BRATWURST (GRILLED SAUSAGE)
A popular street food, and probably the most recognizable to Americans. The sausages are generally made of pork and veal, and seasoned with spices then grilled until the skin is nice and crispy and served with sauerkraut and mustard.
RINDERROULADE (BEEF ROLL)
Typically served in the Saxony region, this dish really packs multiple flavors into a neat roll. The thin beef slices are filled with bacon, pickles, and mustard and is then roasted with red wine and topped with delicious gravy. It pairs nicely with roasted winter vegetables.
KARTOFFELPUFFER (POTATO PANCAKE)
Similar to a latke, this fried potato pancake is usually served with eggs for breakfast (think German hashbrowns). It’s very common to top them with applesauce and sour cream.
SCHWEINSHAXE (HAM HOCK/PORK KNUCKLE)
The marinated pork knuckle is roasted at low temperatures until the skin is crispy and brittle but the meat is tender and juicy.
