Whether this is a Danish dish or not is up to you to decide. This is actually a dish I grew up eating many times in my youth.

The difference, and what makes it Danish is that this is cooked using butter and not oil or shortening. The other difference is the spices used, Rosemary, Thyme and Bay leaf gives this a distinct flavor all its own.

This is why it should not be considered the same as American Fries or American hash.

I remember growing up and realizing the first time that my talented Mom was using leftovers to make those tummy warming stews, but she actually made a huge pot of soup first.

However, I take her ideas and turn this leftover pork into a soup that will be eaten gone in the first night. Admittedly, making this recipe into a Pork Stew immediately would not be such a bad idea either.

Loaded with pork, and assorted vegetables, this reminds me of Mom’s cooking.
