    Is there a recipe ,that your mother ,grand-mother or other relative passed down to you, and you make it often? Do your friends request it? How about sharing it here?
    At Christmas time I am always asked to make either :
    Sauerbraten or
    Rinds/Beef Rouladen
    I'll be happy to share the recipes if anyone is interested, but I know there are many here on Zaar already.

    Great that you ask! Both grandmas were always puttering around in the kitchen making something. They're both gone now but I am lucky to have asked for a couple of things that they wrote down for me plus they were active in the lutheran church and donated alot of their recipes to the cookbooks. Whether or not they are true German or adapted through the years, they were always a treat to get to eat!
    One always made Molasses cookies by the 5gallon bucketsful!! When we started on the last bucket you definitely had to dunk them in coffee by then! The white bread recipe is a charm...her directions make you smile when you read them.
    I've posted a few of the recipes already but there are a bunch more floating around in my books and recipe card files!

    My other half is German and has taught me how to make Berlin Potato Soup (with fresh marjoram), Koenigsberger Klopse (beef-pork meatballs in tangy caper sauce) and Kartoffeln Knoedel (potato dumplings with semolina).

    I also love the simple but effective Karotten Meeretich (carrots boiled in broth, then mashed with radish puree) which is a healthier, tastier alternative to mashed potato. This was found in a recipe book by German chef Alfons Schubeck.

    Cannot say I make it often...maybe once a year.
    My Grandmother was German and made a dish called Eintoph (not sure about the spelling). I had sliced green beans, potatoes, white beans. Its between a soup and a stew..very filling. I don't have a proper recipe for it but make something like it..and when I do make it it takes me back to my childhood

    Eintopf simply means One Pot! icon_biggrin.gif Just about every Mother or Grand-mother has a family favorite, that was an "Eintopf" with or without meat, but it was the Main Dish cooked all in One! My mother had one just like yours, she would add Mutton. It was the one dish I literaly ran from! I Could not stand the smell of it. I cann't eat even Lamb to this day. icon_biggrin.gif

    My other half is German too. He does most of the German cooking and feed him the various cuisines I have picked up over time from housemates. He makes good Schweinerouladen (pork roulade) that is filled with bacon, crème fraîche and wine sauerkraut. He makes a pretty good Schweinebraten as well. From time to time, he makes Zweibelkuchen, which is good but I can't eat too often because it is quite rich. One of my favourites, which even surprises my husband, is Blaue Zipfel, which is Nürnberger Bratwurst cooked in vinegar, white wine, onions, soup vegetables and spices. I like Mettbrötchen (high quality raw ground pork, lightly salted on bread rolls, usually with onions) as well, but I don't really consider that cooking and would be afraid to eat it outside of Germany.

    I love the raw pork as well. We called it Hackepeter. Have never eaten it in the States, though. (Most people are totally grossed out when I even mention it).On a Broetchen or good rhye bread.Awsome!! I only recall Salt, Pepper and diced onions in it too.. I always liked it as much as Steak Tartar.
    I am not familiar with The Pork Rouladen your husband makes. Could you post a recipe? It sounds delicous.

    I've posted the recipe here. Bierkutscher Rouladen It is pretty heavy, usually I can only manage one of them, but they reheat well or, you could always cut down on the recipe.

    Yeah, I wasn't too sure about Mett the first time it was give to me, but we were at my husband's grandmothers, and I couldn't really not eat when she gave it to me. I made my parents eat when there were here last time. My mom liked it a lot, and my dad didn't really like it. Well, he had a small bite that was mostly bread roll so I don't know that he really ate any of the Mett! I think that Mett is called something else in other parts of Germany. I remember when we went to a Kölsch bar in Berlin (we were with a group, I don't normally go to restaurants that are like the ones not far from here when I am elsewhere icon_smile.gif ), that they had some written next to it explain what it was, maybe it was Hackepeter.

    DH doesn't like my favourite German foods icon_evil.gif

    Thanks for posting the Bierkutscher Rouladen Recipe. It sounds fantastic!! I have printed it off.
    I have never seen "Malzbier" here in the US, so I'm not sure yet what I can use in it's place, I'm sure something will come to me. One of our daughters was a Bartender, during her college years, in a bar in Milwaukee that had over 100 Beers. She'll know of something. I just bought pork Tenderloin! I also have Great German Weinkraut on hand. Thanks again.

    I hope that you like it and can find some replacement for the Malzbier. My parents liked it when we have given it to them before so if you find something that seems to work, tell me how it goes and I can pass it on to my parents. icon_smile.gif

    My German mom used to cook sliced or diced kohlrabi on top of the stove. It was so delicious. Unfortunately, I didn't get the recipe and yesterday I found kohlrabi at the store for the first time. Anybody have any ideas? I looked at the recipes listed on Zaar and nothing sounded familiar.
