Danes love their pork, enjoying it in all kinds a ways, from sausage and rullepølse, to patés and chops, and of course, to roasts. The most famous Danish roast is known as flæskesteg. Most common at Christmas time, a nice flæskesteg is often served with red cabbage and candied potatoes, which eventually results in next-day leftovers which are ideal on buttered Danish rye bread as smørrebrød.
