    A friend of mine told me about a great recipe including Pork Chops and mustard with some special spice that he said was just awesome. Has anyone heard of a dish call 'Schweken"?
    This is what he told me it was called so I have no idea if its spelled correctly or if it is indeed its name. Thank you for considering this question.

    Sorry, I can't say it rings a bell and the word doesn't really mean anything. If you say it with an American accent though it does sound similar to 'Schweinchen', which means piglet, but that doesn't really get me much further. Or the way you spelt it in the subject line (which is different from the actual message) it means 'to sway' or 'to swivel', but I still don't know any pork recipe with that in the title.

    Do you know what region of Germany your friend visited and what it was served with? icon_smile.gif

    Thank you for your reply. I am trying to get a hold of him and get some more specifics. I have been put in charge of an Octoberfest feast for @ 50 people and am looking for a good recipe that eveyone will like. Thank you, Rex

    Something quite typical for the real Octoberfest would be Schweinshaxe with Sauerkraut (and knoedel or mashed poatoes). Scheinehaxe is like a special ham hock, I've translated the recipe for somebody else from German website in this thread before. I'll post it properly today and then I'll let youy know the recipe link.

    Something else that you'll always be served are soft prezels, to go with your beer. There is another Bavarian speciality, but I don't know if you could get hold of it and I have never tried it, so I don't know what it's like, it's called Weisswurst.

    Actually I just saw you can buy it online in the US at Amazon.

    And here is a pic of a Scheinshaxe, to give you an idea.......

    When are you holding this feast? I am going to the original Munich Oktoberfest tonight so I will take lots of pictures for you of the food served icon_smile.gif

    There is a cafe near where I am staying in Munich, by the way, that serves an Oktoberfest breakfast. It is basically just weisswurst (in North America they are known as Okoberfest sausage and are a favourite of mine) and beer ... for breakfast!!

    Thanks! I have been a few times now and always enjoy it. This time was with my uncle who is not really into beer drinking but we did have a nice meal and went on the roller coaster icon_lol.gif

    I have some pictures for you but may not get them online for some time as we have just moved house and I do not think we have internet at home yet (unless that has changed while I have been away). I should have them up next Tuesday, when I return to work, but that may be too late for you icon_cry.gif

    Anyway, anything sausage based should be good. If I were you I would do maybe bratwurst and Oktoberfest sausage, sauerkraut, a good German potato salad and maybe a pork roast. Yum!!!

    Glad you had much fun. I would like to see the pics if you get a chance. I am planning on sausage and Kraut. A good pork roast recipe is probably the way to go. I'm sure i can find a few million roast recipes icon_lol.gif Thanks for you help!

    At the Oktoberfest here they always serve Bratwurst, Sauerkaraut and German Potato Salad. Lots of beer and also Desserts. They order their Bratwurt directly from Usingers in Milwaukee. But we can now also buy it in the stores here. JOHNSONVILLE makes the best. Ingrid/ Koechin
    P.S.
    The Bratwurst are simmered in beer with lots of onion and brown sugar first and then placed on the grill. When they are brown all over they place them back in the beer which is in large pans at the back of the grills to keep them warm, and then send them on large platters to the serving line as needed. You have your choice of relish , onions, and cooked Sauerkraut to place on top. They are in a bun, of course. icon_smile.gif
