Bayern/Bavarian Dishes

SCHWEINEBRATEN

ingredients:
  • pork shoulder (with bone and skin)
  • 1 onion
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 pieces of garlic
  • flour
  • salt and pepper

  1. cut little squares into the skin of the pork
  2. put all the ingredients into a casserole, add vegetable oil and cook itin the oven at 220 C or 425 F.
  3. add water after one hour and add a little bit more water later
  4. leave the whole thing in the oven for about 2 and a half hours
  5. take it out and add a little bit of flour to the juice (to make the gravy thicker)


This is one of my favourite dishes. Extremely fattening. Instead of adding water on step 3, I experimented with different cold liquid such as beer. I was warned not to tell Bayerns that I tried coke and root beer, as they might get offended.



BLAUKRAUT

ingredients:
  • 1 red cabbage
  • 1 onion
  • 1 apple
  • 4 cloves
  • salt and pepper
  • vineger


  1. shred the red cabbage, dice the onion and the apple
  2. fry the onion in a big pot in vegetable oil (just a little bit, don't let it get brown), add the shredded red cabbage, add 2 cups of water, add salt, pepper, vineger, a bit sugar and 4 cloves, add the apple and boil everything for a short time
  3. lower the heat and leave the pot on the stove for about 2 hours (low heat)





SERVIETTENKNOEDEL

  • 6 bread buns (one day old)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/8l milk
  • 1 small onion
  • a little bit parsley
  • salt and pepper
  • 80g butter
  • 50 g flour
  • nutmeg
  • a clean dish towel


  1. dice the bread buns; separate the eggs; mix the egg yolks with the milk, add salt and pour the mixture over the buns
  2. dice the onion and the parsley; heat one table spoon butter in a pan and fry the onion (don't let it get brown); add the flour and parsley and mix it with the buns
  3. beat the eggwhites (add a little salt) and mix with the bun-mixture; add salt, pepper, nutmeg and form a roll (tube)
  4. boil water in a big pot (add salt); heat the remaining butter and pour it over the dish towel; wrap the dish towel around the bun-tube and tie the ends with a string
  5. cook for about 40 minutes at medium heat; cut the finished roll into slices
