German Goetta

Goetta is of German origin, similar to mush and almost identical to what the Pennsylvania Dutch call scrapple.

  • 1 lb Ground Pork
  • 1 lb Ground Beef
  • 8 cups Water
  • 2-1/2 cups Steel Cut Oats
  • 1 pinch Ground Pepper
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 1 to 4 Bay Leaves *
  • 1 Onion large-sized, sliced*


Step 1

In a large pot with a lid, boil the water. Add salt, pepper and oatmeal. Cover and let cook for two hours, stirring often.

Step 2

Add the meat, onion and bay leaves, mix well. Cook for another hour, stirring often.

Step 3

Remove bay leaf (leaves). Pour into bread pans- size of pan does not matter. Refrigerate overnight.

Step 4

To serve: Slice the goetta and fry it until crispy or just until heated through. Goetta may be served with pancakes and eggs, on sandwiches, or in place of meat at dinner.

Makes about 24 servings.


*Two teaspoons of Savory may be substituted for the onion and bayleaf.
