Sous Vide Goetta! Its whats for breakfast!

Ok, so Goetta does not make for a particularly appetizing picture, but I think everyone will like the post for its content anyway.

For those that are not familiar with Goetta, it is a German American breakfast meat made with ground pork and steel cut oats that is very local to the greater Cincinnati / Newport area. More about Goetta at Wikipedia.

Goetta is typically made in a pot on the stove, or in a crock pot overnight. I wanted to see if I could make it via the Sous Vide method.


  • 1lb ground pork
  • 1/2c steel cut oats
  • 1c chicken broth
  • 1/2c dried slivered onions
  • 1/4c dried minced garlic
  • 1tbs ground white pepper
  • 1tsp ground black pepper
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1tsp salt
  • 1/2tsp msg

Sous vide time and temp:

165 degrees for 24hrs

I started with all of my ingredients vacuum sealed in a bag

I mixed everything in the bag by shaking, and mushing everything all around until homogenous.

I then processed via Sous Vide

I removed the bay leaves and transferred to a more appropriately sized bag in an attempt to maintain a “sausage” shape, and chilled overnight.

I tried to make patty shapes to begin, by slicing pieces off of the cooled “sausage”

But after I attempted to flip the “patties”, it was clear that they were not going to hold their shape, so I just muched them all into one big patty.

So here we have the finished “patty”. After it cools off a little bit, it gets a crisp on the surface.

You can eat the goetta as is, serve with eggs, or whatever you like. I chose to make Goetta, steak, and egg with dill mayo sandwiches!
