Tafelspitz

Tafelspitz.One of the dishes from our Germany-Austria trip that Danya asked me multiple times to recreate is tafelspitz, or simply put boiled beef. I am not sure why it took me so long, but I’ve decided to give it a try today. It is really a simple and hearty dish, which our whole family enjoyed for lunch. Kids ate it without horseradish-apple souse.

I simmered beef with spices, salt and broth vegetables for about 3 hours. Then took the meat out, discarded broth vegetables, added roughly chopped side vegetables to the bullion and simmered them for another 20 minutes or so. Served with the horseradish-apple souse and beef bullion on the side.

For beef and broth:
  • 1.5 liters of water
  • 2 lbs beef
  • 1 big carrot
  • 1 onion
  • 2 celery stalks
  • Spices (pepper, caraway seed, coriander, cloves, bay leave, etc)
  • Salt to taste

For the side vegetables:
  • 4 Yukon gold potatoes
  • 1 medium turnip
  • 1 parsnip
  • 1 big carrot
  • 2 celery stalks

And for the horseradish-apple souse I just peeled, cored and finely grated one granny smith apple, added a few tablespoons of lemon juice, salt and sugar to taste and then added a few tablespoons of store bought horseradish souse.

Easy, healthy, yummy!

Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed Peppers.When I was buying spinach for Spanakopita last week, one of the managers in our local supermarket expressed her love of this plant and made a few spinach-y meal suggestions. It turned out that I bought more spinach than I needed for my Greek pie, so I’ve decided to utilize her advice and stuffed some peppers for dinner last night.

I did not follow any specific recipe, but used bits of wisdom from a few resources. Here is what I came up with: Continue Reading

Meat and Potatoes Pie

Meat and Potatoes Pie.I made this pie yesterday, and it would have been gone yesterday, have I not wisely preserved part of it for tonight’s dinner. ) It came out delicious!

I used beef since lamb is not easy to find in our neighborhood. I also used young potatoes (I think they add a touch of sweetness to the filling) and a bit more spices than the recipe calls for. I will definitely make this again! Mrs. Mansurov published an excellent set of photographs illustrating the process, which made it even easier for me.
