Ingredients for 6 people:
For the meat :
600g minced pork shoulder
400g minced beef
1 shallot, chopped, 2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 bunch of chopped parsley
salt pepper from the mill
100g of breadcrumbs
For the spaetzles :
Salt, pepper, nutmeg
For garnish :
1 red cabbage
For the tomato sauce :
1 carrot in brunoise
1 clove of garlic
1 jar of tomato coulis
salt, pepper, a sprig of rosemary
sugar, balsamic vinegar
The recipe steps:
To start the recipe, start with the meat by simply gathering the ingredients in a bowl to be able to mix it, then set aside so that the aromas take better.
Then move on to preparing the spätzles:
Put a fairly large saucepan filled with water on the heat with a small handful of coarse salt
and a drizzle of sunflower or other oil (not olive oil).
Use the mixer (or for the bravest by hand): mix the flour, salt,
pepper and nutmeg and gradually add the previously mixed milk and eggs
until a soft and smooth paste is obtained.
Cooking the spaetzles :
Take a tablespoon, dip it in boiling water then take a spoonful of paste and dip it back into the water. Repeat the operation until the dough is finished,
this can be done in several times if the pan is too small at home.
When the spätzle rise to the surface: wait a minute and plunge them
into a bath of ice water to stop the cooking, then drain.
Then you can grill them or not according to your convenience
with a knob of butter and a little oil in a pan.
Cooking meat :
Shape the meat into patties, then sear them in the pan before setting them aside in a dish.
Preparation of the tomato sauce and confit red cabbage :
Degrease your pan so that you can prepare the sauce in it: place the onion, garlic
and the carrot to sweat then add the rosemary
Add a pinch of sugar, caramelize slightly and deglaze with balsamic vinegar, and finally add the tomato coulis and simmer over low heat, putting the meat back to finish cooking
In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, melt the butter over low heat until you obtain a hazelnut butter (slightly colored and smelling of hazelnuts).
Add the finely chopped cabbage, season and leave to confit for at least 30 minutes, stirring regularly.
Arrange your fleischkiechles on your plate and drizzle them with tomato sauce.
Add the spätzles, candied cabbage and salad to accompany.
