Delicate and juicy - beef

May 10th, 2018 | main dishes

Tafelspitz [boiled fillet] – Austrian cuisine’s classic. Needs a bit of time, but requires little work. And best of all, the beef stays super-juicy as it is cooked in broth. Together with asparagus or the Frankfurt Green Sauce a real Sunday roast.

Delicate and juicy - beef

The cap of rump you use for this recipe is a high-quality part of the tail of beef, which is covered on one side with a layer of fatty tissue. These should not be removed under any circumstances! Important in preparation: Put the meat in boiling water to close the pores. In case you put it in cold water, the meat leaches and loses its aroma.

I prefer boiled fillet with green sauce or horseradish sauce. Also for guests, because you can prepare the meat without problems the day before and then warm in the broth again.

Great side effect: You have at the same time a nice meat broth, which you can freeze until further use. Two birds with one stone, so to speak

Jackfruit curry with pineapple

Curry dishes, especially the traditional sailor’s curry, are not to be left out of our diet. Mostly a curry is cooked on chicken. Here I introduce a vegetarian alternative – for those who want to reduce their meat consumption. Ginger, garlic, poppy seed, cumin, turmeric, coconut milk and jackfruit. Pretty exotic, right?

The secret of 7 herbs

One can disagree about many things or even argue – but not about the seven herbs of the original Frankfurt Grüne Sauce [green sauce]. Even my great-grandmother in the Forest of Odes kept her recipe and looked after and nurtured the seven herbs in her garden. The recipe is passed on from generation to generation, re-written, varied. And which herbs are they?
