Denmark’s Official National Food: Crispy Pork with Parsley Sauce

Billedresultat for stegt flæsk med persillesovs

In 2014, for the first time, Danes voted on their national dish. Over 60,000 people took part in the vote and the winning dish, a classic pork recipe called ‘Stegt flæsk med persillesovs’, was no surprise!

Stegt flæsk med persillesovs, or crispy pork with parsley sauce, is Denmark’s official national food. It’s a very old dish that has won the hearts, and tummies, of Danes for centuries! In the past, the pork was fried, hence the old name ‘fried pork’ (stegt flæsk) which the dish retains today. It’s now much more common to cook the pork in the oven.

      Oh, yes! The voters didn’t think of including the muslims, how wonderful is that. 🙂
      I am sure other traditional pork dishes was getting a lot of the remaining votes, like flæskesteg and frikadeller.

    Excellent, that looks delicious by the way. makes me wonder what the voted German National dish is considering the very different Sociopolitical narrative. Actually I don’t want to imagine “kebab” I want to think of Beef Rouladen the cure to foreign invasion one small step at a time is curing the subtle replacement program via popular culture. German heritage foods Deutsch Kochkunste!

      I don’t know much about german “cuisine”. I would properly vote for some kind of Schnitzel like Schnitzel Holstein, Wiener Schnitzel or most likely Schinken Schnitzel.
      I think, there might be less unity, because Germans in North might eat more like Danes and Germans in South eat more like their Swiss and Austrian neighbors etc.
