This kohlrabi recipe, aka Kohlrabi mit Schinken, is a great way to use up leftover ham and create a delicious, traditional German meal.

Kohlrabi is a strange looking vegetable and tastes like a combination of radish and broccoli stems. For the meat in this recipe, use leftover ham or cooked sausage (kielbasa would be nice) - just dice it in the same size you dice the kohlrabi.

Kohlrabi recipe with ham

I know this looks like oven-roasted potatoes, but it's not! If you've never tried kohlrabi, you're in for a treat.

Choosing Kohlrabi

When you buy the kohlrabi, choose small young ones. These will have the best flavor. Kohlrabi belongs to the cabbage family and it's flavor can be quite intense.

You can choose either the green or the purple variety. Both can be eaten raw. Peeled and sliced, kohlrabi makes a great addition to a salad tray that has people coming back for more and not knowing what they are eating - they only know it tastes great, similar to broccoli stems.

Oma Says:

If you look at the quantities, you'll see that ½ lb of meat for 4 servings really isn't a meat dish. The meat just really makes the kohlrabi taste amazing. However the egg yolks and the whipping cream (!) makes the protein count quite high (as well as the calorie count)! But, OH, this does taste great!

If you wanted, you could always increase the amount of meat to make it more satisfying as a meat/veggie dish. It really all depends on what you want to serve with it. 

Love it with noodles and a salad on the side. A great luncheon dish, to be sure!
