1/2 c vinegar
1/2 c water
1 onion, sliced
1 bay leave
1 1/2 lbs. beef (shoulder)
1 marrow bone
2 tbls. fat
1 tbls flour
vinegar or lemon juice
pinch of sugar
cream or wine
Cook vinegar, water, sliced onion and seasoning together for 10
minutes. Steep beef in this marinade for 2 or 3 days. Drain (save
liquid!). Brown meat and marrow bone in hot fat. Add the onion,
tomato and 1/2 cup of the marinade, ccover and simmer for 1 hour.
Turn the meat in remaining liquid so that it is coated on all sides.
Carve and put on a warm platter.
For sauce, Mix flour with pan liquid until smooth. Add the rest of
the marinade and stir until smooth and thickened. Sauerbraten sauce
calls for more ample ingrdients than other sauces. Add, to taste,
a little vinegar or lemon juice, a pich of sugar, salt, a little
fresh butter and a tablspoon of cream or wine. Strain and pour over
meat or serve as a seperate sauce. Serve with potatoes, dumplings
4 cups flour
1 cup water
1 tbls salt
Prepare a firm dough from the eggs. flour, water and salt. Beat
until it comes eeasily away from the bowl. Form dumplings and cook
in boiling salted water. skim them from the top, dip in cold water
and serve on a hot platter. Spaetzle may also be browned in a little
butter before serving.
A note... I have a wonder kitchen gadget - a spaetzle maker! You
should be able to find one for about $15/US at any quality kitchen
store. It is the BEST kitchen gadget I own! There are many ways to
'form' the dumplings. You can do it by hand, though tedious,
because traditional spaetzle is small. I have read and tried to
press them through a large-holed caulander, but it doesn't work
very well. The spaetzle maker is like a flat grater w/ a sliding
hopper on top. You place the dough in the hopper, place the gadget
over the pan of boiling water, and work the hopper back-n-forth...
wonderful, little dumplings drop into the pan! It wonderful! And
best of all, FUN! AND GOOD TO EAT! Try the leftover spaetzle for
breakfast: brown/fry it in a skillet and and cinnamon and sugar!
My favorite main dish for spaetzle is cutlets w/ paprika gravy.
