Norwegian Lapskaus

With winter well on the way, it is time to warm you all up with this wonderful Norwegian recipe.
Lapskaus is one of THE all time favourites amongst all of the people of Norway. It is warming and filling and tastes soooo good on those cold winter days. A traditional recipe that northern people should not be without.

Lapskaus can be a soup or a stew or something in between, it depends upon how you like it.
(as the actress said to the Bishop).

Norwegian Lapskaus

Norwegian Lapskaus
  • 1 good soup bone (smoked or salted) reindeer, lamb or beef.
  • 4 large potatoes
  • 2 medium sized onions
  • 1 third of a medium swede
  • 3 large carrots
  • 1 stick of celery
  • 1 half of a leek
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 400g of  (lamb, reindeer, or beef.)
  • salt and pepper to taste.
  • 500 ml of water.
  • Chop into 1/4 the potatoes , cut the meat and the other ingredients  into nice bite sized pieces, put them all together in a large pot, along with the (already cooked) bone. Pour in the water, add a little salt and pepper, cover the pot with the lid and bring to the boil.
  • Let the Lapskaus simmer for about 40mins.    
  •    If you wish not to use a bone then just add your favourite stock cube. Also, if you would like it to be more like a soup then simply add more water while it is cooking.
Lapskaus traditionally eaten with Flatbrod.

Lapskaus is highly recommended after a day out skiing

  The delicious Lapskaus is served hot and with a good chunk of warm bread.  Perfect after a day out in the snow.
