Kitchen, Germany - 21st April 2012

By: Eustachia

Hello my cooking friends  :D


Today i wanna show you a typical hessian recipe, named Potatoes with Pointer's sauce (german: Kartoffeln mit Deuter Soße).


The sauce is named pointer's because the sauce is very liquid. When you take some sauce on your plate, you make a mess. This person who got the most blots showing to his plate was very hungry. So the blots "point" at the person who ate the most. That's why it is called pointer's sauce!

Haha, wow it's not that easy to explain this in english, but i hope you understand what i mean  :)

But now we wanna start with our cooking!

This recipe is very very easy but sooo delicious! I promise! It tastes a bit like Tarte Flambee (german: Flammkuchen).

First of all we boil our potatoes. If you don't like potatoes with skin, peel them first.


Here are all ingredients we need for the sauce.


10 minutes before the potatoes are ready, we start with our sauce.


So first, we cut the onions..


and raost them gently in hot oil.



About one minute later we add the diced ham and roast it all together.



Then we deglaze it with 1 cup of cream.


We also need one cup of milk, so we can use this cup to measure it. Put the milk also into our pot.


I prefer the sauce more viscous. Therefore i boil it up..


and thicken slightly with a mixture of our sauce mixed with a little bit of flour.


Now it is more viscous. Perfect!


Add some salt and pepper and ready is our sauce.

Now we put 4-5 potatoes on a soup plate..


and dash over the "Pointer's sauce".

Enjoy your meal!


This was my last recipe from Eustachia for now.
Now i will start my travel and collect as much recipes as i can from all over the world.

I hope you enjoyed the updates. See you next time  :D
