Beuschel for lunch in Austria

Beuschel for lunch in Austria

After walking through the gorge of the Mendlingtal I ordered at the Hammerherrenhaus a “Beuschel” for lunch. This is a traditional meal especially in Vienna, but one gets it in other parts of Austria too. Generally it includes the lungs and the heart of a calf served with a bread dumpling. There are variations with other plucks too.

How to eat a bread dumpling

In Vienna one often gets a variation named Salonbeuschel. In that case it is served with some additional goulash juice and cream. By the way a bread dumpling won’t be cut by a knife it will always be torn to pieces with the knife and the fork.
