If you have a steamer, it´s a good idea to prepare them in a steamer.

A Dish that almost every german knows.
And here´s how you do it:

half a pound of minced pork
2 tbsp breadcrumbs
salt an pepper
(additional - if you like - some anchovy paste)
1 litre of broth
for the sauce:
3 tbsp butter
2 tbsp flour
mix the minced meat with the thinly sliced onion. add the eggs and the bread/bun which you already soaked in milk for at least ten minutes. add salt an pepper and sardines or anchovies. mix it all together - best not with a machine but with your hands.
form meatballs with your hands and put them into the warm but not boiling broth.
The sauce is based on a roux (sweating flour ;-)).
melt the butter, add the flour and stir it till it´s a paste.
add some of the meatball-broth till the sauce gets the right consitency.
add 3-4 teaspoons of capers and some lemonjuice.
serve the meatballs with the capersauce and garnish with some more capers and parsley if you like....
enjoy, it´s delicious!
one can corned beef (that´s about 3/4 pound of meat)
some potatoes (about 1,5 pound)
3 pickled cucumbers
one midsized red root
salt and pepper
1-2 matjes fillet or bismark herring (pickled fishfilet) per serving
1 egg sunny side up per serving.
first you peel, cut and cook the pototoes
peel and cut two onions and panfry them with a little oil
open the canned corned beef and please don´t damage your fingers while doing that :-) - if you don´t like corned beef or if you can´t open it: you can also take minced meet. it´s going to be a little different, but not really worse...
add the meat and panfry it with the onions.
take the red roots (about one per can of corned beef)
two or three midsized pickeld spiced cucumbers. cut them into little pieces, add them and add some of the liquid from the glass.add salt and pepper and let it all cook for about ten minutes.
mash the potatoes a little if you like or just leave them as little pieces
put the meat/read root paste with potatoes, herring, additional cucumbers and an egg sunny side up
and then enjoy :-)
a good piece of pork - best ist from the shoulder - around 1,5 kg / 3,3 pounds
2-3 cloves of garlic
2 Tbsp carraway seeds
Salt, pepper and some oil to roast the pork
Cut Onions, garlic and carrots into little pieces
Rub the pork with a mixture of cummin, salt and pepper, don´t be too economical with these ingredients
sear the park in hot oil from all sides, add the vegetables
and some beer, about half a cup and put it all into the oven.
Leave it the for two to three hours at around 190 degrees celsius, which is about 375 Fahrenheit.
Serve it, cut in slices, with dumplings an Krautsalat
at least 500 g (one pound) potatoes - half of them cooked, half of them raw
1 egg for every 500 g of potatoes
Potatoes - half of the amount is already cooked, the other half is raw.
You cchop the raw ones into really small pieces - best with a machine.
Then put it into some cotton and press the potatoes in the cotton. The water must get out.
You can also put the potatoes into a sieve and leave them there over night.
Take the cooked potatoes an mash them - it´s good to get rid of your aggressions ;-)
then you mix both and add eggs.
for about every 500 gramms / one pound you will need one egg.
mix it all and add some salt and a pinch of muscat, if you like.
if it is a nice dough, put it into the fridge vor like half an hour to let it set.
Take your hands and form dumplings from the dough. They should almost have the size of a tennis-ball.
Put them into a big pot filled with hot water. The water mustn´t boil. Leave the dumplings in there for about 20-25 minutes.
It makes sense to make a lot more dumplings than you actually need, because it´s quite a lot of work.
What can you do with the ones you don´t need that day?
Either you freeze them or you make Knödlgröstl ;-)
plus the ingridients for the dressing.
don´t be too strict with the amounts. you can find out yourself, how you like it most.
but it´s about
half a cup of sunflower oil
half a cup of sugar
3/4 cup of vinegar ( a light one, no dark one like balsamico)
three or four pinches of salt
half a handful of caraway seeds
slice the cabbage into thin slices
mix the ingredients for the dressing and mix it amongst the cabbage.
Leave the salad alone for at least a couple of hours before you eat it. It gets better, when the aromas have a little time to get into the cabbage.
300 grams Flour
150 grams Curd
6 tabelspoons of sunflower oil
6 tablespoons of milk
half a package of baking powder
about one tablespoon of vanilla sugar
75 grams (2,5 ounces) sugar
Mix it all together and put it into the cake form
Slice the rhubarb into pieces (3-4 centimeters should be okay).
You can take other fruits as well. Plums or apricots for example.
It just won´t be a rhubarb-cake anymore :-)
be sure you have enough fruit to generously cover the complete dough in the form.
Cook the rhubarb and add 3-4 tablespoons of sugar.
That won´t be necessary with other fruits, but the rhubarb needs quite some heat to become nice and tender
cook half a litre of vanilla pudding.
pour the pudding over the dough in the form
then pour the cooked rhubarb over the layer of pudding. Do it carefully because you want to have layers which are a bit separated still.
For the crumble: Take around 100 g of Flour (3,5 ounces)
add 80 grams (2,8 ounces) of sugar and the same amount of warm butter.
mix it all together,
Make crumbles and pour them on top of the cake.
Put the cake into the oven which has around 180 degrees celsius (about 350 fahrenheit)
and leave it in there for around half an hour.
If the cake is golden brown, its done. Enjoy
This really is´nt about amounts, because it is a creative and wonderful way to use the rest of your porkroast and the dumplings.
take some onions - for a pan ful of knödlgröstl two midsize onions are fine, plus two cloves of garlic.
Slice them, pan fry them and then add dumplings and pork rost - both cut into pieces of exactly that size that you want to have on your plate later on.
Add the dumplings first and let them get a little brown, then add the pork.
Add some salt an pepper if you like. Let it fry and stir it from time to time.
Meanwhile you can reheat the rest of the sauce you had with your pork roast. You can add some milk or heavy cream, if you like.
about a dozen medium sized potatoes
2 tbsp. flour
salt and pepper
oil for frying
peel the potatoes and onions. Slice them with a machine into really small sticks.
Put the mixtur into a sieve and filter it either for a couple of hours or press it. You want to get some of the water out of the potatoes.
Add flour, eggs and season generously with salt.
Heat enough fat for frying the fritters.
Take about one tablespoon full of the potato-mass and put it into the hot fat in the pan. Press it till you have like little flat cookies.
Fry them till they are golden from both sides.
You can either serve them with apple purree or with sour cream and smokes salmon.
