    Default Dear Germans, German-Americans and Germophiles

    Ok Im looking for a food and google is not helping.

    A while back I was in Fredricksburg where we stopped at a German restaurant and I tasted some of the local fare.

    I had

    Spoetzel (Good)
    Hot German Potato salad (Which I didn't like)
    Various breads and cheeses (very good)
    Some type of sausage (Very Good)

    The main dish is what I can't find, its roast beef thinly sliced with onions and pickles. Then it's covered in brown gravy. I think it was called Raluden but google gives me nothing

    Thanks in advance.

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.

    I'm not sure why German cooking gets slagged off so often. It's much better than British cooking.

    We Cajuns invented a version of the roulade (or rouladen, as they call it in German cuisine), which you may know as the Turducken.

    If by Cajuns you mean French royals, then you'd be right.

    Southgerman cousine is IMHO quite good. The Italians actually absolutly adore alpine tyrolean/southtyrolean cousine especially when in the mountains. We have the best desserts in the whole world - if so many nationalities I met say so

    BTW most German dishes stand head and shoulders above anything typical I tasted in England and the USA. Terrible stuff, or at least most of it. I can't understand why a so much higher percentage is overweight there than here (Tyrol). Given the relative quality of food it should be the other way around.

    Nope, the Turducken is a Cajun dish. Les Roi went too far with it, and used too many birds. They didn't understand subtlety.


    Really anything can be made into a roulade. A common one here is a chicken roulade, where we completely debone a (half: you actually get two per) hen, then basically stuff the dark meat in the white meat, with cheese and spices between the two. It's very good.

    IIRC though, the French did it first and the Cajuns came up with the specific combination of birds. French invention and Cajun refinement?

    The act of stuffing animals inside of each other can be traced back at least to the medieval period. There are countless variations on it. As with all dishes, each variation and combination within this category are different recipes, and can have different names.

    Do we call every cake just "a cake?" Is not a chocolate cake different from a banana nut? Is not a Devil's food different from a German Chocolate (named after the man, not the people BTW)?

    While I do not claim that Cajun people invented the act of stuffing birds inside each other, the Turducken is ours.


    Edit:

    Also, the Cajun's are descendants of French colonists, who have existed in a relatively isolated community for several centuries. So yes, either way, the French invented it.

    Queen Victoria's favourite Christmas dish involved stuffing at least 5 birds inside each other.

    I like to see birds stuffing birds as well...

    Oh wait, this is about food.

    Yesterday I made myself rice with ground beef, and I even made a sauce with the ground beef, for the first time!
    If I go on cooking like that maybe I can invite you for dinner SFTS?

    How's about Australian food

    Big juicy steaks, marinated chicken breasts, a few snags and rissoles, some onions, and eggs all done on the barbie, and a few taters baked in their jackets, all topped off by a bit of salad for the sheilas, and drowned in tomato and bbq sauce.

    Sounds like bloody good tucker to me *drools all over keyboard*

    <----- made rouladen last night. Used onion, pickle, celery & carrot for stuffing. Gravy over it and baby spuds, with mustard on the side for dip.

    Big hit with Mrs. K., who usually approaches my "experiments" (as she calls them) with hesitation. Zero leftovers.

    Thanks for reminding me of a great German dish, and inspiring me to give it a shot.
    Be well. Do good. Keep in touch.
