First wash the turkey or pork thoroughly and pat dry with kitchen paper.

Cut the meat into smaller pieces and flatten with a rolling pin or a meat hammer.

Lightly season the meat with salt and pepper and coat in flour.

Melt the butter in a pan and brown the meat on both sides. Then add the vegetable broth.

Stir in the creme fraiche and cook on a low heat for 10-15 mins until the meat is cooked through. Add tomato sauce to taste.

Enjoy your German style home cooking.


Serve with the following:

mashed potato
french fries
Spaetzle – special kind of homemade pasta, typical of Southern Germany
boiled potatoes

Of course you can use turkey, chicken or pork, whatever you prefer. Make sure that the meat is cooked through until tender. This is to ensure that any salmonella present is destroyed.
