Oma's German Meat Recipes

➤ by Oma Gerhild Fulson

Want German meat recipes that taste like your Oma made them? The rouladen? The schnitzel? The sauerbraten? Only, you want them easy to make? That's what you'll find here. 

I love food as much as you do. I just don't love spending too much time in the kitchen. That's why you'll find lots of traditional German meat recipes here ... made in easier and modern ways.

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.

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!

Need that “all’s good with the world” feeling? Comfort food will do that. Grab my German Comfort Foods e-Cookbook written in English just for you.

Sharing traditional German foods, made using easily available ingredients, ... that's such a delicious way to feel a 'hug' anytime of the year.

Oma says,

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!

So try out some old favorites and then try some new ones. You'll find dozens of German meat recipes here to enjoy.
