Sauerbraten of deer with dark beer
December 18th, 2018 | main dishes
A venison roast prepared as Sauerbraten is a tasteful experience. The sauce is made with dark, strong beer. This not only gives the whole roast a nice color, but also malty, very strong aromas. Lucky the one who has a good connection to a forester…
There are places that I immediately associate with a smell or the taste of a dish. And conversely, there are scents that throw me back to a specific place immediately. So I smell freshly grilled sardines at the thought of Portimao. The smell of pastry freshly baked in lard will forever be associated with the Churros y Chocolate in the Canaries. My hometown of Cuxhaven, on the other hand, is indelibly branded into my memory with its bitter, salty and sometimes slightly musty aroma of the mudflat. And of course with the scence of fish and herring rolls on the beach.
The subtle, sour smell of Sauerbraten on the other hand reminds me of birthdays. That was the dish that I asked my mother for as a teenager for my birthdays. She prepared the Sauerbraten with beef at that time. I also like to use deer. The good wire to the forester just pays off…
Sauerbraten from deer with dark beer
(4 portions – Attention: Marinating time 2 days! – Preheat oven to 200° C)
And this is how the wife of the captain does it
If I use frozen venison, I’ll let it thaw in the refrigerator in this marinade. This extends the marinating time to 3 days. The meat thaws particularly gently this way.

To begin with, I honestly thought what the Venetian’s hype about those “sandwiches” would be. They name it Crostini, that is Canapées – more or less. Today I know: You have to get involved in it and enjoy Cicchetti like the tapas in Spain with a walk through several wine bars in Venice. Then you get behind it very quickly, what makes the special charm of these hearty little things.read more
Gourmet cuisine and brand clothing?
Fine dining at a concept store, that doesn’t match, never, ever – I thought. Until Tom Wickboldt and his team in his The O’ROOM on the German island Usedom convinced me of the opposite. And how! With this new restaurant, Wickboldt sets a culinary exclamation point, which makes the island from the gourmet point of view a lot more attractive.read more
Thai glass noodle soup
There is nothing better than a warming soup on rainy, cold winter days. Our grandmothers already knew that. This Thai-inspired variant is a nice alternative to the classic vegetable soup with meatballs, called “wedding soup” in the north of Germany. Incidentally, a Thai glass noodle soup always tastes good, even on warm, sunny days…read more
