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.

From G.D.:
"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.

For anyone who wants (like me) to take a short cut on this.... don't. :::laughing::: I thought to myself, "Four HOURS? She can't really mean four HOURS!" This morning, I dumped it out of the loaf pan onto the counter and it immediately covered the counter! So... I'm doing it again, and although I don't have a crock pot, I'll cook it the full time. By the way, I put a couple of spoons of the stuff in a pan with an egg and scrambled it all together for a great breakfast burrito! Pretty filling and good.
The time I tried this recipe, I just cooked it on the stove like I would long cooking oatmeal and it worked fine. I cooked the meat and onions in a skillet first, and then added it to the cooked oatmeal, and allowed it to simmer for a short time longer to blend all the flavors. You might try cutting down on the water and adding more if it gets too thick. Mine was pretty thick, and it gets thicker as it cools.
Hi Everyone,
I just wanted to bring this oatmeal recipe up. It is not for phase 1, but I am 7 months into the program now and felt I would give it a try. This is really good. I did not get any reaction to the oatmeal. I used turkey sausage instead of pork. I don't do pork. I fried the slices in ghee till brown and crispy, and put a little allowed vanilla extract on them. I used just regular organic oats, but will try the kind suggested in the orginal recipe next. I am a big breakfast person. Big Grin
thanks for posting this years ago Linda.
