Saurbraten (sour steak) – Germany

A Recipe from “Berømte Retter” (Famous Dishes) published in 1972


Saurbraten is served in its homeland usually with ribbon spaghetti , but boiled potatoes also tastes great next to it. Saurbraten is one of the best recipes in the German cuisine and can – if properly made – be confused with a good venison roast. Some places in Germany they season the sauce with a  spoonful of plum – or blueberry jam – a variation that can be heartily recommended.

Zalm Met Hollandse Saus (Salmon With Dutch Sauce)

A Recipe from “Berømte Retter” (Famous Dishes) published in 1972

Zalm met Hollandse saus post_ill


In context:
To call Salmon With Dutch Sauce for a Dutch specialty, we must go back to more glorious times. As late as the 18th century, before the great rivers of the Netherlands was contaminated, they contained large amounts of prime salmon. This led, among other things to the servants demanding when they were hired not to have to eat salmon more than twice a week. The pollution has unfortunately put an end to the salmon in the rivers. The Dutch sauce is probably a French invention. (Careme gives the recipe in his cookbook published in 1822). The name probably derives from the role the Dutch butter played in the original recipe.
