For the Goetta:

  • 1 1/2 quarts water
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 1/2 cups steel cut oats
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground pork sausage
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil

For the dip:

  • 1 8 ounce can Ro-Tel, drained with 1/4 cup juice reserved
  • 1 8 ounce cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup cheese, shredded


To prepare the Goetta:

  1. In a slow cooker set to high, bring the water, salt and pepper to a boil. Stir in the steel cut oats.
  2. Cover, and cook 90 minutes.
  3. In a large bowl, blend ground beef, ground pork sausage and onion. Stir the beef-pork mixture into the oat mixture. Reduce heat to low.
  4. Cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, at least 3 hours.
  5. Transfer mixture to a baking pan. Cool until solidified.
  6. Turn the mixture out onto wax paper. Chill in the refrigerator until firm, about 1 hour.
  7. In a heavy skillet over medium-high heat, heat the oil until shimmering. Working in batches, cook the mixture until each batch is evenly brown.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Mix together 2 1/2 cups cooked Goetta sausage, cream cheese, Ro-Tel and reserved juice.
  3. Lightly grease an 8×8 baking dish.
  4. Place the mixture in the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the Cheddar cheese on top.
  5. Bake the mixture until cooked through and bubbling, about 20 minutes.
