I don't even like Pork, but was tricked into tasting this dish when I was told it was chicken. WOW! The meat was sooo tender and juicy; so tender in fact, that it was literally falling apart! It was like nothing I'd ever tasted before! Definitely not like my mother's hard, crusty pork chops! lol! This recipes goes hand in hand w/ some mashed potatoes. Just pour the leftover gravy on the taters' and enjoy!
We grew up eatting the potato dumplings (palt) which are from northern Sweden and use raw potato in the dough. But I prefer this dumpling, that is more common in the southern Sweden. These dumplings are heavy winter time comfort food. The filling is usually cooked meatballs. But any kind of cooked meat will work. ( I like pork best). Sometimes, if the dough is too dry, I add an additional egg yolk or whole egg.
We always ate these with lots of melted butter and cranberry or lingon jam, and a cold glass of milk. Leftovers taste really good cut into pieces and fried up crispy for breakfast the next day.
This recipe is from an old Swedish cookbook of my mother's...the title is missing!
One of our family's favorites. Taken from a swedish cookbook Mrs Malm got for my mother from Sweden. We usually made a thin white cream sauce in the pan the meatballs cooked in, or used a can of cream of mushroom soup. Have with mashed potatos and cooked vegetables.
My mother who is Swedish hates when I make this quick dish (she spends all day making Swedish Meatballs) but all the girls at work love it and always ask me to make it. I don't tell them how quick it is. Sometimes I do make my own meatballs and then throw them into the crock pot for this very quick and delicious dish.
This variation on cassoulet uses lentils instead of the traditional white beans. In place of pork, you may substitute beef bottom round. *EDIT*I have had a problem with the lentil's cooking well in the crock pot. I suggest that you pre-soak them for an hour prior to adding them to the crock pot and cook on high and allowing for an extra 1/2 hours cooking time if it's needed.
