Tafelspitz, or Franconian Wedding Dinner

Tafelspitz, Beef with horseradish sauce

Also called Fränkisches Hochzeitsessen”, or Franconian Wedding Dinner. It’s was a staple at our dinner table when growing up. Can be eaten with potatoes or wide noodles. Besides Horseradish sauce in recipe below, the condiment of my choice is Cranberry Chutney. I have not found Preiselbeeren, so this is a good substitute

Tafelspitz would be very tender if it is prepared in the Slow Cooker or Instant pot. If you don’t own one, I recommend one of these:

Category: Main meal
Cuisine: German
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes

Can be eaten with potatoes or wide noodles. Besides Horseradish sauce, the condiment of my choice is Cranberry Chutney (AngiesWeb recipe)

Ingredients

  • 2 lb beef (Top Round, but a similar piece also works)
  • 2 lb diced or sliced vegetables (Carrots, onions, celery, parsnip, leeks) also called Suppengrün
  • salt, pepper,
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3 cloves
  • 5 peppercorns

Instructions

  • Start cooking the beef. Take a large stockpot and add the beef and the diced vegetables.
  • Fill up with clear cold water, so the beef is completely submerged.
  • Set on the stovetop and heat at medium high heat.
  • Add the bay leaves (3 or 4), a tablespoon of salt, a teaspoon of pepper and 3 cloves.
  • Boil for 60 to 90 minutes. Take a skewer or a large fork and check from time to time if the meat is already soft. (Pressure Cooker or Instant Pot 25 minutes a pound)
  • When the meat is tender, remove it from the water and place on a plate or dish, for cooling down.

I recommend boiled potatoes or wide noodles for a side. Also my Horseradish Sauce, and instead of “Preiselbeeren” my Cranberry Apple Chutney
