Sauerkraut & Rotkohl Ham

May 3, 2011

Ideal for a winter weekend meal, Ham with Sauerkraut & Rotkohl will provide the necessary nutrients to get you ready for that Monday.  A combination of sweet red cabbage, sour kraut and rich and salty ham, the taste is unsurmountable!  Red cabbage is full of vitamins containing vitamin C and vitamin K but also potassium and folate (vitamin B9).  It also contains a pigment called anthocyanin which is a subclass of flavonoids indirectly associated with anti-oxidant properties.  Flavonoids are said to help prevent allergies, inflammatory diseases and cancer even though scientists have not yet determined whether oxidative stress due to low antioxidant levels is the cause or effect of diseases that are linked to antioxidants.


  • 300g ham
  • 250g sauerkraut
  • 250g red cabbage
  • 5 large potatoes
  • cumin

Cook both kinds of cabbage in a pan with some oil on high heat until cabbage strands start to brown.  In a different pot, boil peeled and cut potatoes until semi-soft.  Add potatoes to cabbage mix and transfer to an oven-proof dish.  Place ham on top and sprinkle with ground cumin, if desired.  Bake for 20 mins at 400F/200C.  Serve with horseradish sauce or mustard poured on ham in the winter season or sprinkled parsley, if preparing it in the summer.
