Strudel
Volga German Strudel simmered in meat stew Argentina Style.
Argentinian strudel dough is basted with melted butter and stretched thinly before rolled into a long rope.
Rolled Strudel is dredged in flour and coiled before cooking.
The coiled strudel is cooked by placing it on top of hot chicken or pork stew, covered and simmered until done.
The cooked Strudel is cut into serving pieces and served with the stew. Delicious!
