Austrian Recipes


Austrian cuisine is ultimately derived from that of the multi-ethnic Austro-Hungarian Empire. Consequently Austria has managed to incorporate Bavarian, Czech, Hungarian, Italian and Jewish influences into its food. Outside of the country, Austrian cuisine is principally known for Wiener schnitzel (which translated literally from the German, means "Viennese cutlet"), and of course the many excellent varieties of pastries and desserts that Austria has produced.

Some popular Austrian dishes include:
  • Wiener schnitzel - A thin slice of tenderized meat, dipped in wheat flour, eggs and breadcrumbs and then fried in butter or lard. Traditional Wiener schnitzel is made with veal, but pork is often used now a days, and there are even variants made using turkey. Wiener schnitzel is traditionally served with potato salad and a slice of lemon as accompaniments.

  • Tafelspitz - Beef boiled with root vegetables - the rump of a young ox is typically used. Tafelspitz is the name of both the dish, and the particular meat cut.

  • Knödel - Dumplings made from potatoes (Kartoffelknödel) or dried/stale bread with milk and egg (Semmelknödel). A variation made with chopped bacon as well (Speckknödel) is sometimes used as an ingredient in soups.

  • Goulash - The Austrian version of the traditional Hungarian meat stew. Made from beef, onions, and red peppers, and flavored with paprika.

  • Vanillekipferl - A traditional Viennese biscuit, vanilla-flavored, and made from ground almonds or hazelnuts. The biscuits are crescent-shaped, and are supposed to have been originally created to celebrate a victory of the Austrian army over the Ottoman Turks in one of the many wars between the countries.

  • Palatschinken - A traditional Austrian thin pancake. Palatschinken are traditionally filled with apricot jam and sprinkled with sugar, but other fillings, sometimes even savoury fillings, may also be used.

    Palatschinken

  • Kaiserschmarrn - A dessert made from shredded pancakes with raisins, served with fruit compotes and sprinkled with powdered sugar.

    Kaiserschmarrn

  • Apple strudel (German: Apfelstrudel) - A pastry-based dessert. A pastry jacket is filled with apples, sugar and raisins. Cinnamon and/or rum may also be added for flavor.

  • Sachertorte - A chocolate cake with a layer of apricot jam in the middle and dark chocolate icing. The cake was originally invented in 1832 by Franz Sacher, a Jewish baker, who was in the employee of the famous statesman, Prince Klemens Wenzel von Metternich.
