Weisswurst, sauerkraut, Austrian potato salad



  • Here are some more German/Austrian words:
    In der Regel ;) isst man Weisswurst nicht in der Semmel sondern mit einem Bretzel und dazu ein Mass Bier.
    Koennte ich bitte das Rezept fuer den Oesterreichischen Kartoffelsalat haben? Danke und Frohe Weihnachten
    The "rule is" ;) to eat the Weisswurst not on a roll but with a brezel and together with a mass (1 liter) of beer.
    Could I please have the recipe for the Austrian potato salad? Thanks and Merry Christmas

  • We've got a German sausage store not far from where I live. Weisswurst is one of my favorites. There's a great link on their website regarding the protocol for eating weisswurst.

    How to eat a weisswurst
  • Austrian, it seems I have broken every Bavarian rule there is and then some.

    Austrian Potato Salad from Wolfgang Puck

    1/4 cup peanut oil
    1 cup Champagne vinegar
    2 tsp sea salt
    1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
    1 tsp minced parley
    1 Tbsp minced thyme
    1 small onion minced

    2 lbs of fingerling or small yukon gold potatoes
    6 - 8 cloves of crushed garlic
    several sprigs of thyme
    3 Tbsp Kosher salt

    Bring potatoes to a boil with the garlic, salt, and thyme sprigs, then simmer until barely done (I slightly overcooked mine). Let them cool until they are just warm, before slicing into 1/4 inch or so thick slices. (You can peel them or leave the peel on. In reality, even if you leave the peel on, 1/2 of the peel comes off when slicing).

    While the potatoes are still warm, add the marinade. I slice two potatoes, then add some dressing while they are still warm, then I proceed on with two more potatoes. That way the potatoes are still warm when the dressing is added and I think they absorb more dressing.

    ;) you are welcome !
  • Paul, I've had properly prepared simmered weisswurst in a park in Germany and 1) ate it before noon, 2) I zuzelned it out of the skin, 3)used sweet mustard, 4)ate it with a pretzel on the side, 5)drank it with a beer (although don't remember what kind), 6) belched afterwards in satisfaction! :silly:

    Can't seem to quite duplicate that expericence back home. ;) I know a German might be appalled, but it still made a good dinner despite being grilled along with all the other atrocities. :laugh:

    Thanks for the link, now I won't have to leave the weisswurst etiquette to the Germans. :)
  • Thank you for the recipe.
    As for eating Weisswurst - I was just kidding; the only rule I have is: there is no rule, except I got to have a good beer with it.
  • I was sure ther was an "N" at the end. Maybe I was calling that six foot barmaid sweetie.
