Kartoffelklösse, Rotkohl & Beef Flatladen

The Kartoffelklösse.

I made the Kartoffelklösse to go with the Beef Flatladen and Rotkohl.

It was so good, my invited friend and my hound dog asked for seconds! Although I am a klutz most times in the kitchen 'cause I take too many advisable shortcuts, these recipes were easy to follow.

When making the Kartoffelklösse, I was advised to substitute cornstarch in place of potato flour which worked perfectly and didn't change the flavor I remembered. However, I used a soup spoon to mash the potatoes. NOT recommended as quite a few lumps were left behind. Didn't think to use my standmixer; out of sight out of mind. I even added water thinking it better to roll potato balls but I used too much. I could have corrected by using more cornstarch but didn't think of that either and just rolled up the loose potato balls and dropped them into boiling water. Came out just fine!

With the Beef Flatladen, I used a small jar of garlic dill pickles but not the juice. Three pictures tell the story. One of a well fed Basset hound, another of the dinner on the stove and the third of the potato balls. You can see the small pot of boiling water behind the Rotkohl used for the potato balls. Small problem occurred with the Flatladen: too much for my 10in cast iron skillet. Best to simmer without a lid. I had overflow until I removed it to allow liquid reduction.

Merry Christmas everyone!

dumplings?

Dave, I'm amazed that you were able to keep the potatoes together even though they weren't all smooth. Congratulations! I usually struggle making dumplings, but I'm going to give the recipe you used a try.

Perhaps I'll even try my hand at making rouladen.

Wyldkat, I like your comments about the simple and rustic way that Dave made his meal. I can almost see my Grandmama making something similar on her wood stove. Grandpa would be the one to keep the dogs away.

Love Basset Hounds as well. Just not enough to share this meal with them. Rouladen are such a treat here, together with the potato dumplings with the gravy. Red cabbage is a must with this.

Thanks for the memories!

I would have loved to be an invited guest to your very, very "original" Christmas feast. Your methods, though not necessarily traditional, were simple and rustic. Having read the makings of these long lost recipes (I can still remember the smell this delicious meal). Thanks for memories and the recipes. Can I borrow your bassethound dog?!!? Blessings.
