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

Cavatelli alle Vongole – pasta with clams

Recently my dearest Captain was on shore leave in Molfetta/Italy together with Leonardo. They had pasta with clams and he raved about this dish in our evening phone call. There, I decided to make my try and prepare it at home one day. Luckily, Leonardo gave him a packet of original south Italian Cavatelli pasta to take home – they are said to be the best pasta ever with clams.

Women’s power and the color lilac

I would describe myself as a wine lover, but definitely not as wine connoisseurs. I know if I like the taste of a wine or not. And, Yes, I confess that the label of a bottle for me is not quite irrelevant. Therefore, maybe my favorite color lilac was somewhat of a guide when I placed my first wine order in Nierstein [also known as Riesling city at the banks of river Rhine]. Because Lisa likes lilac. Now, the shooting star of the young German wine makers has promised to give her personal wine recommendations for selected Captain’s Dinner menus. And this is the way it happened.
