Wash Brussels sprouts, remove outer leaves, cut away the stalk a little and score cross- wise. Peel, wash and dice the potatoes (approx. 1.5 x 1.5 cm). Peel, clean and slice the carrots.
Peel the onions, dice finely. Cut the raw smoked pork chops into small pieces (approx. 1.5 x 1.5 cm).
Heat the rapeseed oil in a large saucepan, sauté the onion cubes for 2-3 minutes over a medium heat until translucent. Add the Kassler cubes and fry briefly. Then add the Brussels sprouts and the chopped vegetables and roast for 1 minute. Deglaze with broth. Let the stew simmer over a low heat for about 20 minutes, until the vegetables are nice and soft.
