Interesting. The very same dish with pork often substituted for beef / corned beef / salted beef is classic for Irish or Russian cuisine, with only distinction that both may include cabbage. Irish and Russian potato-meat-onion(-cabbage) meals were the meals of the poor. So I'm wondering whether Swedish classic is also originates from the need to provide nutrition to a big family with limited access to resources?http://katemiddlesex.blogspot.com/
Kate - definitely. It originates from peasant food, which I imagine is similar in most European countries. It was definitely a dish for the poor, and something to be eaten in the winter when there weren't any fresh vegetables.
Whats the Swedish word for sliced salt pork? Is it skivad fläsk? Is this different from regular pork belly?
Three-Cookies, in the stores it will be labeled as "stekfläsk" (which just means "frying pork") It is salted, sliced, pork belly, as far as I can tell.
Oj detta är ju absolut en klassiker, kul när du tar svensk husman till england :DHihi ja jag hoppas också det blir barnvagnsvänligt där annars får man ju köpa med sig och fika hemma istället, funkar utmärkt med ju :D
