“Gröschtl”, or fried potatoes and meat, was originally a dish which used the leftovers of the Sunday roast and was popular amongst Tyrolean farmers. It is typically eaten with smoked and cooked pork, potatoes and onions and topped with a fried egg which belongs to a real Tiroler Gröstl as much as the yolk does to the egg. Have we made your mouth water yet?



For the Gröstl:

  • 500 g potatoes (boiled and sliced)
  • 1 onion (finely chopped)
  • 150 g bacon (diced)
  • butter
  • 150 g beef (cooked)
  • salt
  • a little caraway (ground)
  • chives (chopped, to garnish)
  • 1 garlic clove (optional, crushed)
  • marjoram (optional)

Fried egg topping:

  • 4 eggs
  • butter

Directions for Tiroler Gröstl

  1. Cook, peel and slice potatoes.
  2. Finely chop onions and bacon and fry in butter in a pan. Add boiled beef and fry.
  3. Add sliced potatoes to the pan and fry everything together. Season with salt and caraway.
  4. In a second pan, fry eggs in a little butter. Serve the Gröstl topped with the fried eggs and finely chopped chives.


Classic Tyrolean Gröstl also tastes great with roast pork or veal leftovers. For a more intense flavour, add garlic and fresh marjoram. A further, similar recipe idea is GRENADIERMARSCH for which you simply mix pasta and sausage with the Gröstl and replace the fried egg with a beaten egg.


Austrian cuisine likes to experiment yet before we make something new, we usually empty the fridge first. Leftovers were always used up first and this led to the creation of many tasty new dishes. We Austrians call these down to earth delicacies, which have been discovered quite by chance and which we wouldn’t want to be without today, “Restlessen” (meals made using the leftovers).
To the typical „Austrian Restlessen“ belongs also our tasty Farmer’s feast and our popular Gröstl-“Family” also includes the traditionally
Erdäpfelgröstl (Fried Potatoes with Sausage and Bacon) and spicy Blunzengröstl.

Bauernschmaus – pork belly, smoked meat, frankfurters, dumplings and sauerkraut – is real down to earth and hearty Austrian fare.

Delicious fried potatoes are an indispensable part of traditional home cooking – whether in the inn, at the ski hut or in the alpine hut. Hearty, down-to-earth enjoyment is guaranteed with fried potatoes – and STAY SPICED ! has set itself the goal with its fried potato spice preparation of creating a mixture that makes fried potatoes taste as brilliant at home as they do on holiday in Austria.

Untreated sea salt, caraway and pepper give the composition a slightly spicy flavour, fine spices such as parsley, marjoram, nutmeg and onions round off the taste perfectly. The highlight are the roasted onions, which save the tearful onion slicing with the fried potato preparation. Attention: addictive potential! Our tip: The STAY SPICED !
