A stew that Sylvia Pollack a reader shared with a long long German history. It is characterized with really tasty broth and meat created by using a bone in beef shank. Along with the carrots and leeks this stew gets good body from both Spaetzle and some good firm potatoes. Then to distinguish this dish even more some fried onions on top.
When you see beef shanks on sale grab em and freeze them, save them for this dish.

Braised Ham with Green Beans and Pears
One of the more unusual sounding German classics. If you haven't tried it you must!
You use green pears and cook them whole with the ham and beans. The result is a delicious tender soft pear , the perfect accompaniment to a nice smoky sliced meat and beans.
I know I used a Schinken bone instead of Speck a German bacon, but I didn't have Speck.
The nameske is a tradition and wanted to keep it.
