    Hi.....I have a kilo and a half of Rinder Falsches Filet from Walmart in Germany, but have no idea how to cook it. I think it is a roast beef, but don't want to ruin it. Anybody from Germany know what this is and how to cook it? Help! Thanks in advance icon_biggrin.gif

    hi there!
    have a look at the diagram to see, where on the cow the "fasches filet" is. You didn't get the "roast beef", but a piece of meat of lower quality and best for slow simmering and roasts. It has a long tendon in it and you can't use it for steaks or the likes. It is a shoulder roast. Use this link to a german site with a diagram to compare the location

    German cuts vary from US cuts and you might have to adjust

    Hi TX...Thanks for your quick response. Sadly, I was so hungry for a good roast beef sandwich, but I'll make due with what I have. I'll slow cook this today, and enjoy it anyway. Is there a website that would tell me which piece of beef and pork to get for cooking? I had a wonderful roast with a friend once, and also have tasted delicious steak quality beef while visiting in Germany. I will go back to Germany in September for one last visit, and would like to bring back the right cuts of meat. Let me know if you know of any such website; the chart you gave me was excellent to see where my filet came from. It truly was a false filet wasn't it? Darn! I was ready for T-bone and rib eye. Living in Holland is fine, but the cuts of meat are tragic. My mouth literally waters for a good, tender cut of meat at times, without having to spend a fortune at a restaurant. icon_sad.gif Again, thanks...you are appreciated. .

    Hi Barbara, slightly off topic - which part of Holland do you live - and if I may ask where in Germany did you find a Wal-mart? I've been serching for 5 years, everytime I think I've found one - it turns out to be something else.

    Agreed - meat is not so very nice here in NL, I normally make a trip to Belgium once or twice a month (I only live 25 minutes from the belgian boarder) and about once every 3 months we will take a day trip to the north of France to do some serious food shopping... thank god for freezers icon_smile.gif

    You must be very excited at the fact of moving home soon - best of luck with your return home icon_smile.gif

    Hi Carla, Yes, I'm excited about moving back, but only because I live in Ijsselmuiden, which is called a "gesloten" dorp. Buitenlanders do not get accepted quickly, if at all. I've been here 8 years and found one Dutch friend, at a 2nd hand store looking at English language books. She has helped me understand Dutch thinking, and it has helped me to feel less inadequate, but I can go days without using my voice. I do love it when I go to the South.part of Holland, very friendly people.
    You can pull up a Walmart store address list on the web. That's what we do, before going across the border. icon_wink.gif There is one in Dortmund; the one we went to was near Trier. We use www.kras.nl for cheap trips out of town, and on this trip we were only 4 km from a Walmart. Yeah! We stocked up and put all of the meat in our wonderful deepfreeze.
    The problem was I didn't do homework before leaving, as to names in German of meats I wanted. But with the help of recipezaar lovely ladies, I have been able to cook the meat and enjoy it. The Rinder filet was absolutely delicious, simmered for 3 hours with onions, on top of the stove. So tender and tasty. So cheap, but so wonderful to eat.
    Are you Dutch, or from another country? If you can't find Walmart's addresses, let me know, and I'll help you find them. icon_smile.gif Barbara

Have a great one and i'm very happy to hear, that the roast turned out well. TZB

    I'm American, from Conecticut - i've lived in Holland just about 5 years now... my husband is dutch. icon_smile.gif

    Do they have great things at the German wal-marts? We normally go to a carrefour in Belgium - very much like a wal-mart... but still not exactly the same. icon_smile.gif

    Do you have other Americans to chat with (in person) or are you alone, also? The Walmart is fun to go into, simply because it brings back memories of Walmarts everywhere in California. All look the same. The prices are comparably cheaper than in other stores, just as in USA, but they are, of course, German products. I was delighted with the quality and prices of the meats. I also found a larger selection of foods than in Holland of the things that I like to cook with. Germany seems to be a head higher in that area of variety than the Dutch merchants. The only way you could really know if it is worth a second trip is to make the first.icon_smile.gif I truly like going there, but would not drive from Ijsselmuiden to a Walmart, just to go to a Walmart. But if in the area, and having a choice of Aldi, Lidl, or Walmart, I would first go to Walmart, then Lidl, then Aldi. (Aldi prices are going up in our area). I found some wonderful fat-free products that I can not find in Holland, in the German Walmart. THE best find was a fat-free, unsweetened condensed milk. I could kick myself, as I bought only 4, not sure what they were. (my German is dreadful). I used one can for iced coffee recipe on recipezaar and it was wonderful. If you go to Walmart, let me know your experience, and what great finds you purchased.
