Homemade Salami



Ready in 1 day and 2 hours
Serves 8
195 calories

2 pounds ground beef
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon mustard
2 tablespoons sugar-based curing mixture (such as Morton(R) Tender Quick(R))
1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, garlic powder, onion powder, mustard seed, curing salt, black pepper and liquid smoke. Mix in the red pepper flakes if desired. Roll the mixture into a 2 inch diameter log, and wrap tightly in aluminum foil. Refrigerate for 24 hours.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Make a few slits in the bottom of the roll to allow the fat to drain when cooking. Place roll onto a broiler pan, and fill the bottom part of the pan with about 1 inch of water to keep the salami moist.
Bake for 90 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove from pan and cool completely before unwrapping the salami. Slice and eat as lunch meat, or serve on a tray with crackers and cheese.

Luckily for Elizabeth the […]

Klim is a brand of powdered milk sold by Nestlé. Klim is sold worldwide.

I never heard of Klim, I will have to try this one for my next dinner party, as dessert.

3 Tbsp Flour
1 egg
salt, water and oil

Servings: 4 Total Time: 15-20 min.


Mix flour and salt in a bowl.  Add the egg and mix everything well.  Then, slowly add the water until the texture is thick but runny. Put it aside.

Pour oil in a sauce pan and heat it to 365 degrees.  Fill a Spätzlepresse with the dough and let it drip into the hot oil.  If you don’t own a Spätzlepresse you can let the dough drip through a strainer or colander.  Make sure the strainer or colander stay dry so the dough doesn’t stick to it. The little drops of dough are going to swim on the surface of they oil when done.  When done take them out of the hot oil and place them on a paper towel to cool off.
Repeat the process until all dough is used up.

Add them to your soup just before serving.  I usually have them in a bowl on the table and the guest can and their own amounts.

Backerbsen can also be purchase in stores or ordered online.
