Spinach Spätzle in a Ham Cream Sauce with Mixed Salad – Spinatspätzle in Schinkenrahmsauce mit gemischten Salat

Gasthof Knapp. A-6261 Strass · Zillertal

Spinach Spätzle (Spinatspätzle) is a Tyrolean variation on a traditionally Swabian classic. Instead of plain, regular egg-based Spätzle, this one is enhanced with nutritionally-rich spinach. The result is a festive green hue painting the surface. Coating the Spätzle is a sticky cream sauce with finely chopped ham pieces and translucent onions scattered about. The colors scream Christmas – appropriate considering the upcoming holiday season! Continue reading

Dish of the Day 1: Round Steak with Rösti, Vegetables, and mixed Salad – Tagesgericht 1: “Rumpsteak” mit Rösti, Gemüse, gem. Salat

Gasthof Goldener Löwe. A-6130 Schwaz · Husslstraße 4

Steak and potatoes! When done right, there are few things that beat this classic, comforting combo. Okay, maybe chicken and potatoes or even turkey and spuds but that’s beside the point. With the abundance of potatoes and the presence of cows all over the region, it comes as no surprise that you can find steak and potatoes in most restaurants here in Tyrol. Continue reading

Gasthof Café Zillertal. A-6261 Strass im Zillertal · Hof 69

Tyrolean culinary specialties include the unusual (Zillertaler Krapfen with Graukäse grey cheese), slightly familiar (variations of Knödel bread dumplings), and the typical (Käsespätzle, Gröstl meat and potatoes dish). Café Zillertal’s ‘Almpfandl,’ listed under their special Tyrolean delicacy section, sounds like maybe it’s something unfamiliar but it’s actually a rather standard dish in the Alps. Continue reading

Ganzes Hendl mit Pommes und Kartoffelsalat

Hendl Paradies. A-6130 Schwaz · Münchner Straße 3

Whole chickens, skewered on a spit, slowly rotate around inside a large industrial oven; its mouthwatering, natural juices drip down in intervals onto a flat sheet pan under the constant rotisserie heat. The birds gradually develop a perfectly brown crust all around their exterior as they roast for a fixed period of time. They begin at the top of the oven and eventually work their way down to the base, where the fully cooked chickens are ready to be served! Continue reading

Pork Medallions in a Mushroom Cream Sauce with Spinach Spätzle – “Jagapfandl” – Schweinemedaillons in Schwammerlrahmsauce, dazu Spinatspätzle

Gasthof Pfandler. A-6261 Strass im Zillertal · Dorf 18

Pork medallions sit in a brown mushroom cream sauce next to a mound of spinach infused spätzle, all presented in traditional fashion inside an old-fashioned skillet. A nice touch of cream sits on a pair of orange slices, vibrant cranberry sauce spooned on top of the heavenly bed. The cream and cranberries topping almost makes the dish look like a dessert! At the same time, the red cranberries and green colored noodles evoke a festive, holiday theme in the dish that immediately grabs your attention. Flavor wise, the dish matches its impressive but simple presentation – the ‘Jagapfandl’ does not disappoint! Continue reading
