500 gr of beef meat cut to medium cube pieces should be cooked in a beef meat soup (you have a beef soup at the same time, served as an appetizer before rinfleisch, as the main meal). Beef meat take out from the beef soup and serve with cooked potatoes and tomato sauce together. That’s the rinfleisch which takes the origin from the Germans who lived in Vojvodina (Serbia) area in Austro-Hungarian times. Domestic residents, mostly Serbian village people, accepted this recipe, and even modified it a bit. So, they prepared chicken meat cooked in a chicken soup, or cooked pork meat, instead of a beef meat. The other components have been the same.
Really nice, tasty, light and healthy Sundays villagers lunch.
