Easy Goetta Recipe
8 cups water
2 1/2 cups pinhead oats
1/8 cup dried onions
1 lb. Tennessee Pride Sausage (original)
1 lb. ground sirloin
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp salt
Put all ingredients into Dutch Oven. The best way I’ve found to break up the meat is to use your well-washed hands to break the meat up after adding to the water in the pot before turning on the stove. This will break up the meat perfectly.
Place pot on medium high heat and bring to a boil, stirring often.
Turn heat down to simmer and cook with no lid, stirring often for 50 minutes or so, until all liquid is absorbed.
Pour into 13″ x 9″ pan and place in a refrigerator for 2-3 hours to chill completely.
Remove from refrigerator and slice goetta in to 1/2 inch slices.
Coat a large skillet with non-stick spray and heat over medium high heat or use an electric skillet. Fry goetta slices until golden brown and delicious.
You can freeze some of the goetta for later, but we eat all of it within 2 days (3 people). I make goetta hoagies, goetta pizzas and of course, goetta and eggs.
