How to make it

  • first, cook the beef. - in case you do not know how to, her's how you do it:
  • clean and wash soup green, coarsely chop them.
  • rinse and pat dry beef
  • put greens, water and some bay leaves and peppercorns into pot
  • bring to boil, add beef
  • (some people put it all into cold water - you can do that as you may)
  • water should just about cover beef.
  • bring to boil again, remove foam from surface so stock does not turn cloudy
  • reduce heat to soft boil, do not cover completely with lid
  • now add salt and simmer for about two hours
  • cabbage
  • boil water with salt and baking soda, cook cabbage until
  • leaves are soft
  • drain
  • some people just chop the cabbage coarsely, add some butter and nutweg..and leave it at that
  • some peel and chop onion,
  • fry bacon and onion
  • sprinkle with some flour,
  • sweat flour and add some of the beef water or cabbage water (I add a bit of cream, too)
  • keep stirring to make smooth sauce
  • Horsereadish sauce
  • Get a fresh, crisp root
  • cut off ends, peel and grate horseradish
  • now, there are two ways you can do it:
  • when radish has been grated, use chopping knife to really get radsih fine
  • put into bowl,
  • add sour cream (rich!)
  • some dijonb mustard, salt, pepper, stir...
  • thats it
  • now for the other sauce:
  • put butter into pan, add horseradish,
  • sprinkle with flour, sweat lightly
  • add meat stock, some cream, cook until thickended
  • season with salt, white pepper, to taste
  • now comes the nice part
  • prepared serving dish(es)
  • place cabbe on serving dish, ladle sauce (made with onion and pork belley) over cabbage, slice beef, place on platter with cabbage
  • serve the sauces separately.
  • Yes, I know - a lot of work - and I only do this once or twice during the winter - but it is worth it!
