Kalle brought a German food to my attention, Dampfnudeln
I read what I could find and came up with my own version. A sourdough yeast dough filled with cooked onions, ground beef and pork and pepper. I steamed these over a sauerkraut, apple and onion mixture and served them with a mushroom gravy. Delicious!
