I'm dogsitting for a friend, but when I get home, I'll pull out my German cookbooks and find links for the recipes (in English). And I'll dig through my recipe notebook from when I lived in Germany. I was in the North, so the recipes are influenced by what was readily available. What I remember most is that the quantity of meat to feed a family of six was a lot less than what I was used to as a teenager from MN. We did a lot of one pots with sausage, potatoes, veggies (carrots, onion, leeks--the first time I met a leek was in Germany--I had no clue what they were and woke up one morning with a note asking me to do something for the midday meal and making sure to use up the leeks...). Although my host family was well off, we only had a small fridge, so meat was often brought home from the butcher daily or the fishmonger stopped by. I can't promise all are 30 minutes or less, but might be "crock pot" options. And, I'll dig out Sylvie's sauerkraut one pot. It was very good and that reminds me, I haven't made it for awhile.

Palek paneer comes to mind with a side of Naan bread. I thought I posted my recipe for that last spring...I add chickpeas and tomatoes to make it more filling than just spinach and paneer. I also don't puree the spinach (it works just as well with Swiss Chard or Kale) and I toast/brown the paneer first (I have also made it with tofu that I smoked, but that takes more planning). I use yogurt instead of milk or cream, and of course toast the cumin, etc. It is done in one pan and takes about 30-35 minutes. I have also topped it with a poached egg...Remember, I cook without recipes most of the time, but I do have my take on palek paneer written down because I test drove it and recommended changes. And, sent it to my friend who is married to a man from India for her feedback. That I might be able to find or recover--lost my emails from August 18th back, but I bet my friend still has it or it is on my other computer in My XXXX recipes folder.

CSW, If you don't find the English versions, no worries! German is one of the very few languages where I can muddle through the recipe. I also love paleek paneer, though have never made it. If I can make the Naan, toast /brown paneer, etc all in the one pan where I make it, cool!

PF, I don't believe that I can replace the batteries in this model. :)

Back to one-pot meals. The German recipes I have all start with a base recipe and then you get to add whatever you want. For example, the base recipe starts with a meat, onion, carrot, red cabbage, green cabbage, kohlrabi, water. You simmer that for about 2 hours. Then you can add potatoes, peas, beans, whatever.


Here's a list of the ones we used to make. I particularly liked the paprika cream soup. I also liked the potato soup with ham chunks added. The premise is you make a hearty soup and then you can add sausage, leftover meat, whatever. I also liked making the leek-and-tomato soup, once I knew what a leek was!




Kartoffelsuppe


Bohnenesuppe mit Mettwurst


Huehnersuppe mit Reis


Linsensuppe mit Schweinerippchen


Gemueseeintopf


Erbsensuppe mit Schweinenacken


Erbsensuppe mit Poekelfleish


Erbsensuppen mit Schinkenlkoesschen


Maistopf


Serbisches Reisfleish


Möhren und Bohnen Eintopf


Porree-Topf mit Tomaten


Provencalischer Eintopf


Gemuesetopf


Pichelsteiner


Bunter Reistopf


Vegetarischer Eintopf


Wirsing mit Bauernmettwurst


Paprika Sahnesuppe

Ok, How about this very traditional dish from the north of England. You can use lamb but it's particularly good made with mutton if you can get it.

How to cook the perfect Lancashire hotpot | Life and style | The Guardian

It can be left in the oven all day or it's a classic for hay box cooking.


The word "hotpot" is very common in the UK for this type of dish - it's thought to come from "hotch-potch" a general word for a collection or this and that all thrown together which is what a hotpot is really.

CWS, thank you for the list of German dishes. I have a favorite relative (she's 48 years old) who lived in Germany and the Netherlands for a few years and has fond memories. She doesn't especially like to cook, so I'm wondering if you could recommend one or more of these dishes that's relatively uncomplicated and the ingredients are easily obtained -- she lives in Atlanta now. Thanks.
