Schmor means braised in German and of course Braten is roasted.
This is a great winter dish and if you have never cooked in German dark beer you are in for a surprise! The flavors of Beef and Beer go together like Magic.

German Buffalo Chicken Wings

Chicken Wings with Sauerbraten Sauce

This is an interesting recipe that long time friend from Buffalo, New York Barb Rokitka sent me. Buffalo is Chicken Wing country and even got a Chicken wing dish named after the city that has become quite popular. ..

These wings are truly addictive to me. I always LOOOVE the smell of a good Sauerbraten gravy. I never associated it with a Buffalo Chicken Wing though and to tell you the truth it still sounds funny. I do want to urge you to try them though and put your own twist on them. I added a little Franks Hot Sauce to them, and I added a bit of extra vinegar as I don't like them so sweet.





Tomato Dumplings

This recipe from Sylvia Norris has a different base than a Goulasch or Stew for dumplings. One of my dad's favorite dishes is Stewed Tomatoes with Bread.
The bread of course thickens the tomatoes. This is a different take on the dish where you stew the tomatoes and floate the dumpling batter on top, cover and simmer and then serve. Seems like this would be a great side dish with some Bratwurst, or Schnitzel.

1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup diced onion
1/4 cup diced green pepper
1/4 cup celery
1 bay leaf
1 (28 oz) can stewed tomatoes, undrained and coursely chopped
2 tsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp drained basil or tbs chopped fresh basil

1 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbs butter cut up
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/3 cup milk
1 tbs. minced fresh parsley


Melt 1/4 cup butter in medium saucepan over medium-high heat; add onion and next three ingredients, and saute 5 minutes, or until onion and bell pepper are tender.
Stir in tomatoes , next 4 ingredients. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 3 min.

Combine flour, baking powder, and 1/2 tsp. butter with pastry blender until mixture is crumbly. Add egg, milk and parsley, stirring until dry ingredients are moistened. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls into simmering tomatoe mixture. Cover and cook over med-low heat for 20 min. Remove and discard bay leaf.

I have added more than one can of tomatoes to this recipe for more tomato flavor.
