GDR Recipe: Roast pork with sauerkraut

The Kasseler/Kassler gets its individual flavour from special pickling and smoking. It is said that the name was given after the master butcher Cassel, who lived in Berlin in the 19th century. Kasselerbraten was often served with potatoes and sauerkraut.

GDR Recipe: Broiler with french fries

Fried chicken or golden broiler? The difference was the size and meat content. The broiler has more of both than the normal chicken. After Bulgaria switched to industrial poultry production in the 1970s, the GDR followed this example shortly afterwards. The broiler was a typical GDR dish for the whole family.
