If you missed it a few weeks ago, here is a delicious recipe for Beef Schaschlik that is braised till fork tender
Recipe by Trudy Maynard


My friend Dieter Monka told me about how good Chicken Schaschlik was. He is from the North Rhine / Westphalia area of Germany in the city of Gelsenkirchen. Kirche means church and Kirchen is more like churches. I get it mixed up with Kirsch which means cherry.

He has sent me some fun foods from Germany like Zuckerrübensirup, (a light sugar beet molasses) that is wonderful on potato pancakes.

I sent him something that I thought was truly American which was Frank's Hot Sauce that is the choice for Buffalo Wings in Buffalo, New York.

He liked it and added a bit to his marinade for Chicken Schaschlik.


Chicken Schaschlik
Chicken Skewers in Tangy Marinade with Onions and Peppers

These are often served with Pomme Fritts (French Fries) at the food stands in Germany.
Instead I baked the potato, wedged it, tossed them with a little olive oil and seasoning salt, then lined
them up on the grill on a lower heat while I cooked the chicken skewers.

From Germany with Love,
By Aileen Block

This is a nice companion book to Recipes from a German Grandma.
From Germany with Love tells the story of my grandma, Emma Block, growing up in a little town in Baden/ Würtemberg, Germany near Heidelberg named Steinsfurt. Then at the age of 15 immigrating to the United States, taking a train with one of her sisters and brothers to Hamburg and sailing the Atlantic with other hope filled Germans wanting to make a life in the "New World". It was not easy but with good values learned in her German upbringing made a full life, had a wonderful family with lots of fun and celebration including the great German meals.

Pork Schaschlik
Pork Loin Skewers in Tangy Marinade
with Bacon, Peppers, Onion and Cucumber

I thought maybe Dieter was mistaking cucumber for zucchini when he talked to me about his
Schaschliks, but I tried it anyway and loved it! Hot off the BBQ cucumber tastes like a cross between zucchini and melon.
A nice contrast with the meat and peppers.

I love to use Charcoal when I can.
