Milk can dinner recipes are on websites for WHRO, KWGN and The Global Gourmet. Milk can cooking is a traditional steaming technique from Midwest farms. The recipes typically yield a large amount of food.
WHRO's milk can supper recipe uses a large Dutch oven to cook 2 1/2 pounds of bratwurst, one head of cabbage, 1 1/2 cups of beer and two pounds of small red potatoes. These are layered along with other vegetables and seasonings.
KWGN's recipe calls for preparation in a stainless steel milk can, using low-sodium vegetable or chicken broth instead of beer.
The Global Gourmet's recipe comes from the late 19th century. Ingredients include 25 ears of sweet corn, 50 Polish or German sausages and four heads of green cabbage, cooked over a fire pit.
