Schwaebische Maultaschen.

There is hardly a dish that is so characteristic of the Swabian food such as Maultaschen. And here, too, applies what has already been said in the Tortellini: this recipe there is not, there are so many variations and interpretations as there are Swabian families. Here is a classic version with a Boiled meat will be presented, who would like to (and I) can personally braising the meat but also, both variants are described in the recipe. The braised version has the “disadvantage” that you need additional sections from the bark to the required meat broth. The legendary monk, which the mouth bag once in heretic behind list developed by the meat in the almost time to hide before the Lord, this was, at the time, of course, not possible, and also the (allegedly!) to thrift inclined Swabia, this should be clearly wasteful-French preparation, a thorn in the eye. There is, however, preferable quite the boiled method, because the Stew meat is tender. It is the social component of the mouth, bag-making remains to emphasize: these are most successful on a free day with plenty of leisure, and in the presence of friends!
