One of my favorite weeks is back – Cleveland Restaurant Week starts today! Definitely take a break from cooking and get a taste of what some of my favorite CLE restaurants are serving up.
During the following 13 days, you can enjoy special menus and pricing at many of the local restaurants for a great deal. At most participating restaurants, you can choose a 3 course menu for only $33. Because it’s actually almost TWO weeks, you have lots of opportunities to take advantage for the special deals.
I was invited to join the lovely ladies at Der Braumeister in the kitchen for a sneak preview of some of the menu items being served during Restaurant Week. I learned about their multi-generational female-owned business, rolled up my sleeves and cooked with them, and even got a hug from Oma – the OG lady boss of the family.
I not only have a recipe to share with you, I also have a bonus deal to entice you to try their delicious home-cooked meals.
When you purchase the Restaurant Week Menu, mention EatDrinkCleveland and you can choose one of these special offers:
*25% off your entire alcoholic beverage order
*Add on a German beer pairing for only $10
Trust me, the food alone is worth the trip but the boozy bonus can’t be beat!
We made rouladen which is one of my favorite German dishes. It’s beef that is pounded thin, stuffed with bacon, onions, mustard and pickles, and then braised.
It’s served with red cabbage and dumplings that are perfect for soaking up all the juice.
We also made a delicious and gluten-free German Chocolate Souffle cake. They use hazelnut flour which gives it almost a nutella like flavor. It’s cooked in a water bath so the cake is tender and melts in your mouth.
Topped with freshly made whipped cream, you will not want to share!
Here is the recipe for the rouladen. They used house made pickles but any good quality dill pickle will work. I suggest doubling this recipe because you’ll definitely want leftovers!
