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

Kale with air-dried ham and warm potato waffles

When I was a child I did not like kale. I qualified this statement when I travelled to Shanghai and tasted sea cucumbers. Today I eat kale, but I still don’t like our traditional German way to prepare kale. Too fat, too ugly, too heavy. And then this sausage called „Pinkel“?!? Last autumn I gave kale a second chance. I must admit it’s a very tasty vegetable. It’s only a matter of how to prepare it. Try this.

Simply stew

After all that festive roasts and gourmet buffets we feel like cooking something pretty simple. Outside it’s cold and dark and new year still seems to be a bit unreal and strange. Could there be anything better than a fine warming stew with an almost forgotten vegetable, the turnip?

Ceviche at Cantina Popular

“Oh my god”, the captain said during the last shore leave in Hamburg, honoring the first bite of the Ceviche de Lubina… The CANTINA POPULAR is loud at first glance, it’s tight, it’s busy, lively and colourful. The waiters in all that hustle and bustle are cheerful and attentive. One has arrived – in the middle of South America. And Chef de cuisine Cristián Orellanus says “Bienvenidos”!
