About this recipe: This is a popular meat dish from southern Norway. Lamb and cabbage are layered and stewed with peppercorns. Serve with boiled potatoes sprinkled with parsley.
I lived in norway for a couple of years and this was a popular dish served at a local community hall. I can't remember it being layered, but the norwegian version still had it's peppercorns which gave it a bit of colour even if you needed to pick them out as you ate. This recipe looks authentic in it's ingredients. It's a simple winter family meal. Make sure to remove excess fat from the lamb before cooking then serve the final dish with a side portion of boiled floury potatoes. - 12 Dec 2011
I thought this recipe was good but a little on the bland side for serving guests. I am Ukranian background and shared it with my mother and she loved it. However, we grew up with rather bland dishes and it actually brought back some fond memories of my grandmother's kitchen and cooking for both of us. The only difference is that my mother thought my greatgrandmother added some tomatoes, so possibly I would try adding a small tin of chopped tomatoes the next time I make it. - 11 Aug 2008
