I had to rate this recipe. I live in Norway, am an American from Seattle, and this is exactly how my Norwegian husband makes his fårikål. We love it and look forward to fresh lamb in September. Thanks for posting this very traditional and tasty recipe. Vanessa

An excellent way to celebrate National Far I Kal day in Norway. Just remember to add a cup or so of water, put on the heat, cover and when it comes to a boil, turn to simmer for a couple of hours.

The recipe is missing a lot of steps. How long does it cook? Should it simmer or boil?

Every other reviewer is familiar with the recipe, so they're not missing the info like a non-Norwegian like me...

Excellent! Don't be afraid to try this, absolutely add the potatoes and carrots. Simmer for 2 hours, yum! Hubby is on his third bowl now.

Thank you!!!! We tried this dish at Disneyworld and my family LOVED it. Even though I am part Norwegian, I was never taught any of the foods. My family LOVES this and asks me to make it.
