 
Sauerkraut is often used instead of fresh cabbage. In that case, don't add salt and /or stock powder, as sauerkraut can be very salty.

Ingredients:
2-3 tbs oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 large carrot, sliced
150 g speck (bacon), chopped
1 large or 2 small smoked pork hocks
2 garlic cloves, crushed
8-10 black pepper corns (cracked)
1-2 bay leaves
1 small red cabbage, cut into wedges (white cabbage is OK)
1 can diced tomatoes
'Vegeta' or other vegetable/chicken stock powder
2-3 tbs white vinegar (only if using fresh cabbage)
peeled potatoes (optional)
water as needed
salt and pepper to taste
Method:
Heat oil in a large  pan; sautee onion and bacon. Add carrots, garlic, hocks and spices. Mix then add all other ingredients, finishing with cabbage and canned tomato. Pour some water, bring to boil, then lower heat and cook for 2 hours. Check the taste, adjust it and serve with rice or mashed potatoes.




Crveni Kupus sa Dimljenom Potkoljenicom

Jedno od 3 najdraza jela u mojoj porodici...svi ga volimo! Ukoliko koristite kiseli kupus, ne dodavati so i Vegetu, prije nego probate ukus.

Potrebno:
2-3 K ulja
1 veci crveni luk, sjeckan
1 veca mrkva, oguljena i izrezana
150 gr mesnate slanine, cjeckane
1 veca ili 2 manje prasece dimljene potkoljenice
2 cena bijelog luks, protisnuta
8-10 zrna crnog bibera, napuknuta (pritisnuti ravnom stranicom noza)
1-2 lista lovora
1 manji crveni kupus, rezan na rebarca (moze i obicni bijeli)
1 konzerva paradajza, sjeckan
Vegeta (po potrebi)
2-3 K bijelog sirceta , samo ako koristite svjez kupus
nekoliko oguljenih krompira (po zelji)
voda po potrebi
so i biber, po potrebi
Nacin:
Zagrijte ulje u vecoj posudi, proprzite luk i slaninu. Ubacite mrkvu, bijeli luk, potkoljenice i ostale zacine. Promijesajte na vatri par minuta, zatim ubacite sve ostale sastojke; neka kupus i konzervirani paradajz budu zadnji. Zalijte sa malo vode, dovedite do vrenja i zatim krckajte oko 2 sata. Provjerite ukus i sluzite sa rizom ili pire-krompirom.

  1. mmmm, ovo je predobro. Obično nešto slično pravim sa kiselim kupusom ali ovo sa svežim crvenim mi izgleda fenomenalno.

  2. Kod mojih bi to prošlo jedino na mom tanjuru. Meni super izgleda, vjerujem da je i finog okusa.Kupus je super namirnica, osim vlakana bogat je i C vitaminom (pogotovo kiseli...)

  4. Pork hocks are very popular around Christmas in our French Canadian area, but I have never tried them smoked; looks good.

  5. Nisam ovo jelo probala sa svježim kupusom, ali s kiselim je odlično. Čak i rijetko jedemo crveni kupus, a baš lijepo izgleda

  6. Super zanimljivo jelo, ovdje se crveni kupus dosta kuha, za razliku od nasih podrucja gdje smo ga nekako vise jeli za salatu.
