Comments on Zuurkoolstamppot - Dutch sauerkraut potato mash

A classic zuurkoolstamppot is a Dutch dish, very easy and made within half an hour. A simple mash, yum! Can be made without bacon.

Gravatar van JJ There's no back in in stamppot zuurkool....it's served with smoked sausage or meatballs.

Gravatar van Ohmydish Hi JJ, zuurkool stamppot isn't traditionally served with smoked sausage or meatballs. I think you mean boerenkool stamppot :)

Gravatar van Ayla Yes, it is. Zuurkool stamppot is usually served with 'rookworst'.
Ohmydish commented at 2019-11-08 17:39:21
Gravatar van Ohmydish It's often served with rookworst, absolutely. But it can also be served with a pork chop or any other piece of meat, where boerenkool is almost always served with rookworst (thats classic). And this recipe is for the mash only and that has to have bacon in it (where the original comment was all about).

Gravatar van Gerri Humphreys We love our zuurkool stamppot with a crisp fried, in butter of cause, pork lion chop. Love a chop with a lot of fat and the skin crisp as well.

Gravatar van Ohmydish Ah yes, totally agree Gerri! :)

Gravatar van Ohmydish Hi Gina, you can order all kinds of Dutch foods from https://www.dutchexpatshop.com/en/unox-beef-smoked-sausage.html . I'm not sure if they ship everything at the moment, because of COVID-19 .

Gravatar van Bernice Tapp In regards to the rookworst, I use farmer's sausage. My favourite brand is "Harvest" double smoke farmers sausage and I can get it at Costco.

Gravatar van Ohmydish I recently had Kielbasa sausages for the first time, they're indeed a great combi with zuurkoolstamp! Have a great evening!

Gravatar van John spijkers Even as a Dutch-born Canadian I don't buy into the you must serve Rookworst with a Stamppot. We had our stamppot mostly with pork chops and sometimes Rookworst for sure. In my opinion one should serve it with the protein of choice and that's what I do. In the last few years I've served a stamppot with English Banger sausages, which is my favourite pork sausage.

Gravatar van Ohmydish Thank you for your comment John, couldn't agree more! Sausages, rookworst, pork chops, meat balls, all is great with a 'zuurkoolstamppot' indeed! Have a great day

Gravatar van Bongabob Hello from an Englishman in Hungary. I have made this a couple of times with Hungarian Fasirt , and also with the local Blood sausage. Both were excellent, thanks for the recipe.

Gravatar van Ohmydish Hello from a Dutchie in France. That sounds amazing, thank you that's lovely to hear! Have a great day :)
Bongabob commented at 2020-07-13 11:27:02
Gravatar van Bongabob Hi Dutchie, i also twisted things one time. Cringe ? when the "Garlic Zuurkoolstamppot" was ready i put it in a Pyrex dish covered in sliced fresh tomatos and covered with cheddar and baked until golden. Also was wonderful. The beauty of the rules of cooking is there are no rules. Keep up the good work. Regards Bonga
Ohmydish commented at 2020-07-13 13:16:45
Gravatar van Ohmydish Totally agree, there are no rules. Only if you want to call something a 'classic dish' there are some standards. With tomatoes and cheese also sounds amazing! Thank you, greetings Véronique

Gravatar van Liesbeth Most of the time we (Dutch) add bayleaf (laurel) amd juniper and sometimes black pepper (the whole pepper seeds) and cook that with the sauerkraut. If you want the sauerkraut to taste a little less Sauer then you can cook it in appeljuice. And a nice piece of rookworst or a meatball with gravy is also a must! If you have leftover zuurkoolstamppot ;-) Bake it in a pan with butter and it tastes even better then the day you made it. We have a custom to put backed leftover zuurkoolstamppot on our bread! Yummie!
Ohmydish commented at 2020-11-21 20:43:24
Gravatar van Ohmydish Hi Liesbeth, you can use 'kruiden zuurkool' but the classic dish is with plain 'zuurkool'. You can vary a lot, of course! And yes, you can serve rookworst, meatballs, pork shops or any other protein to go with this 'stamppot'. I'm Dutch too, but leftover zuurkoolstamppot on our bread, never heard of it. Other kinds of stamppot, yes :-)
