Day 6: Time to go Dutch

Day 6 of the World Cup of BBQ returns to Europe with this BBQ cook of Dutch Stamppot.

I did a cook from the Netherlands as part of my F1 cooks, which was a Chicken Satay dish. I remember coming across Stamppot and decided to give this one a go.

It’s basically, Dutch Smoked Sausage, Rookworst, served with Mash Potato. Quite a few variations mix different vegetables with the mash and I decided to go with Onion and Kale.

Preparation and the Cook

After lighting the BBQs, I cracked on with making the Mash Potato and prepped the Onion and Kale.

Once the BBQs were ready to cook on, I added the Mash Potato to a small cast-iron skillet and placed on the indirect area of the SNS Kettle. I also added an apple wood-chunk. At the same time I started to cook the Onion and Kale on my gas BBQ, again in a cast iron skillet.

After the mash had been cooking for around 10 minutes, I then added the Rookworst to the direct area on the SNS Kettle and cooked for around 10 minutes, turning over once.

I was a little worried at one point that the mash was taking on too much smoke so I removed the wood chunk. However, I think you would be fine leaving it in there as it was mainly on the outside of the mash that got quite smoky.

I then took all the ingredients off and mixed together the mash with the fried Onion and Kale, before slicing the Rookworst and plating.

The Verdict

I was in 2 minds whether to prepare a little gravy with the dish, but it didn’t need it. The mash was lovely and creamy with some added texture from the Kale and Onion. It had also taken on a nice amount of the smoke but I wish I would have left the wood-chunk on.

The Rookworst was lovely and will be a sausage I look out for in future. Overall, everything tasted great, and this made a perfect midweek winter dinner!

  • 5 Maris Piper Potatoes

  • 2 Garlic Cloves (crushed)
  • Handful Kale (finely sliced)
  • 225 g Rookworst

  • Peel the potatoes and dice them into rough 3cm pieces. Place them in a pan of boiling salted water and boil for 15 minutes.
