The most famous of all GDR dishes is probably the Jägerschnitzel. But of course it is not roasted veal or pork schnitzel with a mushroom sauce, as is known in the old federal states. The original GDR "Jägerschnitzel", as it was served in numerous restaurants and in the KITA or school canteens, consists of breaded Jagdwurst sausage with tomato sauce and noodles.
8 slices of hunting sausage (about finger-thick)
almost 100g tomato paste
1 vegetable onion
2 tablespoons flour
salt, pepper, sugar
Turn slices of hunting sausage (Jagwurst) one after the other in flour.
Mix eggs with breadcrumbs and coat the hunting sausage with that mixture.
Fry the slices of the hunting sausage in a pan with margarine until they are golden brown.
Cut onion into cubes and sauté in a pot with butter.
Add tomato paste and flour and sauté while stirring continuously.
Fill up with water until a creamy consistency is obtained.
Add ketchup and bring to the boil, stirring continuously.
Simmer for about 10 minutes and season with salt and pepper.
The preparation time is about 30 minutes. We recommend spirelli pasta as a side dish.
Tip: For a slightly sweet and sour sauce, we recommend adding a little sugar and vinegar as you like.
