Leberkäse, a German street food

Jump to recipe


I grew up on Leberkäse and I could eat it as breakfast. The name “Leberkäse” is a misnomer, it does not contain liver or cheese, mainly pork, therefore some people call it Fleischkäse and in English “German meatloaf”

Leberkaese, Fleischkaese

The Curing salt Prague Powder #1 is not absolutely necessary, it is just there to retain the pink/red color while baking, otherwise it’ll be gray when cooked. Just use more Kosher salt instead for taste. Optional: If you like to keep the red color in the meat, you could add a couple of drops of beet juice or red food coloring to look authentic.

In my opinion, the Ninja Blender works the best to mince the meat. Another option is to buy minced hamburger meat, preferable a pork and beef mixture.

The best meat grinder to mince meat in my opinion is the Ninja Blender preferable 1200W

I personally own a Ninja Blender I bought on Amazon
