Schweinefilet-Pilz Auflauf (Pork Mushroom Casserole)

pork mushroom casserole

This Schweinefilet-Pilz Auflauf (German for Pork Mushroom Casserole) is a recipe by Fabi’s Opa. I had to improvise a little because some of the ingredients are not the same in the U.S., but I was thrilled with how it turned out! Truly delicious. It was really flavorful, and the meat was so tender. If you can find wild mushroom soup at the store already made or from a packet, you can use that in the recipe to save some time. I made a thick, creamy mushroom soup from scratch so it took me longer to prepare this dish. Danke Opa!

This week has been crazy for me! I started my General Medicine rotation on Monday, and the hours have been long. I miss getting a full night’s rest. I miss my kitchen. I miss having time to relax! For the next 5 weeks, I will only have 1 day off every week (and even then I should be reading/working on stuff). I just keep telling myself I will get through it. Week #1 already went by really fast.

    This German casserole looks very comforting and warming. I’m super-impressed that with those long hours and all the demands on your time that you’re able to keep up with any kind of cooking. I think I would be ordering takeaway xx
