Hog Maw translates to Pig Stomach. Grew up with it and I'm still alive and I love this meal. Good Pennsylvania dish.

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Place the potatoes into a large pan with enough lightly salted water to cover them. Bring to a boil, and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and let cool.

  • Wash the pork stomach thoroughly in cold water. Alternate stuffing the pork stomach with potatoes, sausage, and cabbage, seasoning with a little salt and pepper, until the stomach is full. Try to make even layers, imagining how it will look when it is done and you slice it. Fold closed, and place in a shallow roasting pan. If you have any leftover stuffing ingredients, just place them in the pan around the outside.

  • Roast uncovered for 40 to 50 minutes in the preheated oven, until the sausage is cooked through and the stomach is browned and crispy. When done, slice into 2 inch slices and serve piping hot. You can make gravy out of the drippings if desired, but it is good by itself as a whole meal.

wow never though i'd see this recipe in print. I'm from PA and my family are pa dutch and i grew up on this. We make it a little differently we make it with cabbage sausage onion and carrot (for color) dice all the veggies and mix with the sausage. then stuff the stomache and bake for several hours until a sharp knife slides through easily. (we don't precook any of the veggies) add salt and pepper to taste as well. wonderful food my whole family loves! Read More

I grew up in Maryland on this recipe and just about my favorite meal. However my family does not like the cabbage in it. We prefer a nice cole slaw on the side. It's all a matter of personal taste. Hence only the 3 stars because of the cabbage and I love cabbage just not in this recipe. Read More

I grew up in PA but I'm in the military now. Every time I go home I ask my grandmother to make this for me. As a kid I refused to eat it because of the name (Pig's Stomach) but the melt-in-your-mouth taste makes you ask for a second helping. If you are from the PA Dutch area or adventurous this is a definite keeper. Try it and I'm sure you will love it. We omit the salt when cooking it because it can be added later. Serve with Shoo-fly Pie and you are cooking like the PA Dutch. Thanks for posting this recipe! Read More

My husband and I grew up on this as we are both from York PA. Yummy! Recipe defers from family to family. I omit the cabbage because we never made it that way. I also use half ground beef and half bulk pork sausage and some diced onion. I don't pre-boil the potatoes just mix it all together stuff the maw (pig stomach) sew the opening closed and bake. The maw is no different than a sausage casing but does impart a wonderful flavor to the filling. Read More
