The preparations :

  • Since I don't always look at the clock straight away, it can vary a bit. It has to be chopped up a lot. I cut the vegetables into cubes of the same size: Prepare everything in the right place so I don't have to keep running to look for or fetch this or that.
  • So: cut vegetables, prepare a large roasting pan, preheat the oven to 220 °: spices are ready: bottle opened, tomato paste sprinkled on. Heat the roaster, sprinkle in the powdered sugar and caramelize it, then add the vegetables straight away, stir until they shine. Then stir-fry the caraway seeds and roast the belly briefly. Put the tomato paste in the middle, toast briefly until it leaves marks on the bottom. Now pour the beer in sips so that everything can combine well.
  • Once that's done, I put in the salted piece of meat. Add some more meat stock and put the lid on. From the oven, which I take the temperature, stay at 170 ° in the middle on the grid. Here he can slowly snuggle for a good 3 hours. During this time I prepare the bread dumplings.

  • A bowl with a lid is an advantage: Toasted bread cut 10 slices into cubes, put half of them in the bowl and set the other half aside. Leave the bacon with a little butter in the pan, add the onion and spring onion, fry until translucent, remove the remaining butter, pour it into the pan, melt it, roast the rest of the toasted bread cubes in it until golden. Add the onion bacon mixture.
  • Now everything comes together, mix well in the bowl, pour the hot milk (I use the rest of the heat from the oven) over it. Put the lid on and let it sit for a good 30 minutes. If I still need milk, I can pour it again. But first the two eggs are added, so the dough becomes more handy. Mix everything, then you take your hands, of course (washed beforehand, of course), season to taste with the spices. Let stand, I always prepare it in the evening, it works too.
  • So, put the big pot with water to the boil and sprinkle in the salt, stir some cornstarch with water into the boiling water, so you won't get a nasty surprise, Help the dumplings are boiled off. Let it stand for a good 20 minutes, then they are done.


  • Everything that I have described here actually goes hand in hand, if one thing is done you can devote yourself to the other. Therefore the time division is consecutive. My time is based on the thumb. Because you have to interrupt some things. Thank you for the time you took to read all of this. Your Uschi
