A tender cut like Porterhouse, T-Bone, Rib Eye, New York or Top Sirloin are all good steaks for this simple marinade. Serve with a dollop of garlic butter, if desired.
This takes some time, but is well worth the effort. I use a food processor. It is a hearty soup, great on a cold winter night. Serve hot, topped with sour cream.
Whole Wheat Drop Biscuits
These are quick, easy, vegan biscuits. I especially like them with soup or vegetarian chili.
Authentic German Potato Salad
This is my mother's recipe. Everyone, German or not, loves it. It is easy to double the recipe as well. I often bring it to potlucks, and we also have it at home on special occasions. There are usually no leftovers, but if there are, they don't last long!
This version of knefla is a tasty, easy German-Russian staple for dinner, comprised simply of dough and potatoes. Sometimes I add 2 teaspoons of chicken bouillon to the boiling water for extra flavor. Serve with sausage, brats, or alone. Some like it with sauerkraut or breadcrumbs for garnish.
Deep fried dumplings with seasoned ground beef. This is a favorite in Germany. Our family is German and my grandfather taught me how to me it! Recipe sounds odd. Take a chance. I guarantee your family will love it!
Bauernomlett (Farmer's Omelet)
In Germany, this simple dish is served at breakfast , lunch or dinner. It's also called 'Farmer's Omelet.' Serve with a dill pickle or a nice salad as a side. My kids prefer ketchup with the meal.
Norwegian Butter Cookies
Excellent as either drop cookies or cookie press cookies. Try using lemon extract in place of the vanilla for a citrusy punch!
A special Scandinavian treat. Beginner lefse makers might want to make only a third of the portion the first time through! Serve any number of ways. A favorite is with butter or margarine and sugar. Some people like cinnamon with this, too. Jellies make an excellent topping as do thinly sliced fried sandwich meat.
Vanille Kipferl I
This recipe is known in America as almond crescents. I converted the measurements and translated this recipe that has been in my family for generations. It's a German Christmas cookie.
