Meat patties with gravy and creamed cabbage

Description
(Serves 4)
This dish is often known as “mother’s meat patties”. It used to be a point of pride for newly marred women to be able to make meat patties that were as good as mother made. Today young couples presumably share the cooking, but meat patties have lost none of their popularity.

Ingredients
Meat patties

500 g minced beef (1 lb beef round or chuck)

1 tsp salt

1 tsp freshly ground pepper

1 tsp ground ginger

1 tbsp potato flour

2.5 dl water

1 egg

Fat for frying (I fried mine in Coconut oil – a lot better for you & great for using w/ high heat)


Creamed cabbage
Approx. 1/2 kg garden cabbage (I used half of a medium cabbage)

Sauce:

2 tbsp butter

4 tbsp flour

4 dl milk (use heavy whipping cream or whole milk)

1/2 tsp nutmeg

Salt


Gravy

2 ½ tbsp butter

2 ½ tbsp flour

5 dl meat juices or stock (use beef stock if you don’t have enough meat juices from frying the patties)

Instructions

Meat patties

Mix the minced beef with the spices and potato flour, and add the water a little at a time. Stir in the lightly beaten egg. Shape fairly large patties and brown them on both sides. Place the meat

Patties in the gravy and let them simmer for 5- 10 minutes before serving.

Creamed cabbage

Cut the cabbage into small pieces of and cook for approx. 30 minutes in lightly salted water.

Melt the butter in a saucepan and stir in the flour.

Add the milk and bring to a boil, stirring all the time.

Let the sauce cook for 8 - 10 minutes.

Add the cooked cabbage, bring to a boil and add salt and nutmeg to taste.

Gravy

Brown the flour and butter well in a cast-iron pan (I used my regular big fry pan) over low heat. Stir constantly. Bring the meat juices or stock to the boil. Add to the browned mixture of butter and flour, and beat until smooth. Let the sauce cook for about 10 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. A touch of cream makes a good addition, but this is optional.

Notes

RECIPE FROM THE NORWEGIAN INFORMATION CENTRE FOR MEAT AND MEAT PRODUCTS

DON’T FORGET – lingonberries are a great with this dish and boiled potato’s (sprinkle with parsley).

* I doubled the recipe for the meat patties instead 1 lb I used 2 lbs and it came out great
