    My DH lived in Germany for about 6 years in the 1980's. He wants me to find a recipe for what he is calling "Kraut Butter".
    He said that when you ordered a steak in a German restaurant, Kraut Butter was served on the side. Any ideas? I would appreciate any help or suggestions on this! Thanks, Trace

    It is salted butter with chopped fresh herbs mixed into it.


    There is a recipe for it here:

    Yes, the recipe is great

    Often finely chopped onions are added. And in "Kräuterbutter" you will find often salt. Just salt to your taste.

    One of the most prominent brands is Meggle. Their classic Kräuterbutter (herbed butter) contains:
    onions (very finely chopped)
    parsley (9% of ingredients, main herb used)
    carrots (very finely chopped)
    leek
    salt
    cellery leaves
    lemon juice
    other herbs (not listed)
    garlic

    In the cited recipe basil and oregano give a more mediterranean touch.

    When we make our herbed butter, we start and taste after a first round and then add this or that.

    Thanks so much you guys! He misses it very much, but he had no idea of what was in it, to tell me how to make it. I'm glad I asked here! He could only say that he thought it had horseradish in it ! Boy was he off! icon_eek.gif icon_wink.gif
    Danke!

    Hihi,

    I think he means Kräuter Butter. Kraut Butter is butter made with Germans lol.
    It is basically just herb butter. I like to add roasted garlic to it too.

    Thanks so much for the suggestion TJW!! I've made some by one of the above recipes,(and DH and I love it!) but I am going to try it again with your suggestion and add roasted garlic! I love it so much that I will roast whole "pods" of it and eat most all of it myself!!SmileyCentral.com
    icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif Any time that I deep-fry anything in oil, I will throw in several cloves of garlic,and some thickly- sliced onion, to flavor the oil, and to eat it! It makes for very tasty French Fries!!

    Hihi, I am a garlic junky too. I usually roast a whole head once a week, and keep it in the fridge for whatever recipe may call for it, or whatever whim inspires me to just smear a clove or two on a piece of toast with french cheese lol.

    I have a bunch of German cookbooks. They are a 25 volume set that were given to a friends mother when she got married shortly after World War II. The recipe on the link with the first response matches the translation I did a long time ago. I have used made that version several times for friends as the steak sauce.

    It is a tedious task especially the amount of time required to slowly whip all the lemon juice into the butter so there are no longer any droplets but it is at least by my taste EXTREMELY delicious and my guests have always been pleasantly shocked by it.

    But the others are right. Kreuter butter (alternate spelling when one does not have an umlaut), does just mean herbal butter and there are other versions. That version, I used to find in restaurants in around Stuttgart and Munich.
