How to make your roasted pork knuckle with boiled cabbage

To start with, this dish entails preparation a day before serving

Start preparing your cabbage and dumplings a day before. Boil your potatoes until their skin becomes soft.

Once done, leave potatoes to cool.

For your cabbage, get a bowl and combine them with your onion, apple and spices. Also add to the mixture wine, pepper, salt, pepper, sugar, bay leaves and spices. Allow to marinate overnight

On to day two!

Start by preheating your oven to 180ºC.

Get your pork knuckles and give them a generous rub down of oil, garlic, and a sprinkling of caraway seeds

Once done, get a baking dish and pour no more than 2 cm of water into the dish

Put your pork knuckles into the dish and roast for around 2 hours

To Cook your Cabbage,

Get your remaining onions, and fry them with butter and bacon.
Once fried, add a splash of red wine then add all the cabbage you marinated overnight.

Cover the pan and allow the wine to boil/cook your cabbage for 20 minutes over low heat.

Season to taste.

For the Potato Dumplings;

Go and peel the potatoes you prepared the day before and mash them to whatever consistency you prefer. (as for me, I like them really fine).

Add nutmeg, pepper, salt, chives flour and an egg into your mashed potato.
Now roll your mashed potato into a long sausage. Once done, cut them into golf ball sized pieces and roll into balls.

Now cook your dumplings in salted water until they start to float. This will take around 2 minutes.

To serve;

Place your pork knuckles on a plate and surround them with your dumplings and boil cabbage.

Maybe I missed it on the recipe, but how many and type of potatoes are in the recipe?

Katherine Truong#4

This looks amazing. Cabbage that is boiled usually looks so bland, but not this! I will certainly try this when I prepare dinner for my family tonight or tomorrow.

Timothy Geiger#5

Hi Katherine Truong, have you tried this recipe for yourself? I am considering making this for my family and was wondering how easy it was to prepare this. I know that online recipes can be challenging at times and I was wondering if you have had any real experience cooking this. Thank you .


Iam a pork lover i just wanna try this recipe at home and didn’t tried pork with cabbage i think it will be good combo

Linda Johnson#7

I normally dont really like cabbage at all. It is usually much too bland and watered down for me but this recipe has definitely changed my mind! I cooked it for dinner one night and my kids even liked it! Would definitely reccomend.

Cindy said: Perfect Burgers

I love this burger press, it makes the perfect burger every time. I love the non-stick, makes this so easy to use and so easy to clean.

Cindy said: Superior Cutting Board

I love this cutting board. It is a nice size so I can do a lot at one time. I like that it is reversible, that makes this doubly convenient. The one side has a groove the whole way around the edge which catches any liquids so I don't have a mess on my counter. It's quality material and cleans up nicely.

Cindy said: I love these measuring cups

This is such a nice set. I love the sizes, a size for different needs. The 4 cup is great for mixing in as well

Marie said: Grill brush

This grill brush is huge! It makes cleaning the grill so much faster then the tiny brushes that I normally find. I have been using it for a month now and it's still in amazing shape. Will last for a long time

Gene Cantwell said: Chef Remi BBQ Grill Brush

This is my second of this particular brush. I like the first one very much and it lasted through many cleanings. It was also very strong. I have broken some lesser made brushes. My only complaint is that the first one had a hook on it that I could hang in a specific spot on the grill. I ordered this one specifically because I though it would have the hook on the end like it predecessor. Alas, it didn't. We drilled the end and installed a hook ourselves. I would have given it 5 stars had it come with the hook attached. I would suggest not removing the hook for future orders. (It still shows in the picture on the website)
