    On the recipe that I found in my grandmothers recipe box, it says every restaurant in Vienna serves Tafelspitz.

      So simple & so delicious! The sauce is really nice too but I found these proportions a bit off. I used more than 1/2c olive oil (maybe I squeezed my bread crumbs too much?), i wished I had used more chives (used 1/4c as it was) and I used probably 1TB vinegar before I noticed it. I served the whole thing over noodles & everyone loved it! Made for ZWT4!
