    This is a good recipe for the meat cakes. In most of Germany we call them "Frikadellen", in Berlin they are called "Buletten" and in Bavaria" Fleischkuechle" hence the name meat cakes.The beef stock is new to me but will sure try next time I cook them. I add a good spicy mustard ( 1-2 teaspoon), that is the way my Mom and Oma made them. I am german too. Born and raised there.Lecker! ( tasty)You will also find them for sale in german pubs just like pickels here in the U.S. Arranged on a cakestand( not too tasty though cause they add less meat but more bread, cheaper that way)I guess the idea is to soake up the alkohol in once stomach :)

    These turned out much better than I thought. While I was making them I had a feeling they wouldn't have enough flavor, but I was certainly wrong. I'm glad I stuck with the recipe as is, I now have another use for ground meat(which is always in my freezer).
