This recipe while authentically German in
every respect did not come to me from Germany. I got this recipe from the
Sophienburg Museum in New Braunfels, Texas. That's right Texas, not
Germany. New Braunfels was settled by German immigrants recruited from all
over Germany and brought to Texas under the auspices of the Society for the
Protection of German Immigrants in Texas, a corporation chartered by the Duchy
of Nassau. The stockholders were all members of the German Nobility.
The organization was generally referred to as the Addsverein or simply, The
Society. Prince Carl von Solms-Brunfels, a handsome young cavalry officer
and member of the society, was in Texas to expedite the colonization project
with German-Texans whom he had engaged to help him, among them Ferdinand
Lindheimer, and L. C. Ervendberg. They had the newcomers and their baggage
carted to the site of the colony. They arrived there March 21, 1845.
Solms named the colony New Braunfels after his ancestral home in Germany.
This German dish is onions with a sliced of beef rolled around them and then
cooked. What a delightful taste this is. I highly recommend it to
anyone who claims to be an onion lover. Guten Appetit!
