Never heard of goetta? Its' a german Cincinnati thing. Here's a little history if your interested. My mother-in-law (MIL) gave this to me when we were first married & I've made it every winter. Its' not really a summer dish but a hearty winter breakfast dish. And did I mention easy? Love easy.
1 – lb. Of ground chuck
1 – lb. Of ground pork
1 – envelope French Onion soup mix
8 – cups cold water
2 & 1/2 – cups pinhead oatmeal
Put the 8 cups water in a deep pan. Place meat in water & boil. Put in the soup mix & pinhead oatmeal. Bake in oven for 3 hrs. First 1.5 hrs. @ 250 degrees, stirring every 30 mins., with a lid on the pan. Turn off oven. Leave in oven & stir every 30 minutes for another 1.5 hrs. Pour the goetta in loaf pans & refrigerate. After cooled, cut into slices & individually wrap & put in freezer. Your house smells awesome while this is cooking!
