Hollanders like plain, substantial food and lots of it. This recipe is a perfect candidate for the slow cooker in these modern times. Serve with boiled potatoes. From the Michigan Dutch chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947.


  1. Simmer the pork hocks in water until tender, about three hours (if using a slow cooker, up to 8 hours).
  2. Cut cabbage into eighths; add to pot and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Cook until tender.
