Kale Stew with Smoked Meat and Sausage – Grünkohleintopf

Kale Stew


  • 1 or 1,5 kg of kale (washed, with the stems and ribs removed)
  • 2 tablespoons Vegetable oil
  • 2 yellow onions (peeled and chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons Rolled Oats
  • 450g smoked pork loin
  • 1 Pinkelwurst or other smoked boiling sausage
  • 2 smoked boiling sausages
  • Pepper
  • Salt
  • Ground Nutmeg



  1. Put some salt and water in a large pot, then bring it to a boil. Put the kale into the pot and let it blanch for 2 minutes. Once the process is done, drain the kale in a colander and chop it coarsely.
  2. Heat some oil in a large saucepan, then add the onions and sauté them until they become translucent.
  3. Once you’ve done the previous step, add the kale and 2 cups of water.
  4. Throw the oats in the pot, stir and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and start simmering for half an hour.
  5. Add 1 more cup of water if necessary. The stew should be very moist.
  6. Add the pork loin and the Pinkelwurst, then cook over low heat for half an hour.
  7. After you’ve done the previous step, add the smoked sausages and maximum 1/2 a cup of water, if necessary.
  8. Cook for 30 more minutes. The smoked sausages should only be added for the last half an hour of the cooking time.
  9. Once everything is done, season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
  10. Serve with boiled potatoes.
