How & why I changed some of these recipes ...
German meat recipes! Nothing smelled better in Mom's kitchen than rouladen simmering on the stove. When these beef rolls were cooking, we knew company was coming!
Nothing tasted better than dunking potato dumplings in the beef gravy. BUT, the work! And the expense! Since the favorite meal for my family turned out to be roulades, I decided to do something about it.
Flatladen ~ my alternative to Rouladen ... easier, quicker, and less expensive
That's how I created flatladen. This rouladen alternative is just as delicious, but it's easy and inexpensive enough to use for weekday family meals.
Re-creating a traditional recipe into one less expensive but just as tasty was the same principle that I used for Smoked Pork Chops (Kasseler) with Sauerkraut.
The original version was almost impossible for us to have. Kasseler just wasn't readily available at our deli. But it had a special place in our memories.
So, it took an unexpected visit to my German friend's house to learn her secret. AND, she let me share it with you!
Not too familiar in the kitchen yet or just a beginning cook?
My instructions will teach you the basics of how to cook chicken, beef, pork, and other meats, while at the same time turning out some great meals.
Add some German side dishes, perhaps some dumplings, and red cabbage. Include a great German dessert. Hang the German flag. Put on some om-pa-pa music. HAVE FUN!

This goulash soup is one of my most traditional German soups. It's one I often make when I have company coming over and need something easy to prepare ahead.
