  • -gives
  • An excellent flavor), cut
  • -into 3/4 inch cubes
  • 2 md To 3 md onions, diced

  • 1 lg Leek (white part only),
  • -washed and sliced
  • 2 c Beef stock
  • Chopped fresh parsley


Heat the lard in a heavy bottomed pot (or ovenproof Pyrex casserole or the
like). Lightly sear and mix together the meat cubes and the onions; season
with salt, an ample amount of pepper, and a very little bit of crushed
marjoram. Remove two thirds of the meat and onions from the pot and set

Mix the potatoes and vegetables together; spread a third of these over the
bottom layer of meat cubes in the pot or casserole. Sprinkle with salt and
a little pepper. Alternate 2 more layers of meat with 2 more layers of
vegetables. Each layer should be separately seasoned with salt and pepper;
the top layer MUST consist of vegetables and potatoes. Pour in the beef
stock. Cover tightly and cook over medium-low heat for just about 2 hours.
Cooking in a 350 degrees F oven is also possible. You should not stir the
stew, but you can tilt the pot back and forth to circulate the liquid and
prevent the bottom layer from burning. Serve sprinkled with chopped


Savoy cabbage is frequently added to the roster of vegetables, and it
tastes delicious. Sliced kohlrabi would be fine as well.

For a truly gourmet 'Pichelsteiner', 6 to 8 slices of bone marrow should be
briefly sauteed with the onions at the beginning, then added to one of the
in-between layers of meat. Doubling of ingredients is advisable.
Pichelsteiner tastes excellent reheated.
