German Potato Salad
This is popular all over the US already, and it's a great combination with those beer brats. It's really good, really cheap, and has that authentic Oktoberfest flavor with plenty of bacon. It uses vinegar instead of high fat mayonnaise. Click here for the recipe and some great hints to make this really yummy. The dressing for the potato salad can also be used to make a German style "wilted salad" by pouring the hot dressing onto greens.
|Jagerschnitzel in Mushroom Gravy|
Jagerschnitzel or Chicken-Fried Steak
Yes, the German immigrants to Texas probably brought this recipe with them. This recipe is for breaded pork, but the technique can be used in making chicken or beef. Add plenty of sauteed mushrooms to the gravy for extra goodness. Serve with any kind of potatoes or noodles to use all that wonderful gravy. Click here for the recipe at AllRecipes. Open a jar of sweet and sour red cabbage as pictured and you have a fantastic Oktoberfest meal.
|Rouladen ready to saute|
I took this out of the post, but many people are searching for it, so it's back in! To make these authentic beef roll-ups, use beef flank steak, an inexpensive lean cut. Roll up the steak around bacon, pickle slices and onions, tie them with string, then saute the beef roll-ups in butter. You'd think that would be enough flavor, but no. They get simmered in beef broth and served in a sour cream gravy. Wow. That's not exactly a quick recipe, but it's not difficult either. Serve the rolls on good noodles with a side of cooked carrots if you like. Click here for this very popular recipe at AllRecipes.
