Nothing we make or bake compares to our grandmother’s cooking. She makes the ultimate comfort food that we all grew up with. My mother’s maternal grandmother made the best brisket. I attempted to replicate it numerous times but always failed in one way or another. Perhaps the recipe was too complicated, I didn’t use the correct temperature, or my spices were incorrect. I’m not sure.

However, this recipe is ridiculously simple to prepare and consistently delicious. On her videos, a youtube Lieblingsrezepte reveals all of her grandmother’s recipes. They’re all so simple that anyone can do them.


For this recipe, you’ll need:

  • Potatoes – 1 kg (2 lbs)
  • Ground Beef – 450 g (16 oz)

  • Vegetable oil
  • Dill butter (or just dill weed and some butter)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Paprika
  • Garlic powder
  • Diced tomatoes – 14 oz (400 g)
