The following is a recipe submitted by one of our customers.
TLC says: If you can find unsweetened pork, and eating it agrees with you, the only challenge with this recipe would be the food combining of the meat and the grain. This combo is best for those with strong digestion.
"I play quite a bit of competitive tennis,
so on days when I know my body's energy demands are going to be high, I eat
this. It is actually a real recipe that happens to be friendly to the
anti-candida diet. "Goetta" (pronounced "getta") is a long time Cincinnati
breakfast specialty (I grew up in Cincinnati). It can be made not using a
crock pot, but it is so simple this way it's the only way I make it. I use
all natural and organic ingredients."
5 c. water
2 1/2 c. steel-cut (also known as pinhead) oatmeal
1 T. salt
pinch of pepper
1 lg. onion, chopped fine
1 lb. ground pork
1 lb. ground beef
3-4 bay leaves
Put the water, oatmeal, salt & pepper in the crock-pot. Mix well and let
cook, covered, 1 1/2 hr., on high setting. Then add onion, pork and beef
(both crumbled); mix very well; add bay leaves. Let cook for another 3-4 hr.
on low; stir once or twice throughout cooking time. At end, you may remove
the cover and let cook for another 1/2 hr. if the mixture seems like it needs
to thicken (I don't find a need to do this). Line 2 bread pans with aluminum
foil and put the cooked goetta in the pans (remove the bay leaves). Chill
until firm. When ready to eat, slice the loaf of goetta int 1/2" slices and
heat in a pan with a pat of butter. Heat on each side until brown. This is
delicious with eggs as well.
Goetta keeps very well in the refrigerator or the freezer. I have wrapped
individual slices for freezing, then use as needed after thawing (just a bit)
in the microwave.
A loaf sliced into 10 servings yields portions that have 13.5 grams of
carbohydrate each. If I'm playing tennis, I'll have 2 slices; otherwise one
slice with one egg is a very filling and satisfying breakfast or lunch.
