This recipe was found on Familie Journal 

Serves 2-3

400 g pork tenderloin
2 tbsp EVOO
Salt and pepper
1 small bundle parsley
35 g hazelnuts
1 cm fresh horseradish

50 g fresh spinach
1 head little gem lettuce
1/4 head spring cabbage
Salt and pepper
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
2 tbsp EVOO
Bit of sugar

Carrot Tart:
5 carrots
1 shallot
10 g butter
1 tbsp EVOO
1 tbsp cider vinegar
Salt and pepper
2 sheets puff pastry, thawed
100 g feta cheese
1 lemon
1/2 bundle broad-leaf parsley
50 g walnuts


Make the pork tenderloin:
Rub the tenderloin with oil, salt, and pepper. Brown in a warm pan for 2 minutes on each side. Rinse the parsley and chop it. Roughly chop the hazelnuts. Peel and finely grate the horseradish. Blend parsley, nuts, and horseradish with the rest of the oil; season with salt and pepper. Place half of the mixture on a sheet of aluminium foil and place the tenderloin atop. Place the rest of the parsley blend atop the tenderloin and cover with another sheet of foil. Cook the tenderloin in the oven at 200 C for 35 minutes.

Make the salad:
Rinse the spinach and lettuce. Let the spinach drip dry and pluck the lettuce into small pieces. Cut up the cabbage very finely. Blend salt, pepper, vinegar, oil, and sugar together and toss the spinach, cabbage, and lettuce in the dressing.

Make the carrot tart:
Wash the carrots and split them lengthwise. Cut the shallot into wedges. Heat up a small pan with oil and butter. Place the carrots and shallot in and cook for 2 minutes. Add honey and cider vinegar and let it caramelize a bit. Turn the heat off after 2 minutes; add salt and pepper. Place the puff pastry beside each other and press them together well. Place the pastry over the pan, seal well, and trim any excess dough off. Place the pan in the oven for 15 minutes, or until the pastry is golden (it’s done at the same temperature as the tenderloin and can even go into the oven with the tenderloin.) Let sit for 2 minutes, and turn out onto a plate. Sprinkle feta atop, as well as grated lemon rind, chopped parsley, and chopped toasted walnuts.

Wild Game Pot Pie (Indbagt Vildtgryde)

Wild Game Pot Pie



This recipe was found on Mad og Bolig

Serves 10-12

3 kg mixed wild game (f. ex. 1 kg venison, 1 kg wild boar, 500g wild duck or pheasant, 500 g rabbit)
1 1/2 kg yellow onions
1 1/2 kg potatoes
Salt and pepper
Lemon thyme, rosemary, bay leaves, and allspice

The remains from the meat
Oil or butter for frying
2 onions
3 cloves garlic
1 carrot
1 parsnip
2 1/2 L water
Bay leaves

500 g butter
1 kg flour
3 tsp salt
3 dl lukewarm water
1 dl milk for brushing


Remove skin, fat, and bones from the meat. Reserve them for the bouillon. Cut the meat in 2 x 2 cm dice.

Peel the onions and chop them into 1 x 1 cm pieces. Peel the potatoes and cut them in 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 cm dice. Blend the meat, onion, and potatoes in a bowl. Sprinkle well with salt and pepper. Add the spices.

Heat up the oil in a pot and add the remains from the meat along with chopped onion, garlic, carrot, and parsnip. Fry until everything is cooked through and add 2 1/2 L water. Add thyme and bay leaves to one’s own taste and let boil.

Cut the butter into 1 x 1 cm dice. Blend flour and salt in a large bowl and cut in the butter until the mixture is grainy. Pour the water into the bowl and collect the dough into a ball. Let it rest for a few minutes. Roll the dough out, so it’s large enough to cover the entire pot and is about 1 cm thick. Cover the bottom and sides of the pot with dough, but remember to take a bit of dough and reserve it for the top crust. Pour the meat mixture into the crust. Cover the meat mixture with a top crust and slice a few holes in the crust with a sharp knife. One of them should be a bit larger than the other holes. Strain the bouillon and pour it into the crust through the larger slit. The bouillon should nearly fill the pot up. Brush the crust with milk.

Place the pot’s lid on and bake for 10 hours at 120 C. Check occasionally and add more bouillon, if it seems to be necessary. Serve the dish with bread and a good salad.

This recipe requires a large, 12-15 L pot that can handle being in the oven.
