German Turkey Stew Hunter Style

german turkey stew hunter style

The Turkey Stew Hunter Style, in German “Putengeschnetzeltes Jäger Art” (yes, a very difficult word to say), makes a delicious meal. It is served with Spätzle or if you like with the wide ribbon pasta.
A very famous and similar stew is the Zurich Geschnetzeltes which is using sliced veal strips, white wine, and heavy cream.
Whatever ingredients you use for the ragout, everyone will enjoy it. You can vary it like no other dish. Use veal or pork, chicken or beef, add vegetable or tomato paste or use curry or heavy cream. Happy Cooking!
