Daeg’lbraod (Altmärker pot roast)

Whether it’s a street festival, a big party or a wedding – in the Altmark, the Tiegelbraten is a must. Or as it is called in the dialect: Däg’lbraod. In the past, it was common to bring this dish to the table in three-legged skillets. That’s where the name comes from.
Whereby the Altmärker are of the opinion that the roast tastes better the next day anyway.

The pot roast is a simple dish of beef, lamb, onions and spices. The meat is cooked diced in water. The broth and meat then go into the oven once more, where they are topped with onion rings. It is accompanied by fresh bread, beer and a sip of grain.
