Today is "Fårikål" day in Norway

Source: "Norwegian Food: Do they really eat this?"

Fårikål, literally mutton-in-cabbage, is an unusually simple stew.

It is made by layering lamb and cabbage
in a pot with salt, peppercorns, and water.

You let it boil for a couple of hours until the meat is tender. The dish is served with boiled potatoes,
beer and aquavit.

It is a classic autumn dish that Norwegians love.

On the last Thursday of September it is Fårikålens dag (Fårikål day) and fårikål is served in many restaurants across the country!
