Easy German Recipe
Steak With Onions
German Rostbraten

This is an easy German recipe using steak. My German steak recipe is known as Schwaebischer Rostbraten (Swabian roast steak).

It is easy to prepare and is one of my easy German food recipes. It consists of slices of beef with fried onions in a red wine and cream sauce.

You can serve Schwaebischer Rostbraten with sliced coarse Rye-bread or with German Sauerkraut and Spaetzle or just with German Spaetzle and salad.

Enjoy one of many traditional easy German recipes.

4 slices rib steak (each about 200g)
salt and freshly ground pepper
melted butter or good cooking oil
4 medium onions
lard when frying in a skillet
a glass of red wine
4 tbsp cream

Preheat oven to 200 degrees C
Flatten the slices of meat lightly with a rolling pin or meat hammer. Score the edges so that the meat won't cup when frying. Season with salt and pepper and brush over with some butter or oil.

Put on the grill in the oven and sear the meat on both sides. Cook to your liking (rare, medium or well done). To test press meat with your fingertip. If it is still elastic, it is still rare. The firmer it feels, the more it is well done!

Slice the onions thinly into rings and fry in hot lard until crisp. Arrange the onions on top of the meat. It is preferable to fry the onions separately.

You can also fry the meat in a heavy skillet. Flatten the meat slices lightly. Score the edges and sear in hot lard or oil. Fry for 3-4 minutes on each side. Season with salt and pepper, take out of the pan and keep warm.

Boil the meat juices together with a glass of red wine, let the sauce thicken and stir in the cream. Serve this creamy sauce with the Swabian roast steaks.

Utterly delicious and tasty meat recipe.
