Tiroler Gröstl – a traditional dish with potatoes, beef and fried egg

A few days ago I posted on how we make beef broth in Austria. I did this because I needed boiled beef for a traditional dish from the federal province of Tyrol, which is situated in the west of Austria.

Today I finally made this Gröstl, which was originally a way to use the remnants of the Sunday roast: a mishmash of beef, potatoes, spices and herbs, with a bit of bacon. Frugal and very tasty and easy to prepare.

And very recommendable for foggy, rainy and windy days in fall.

This recipe serves two. As a side dish I suggest a green salad or warm cabbage salad.

You need:
