5 Most Popular German Foods


– [Narrator] Because
you loved our last video about Germany, we
know you wanted more. And so without further ado,
we bring you the best foods with the original German
stamp of quality approval. Here are the top five
most popular German foods. (speaking foreign language) Weisswurst mit sussem senf, or white sausage
with sweet mustard, is a Bavarian specialty
that is, in many ways, emblematic of Bavarian
culture and tradition. A type of bruhwurst,
or scalded sausage, it is most often served
with sweet mustard and a type of soft
pretzel called brezel. It can be served at breakfast,
rather surprisingly, but can be eaten at
any time of the day, which is why a large
stein of beer is something that almost always
accompanies it. Weisswurst can be eaten
a variety of ways, from the standard of
cutting them into pieces and dipping them
into sweet mustard, to the traditional
Bavarian way called zuzeln, or sucking, in Bavarian, which involves sucking the
meat out of the sausage. But however you decide
to eat your weisswurst, we know you’ll love it. Sauerbraten, or pickled
roast, is a near universal German specialty that everyone
needs to try at least once. It’s essentially a type of
pot roast that can be made from lamb, beef, pork,
venison, and even horse. Normally the meet is
marinated for several days in a variety of spices
along with vinegar, wine, and other seasonings, and when finally served,
has a very distinct flavor, with the meat being incredibly
tender and delicious due to days of marinating. It’s often served alongside
the traditional German side dish called knodel,
which is a type of dumpling often made of dough
or potato starch, and pickled red cabbage
with bits of apple. Sauerbraten is
considered by some to be the preeminent national
dish of Germany, and once you taste it,
you’ll surely know why. Rote grutze, or literally,
red grit, is a sweet dish traditionally made
in Northern Germany. It’s usually made
with a type of starch, sometimes potato, or more
traditionally semolina, and is then mixed with
what are sometimes called red summer berries,
suck as red currant, blackberries, black current,
raspberries, strawberries and others of the kind. The preparation is simple
and involves mixing the berries with the grit
by boiling them together and mixing them with sugar,
similar to a pudding. The result is a simple but
unbelievably sweet dessert that is both
mouth-watering and typical of Northern German cuisine. Curry-wurst is the
ultimate fast food dish originating in Germany. And few Germans will deny
the popularity of this food and its symbolic value
or its cult status. Served with a bratwurst,
or fried port sausage which is usually
cut into pieces, and often accompanied by
a side of fries or pomace, and sometimes a
brotchen, or bread roll, the sausage is often
drenched in ketchup and curry powder to give
it a distinct taste. It might not be the
healthiest food out there, but there are few things
as finger-licking good as a giant curry-wurst to go. Lebkcuchen is a traditional
sweet German baked good that is enormously
popular during Christmas. It comes in a wide
variety of types. Typically it’s made
with honey and a mixture of spices such as
ginger and cloves, as well as nuts and
sometimes candied fruit. Lebkcuchen has a truly
unique taste of sweetness and a kind of strange,
but delightful, taste of spice
reminiscent of cinnamon, but one you can really only
experience for yourself. In addition to a
variety of ingredients, there’re also hard
and soft types. Lebkcuchen is usually only
eaten around Christmas, but it tastes so good that
we’ll be that you’ll want to be eating it year round. For more top lists like
