Spiessbraten, Idar-Oberstein Style

30 mins (prep 15, cooking 15)
5 ingredients
2 servings
This is a traditional recipe from my home town, Idar-Oberstein, in Germany. The meat is grilled on hardwood fire, using a metal tripod with a fire pan attached to the bottom of the tripod legs and the actual grilling surface hanging from the top of the tripod. If you are interested in a picture of this type of grill, let me know and I will post one. You can use any kind of meat with this recipe. Even half chickens turn out wonderful. Our favorite is pork tenderloin, however. The spice measurements are per pound of meat, so you cannot go wrong if you stick to these measurements. We figure that one pound of meat serves two people nicely. The "pinches" in the measurements are my Mom's pinches: pick up as much as your thumb, index and middle finger can hold.
