Surprise your guests with this hearty and tasty companion to a classic steak. The dish is easily prepared and empty plates are guaranteed.

  • 400 g potatoes
  • 300 g courgettes
  • 600 g red cabbage
  • 100 g young red chard
  • 50 g dried dates (without stones)
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons potato or corn starch
  • 2-3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • salt, pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 150 g KALTBACH Extra Tasty
  • 4 beef steaks
  • 4 sprigs of rosemary
  • 100 ml red wine
  • 300 ml beef stock
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 40 ml port wine
  • 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • Take the steaks out of the fridge beforehand to ensure they reach room temperature before cooking and pre-heat the oven to 200° C (gas mark 4, fan oven: 180° C). Wash, peel and grate the potatoes and courgettes roughly while waiting for the steaks to reach room temperature. Mix the grated vegetables with egg and potato starch, then season the mixture with salt and pepper.
  • Shape the mixture into 12 balls of rösti and then fry the balls in 2 tablespoons of oil. Grate the cheese and then sprinkle it over the rösti before putting the portions on a baking tray. Let the rösti bake for 10 minutes.
  • Dry the steaks before transferring them into strongly heated pan and frying them for between 5 and 8 minutes per side, depending on how well-done you want them to be. Wrap them in aluminium foil and leave them.
  • Wash and dry the rosemary and slice the dates into rings. Add red wine and stock to the meat juice to create a gravy, before adding in rosemary and cooking the mixture for fifteen minutes to reduce it. Then thicken the gravy with starch and leave it cooking on a low flame. 
  • Caramelise the sugar in a pan and add port wine. Add the red cabbage and dates and fry for approximately 5-10 minutes, adding vinegar and leaving to reduce. Season the mixture with salt and pepper to taste, then take the steaks out of the foil and add the remaining liquid to the gravy.
  • Season the steaks with salt and pepper before serving the finished meal with rosemary, the rösti, and red cabbage.
  • Preparation time: approximately 60 minutes (serves 4).
