Our Kitchen

At the Uerige, of course we also offer delicious hearty food to be washed down with the yummy droplet.

Alongside our standard menu, every day we offer warm seasonal dishes (for example, kale and smoked sausage in the cold season) and of course our famous Saturday pea soup. All of the specialties on offer are prepared freshly by our team in the ultramodern kitchen. Our legendary meat balls, for example, are served warm, straight from the saucepan, and our rolls with Mettwurst (sausage spread) are prepared minutes before they get to you. This loving care is something you can taste, and our regulars greatly appreciate this.

Friday: Cabbage Roulade

Ingredients:
savoy cabbage, ground meat, belly of pork, potatoes

This is how we do it at the Uerige: halve the savoy cabbage, cut out the stalk. Loosen the leaves and rinse, then briefly blanch them. Mix the ground meat with onions, white bread crumbs, herbs, mustard, and tomato ketchup, then form this into a longish roll and wrap a generous amount of savoy leaves around the meat mix. Cut the pork into fine cubes and fry, then add chopped onions and some jus to create a nice gravy sauce.
We serve our delicious cabbage roulade with gravy, peeled boiled potatoes, and a sprinkling of fresh parsley.

Saturday: Pea Soup

Saturday: Pea Soup

Ingredients (for c. 200 helpings):
15 kg salt-cured knuckle of pork, a crate of leeks, 5 kg carrots, 7,5 kg celeriac, 20 kg dried green peas. Salt and dry stock, some bicarbonate of soda.

Two days before we prepare our soup, we already boil the meat in plenty of water. Once it is tender, we leave it to cool and then cut it into cubes. We keep the broth as this will serve as the basis for our soup. On the following day, we leave the dry peas to soak in cold water (we use a mix of 2/3 unhusked peas and 1/3 with husks). Then, on the third day, the actual cooking starts:
we add a dash of bicarbonate to the soaked peas, fill this up with the broth, and cook the peas for approx. 2 hours. Then we test if they are tender. If they are, we add the meat and the trimmed and chopped vegetables. We leave this to boil for a while, then season to taste and serve. Our pea soup (with plenty of meat and veggies) comes in a pre-heated dish – a true classic!
