Certainly! Here’s a recipe for “Schaschlik mit Pommes,” which is a German-style shashlik (kebab) with fries.

Schaschlik mit Pommes


For Schaschlik:
  • 500g beef or pork, cut into bite-sized cubes
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Wooden skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes
For Pommes (Fries):
  • 4 large potatoes, peeled and cut into fries
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Salt to taste


  1. In a bowl, mix together vegetable oil, tomato paste, red wine vinegar, minced garlic, paprika, dried oregano, salt, and pepper. This will be the marinade.
  2. Place the cubed meat in a large resealable plastic bag or a bowl. Pour the marinade over the meat, making sure it’s well coated. Seal the bag or cover the bowl and let it marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight for better flavor.
  3. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
  4. Thread the marinated meat onto the soaked wooden skewers, alternating with diced onions, bell peppers, and cherry tomatoes.
  5. Grill the skewers for about 10-15 minutes, turning occasionally, until the meat is cooked to your desired level of doneness and has a nice char.
Pommes (Fries):
  1. Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or a large, deep pan to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Rinse the cut potatoes in cold water to remove excess starch. Pat them dry with paper towels.
  3. Fry the potato sticks in batches until golden brown and crispy, about 3-4 minutes per batch. Remove them with a slotted spoon and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess oil.
  4. Sprinkle the fries with salt while they are still hot.


Serve the hot Schaschlik skewers with a side of crispy Pommes (fries). You can also serve it with a dollop of sour cream or a fresh salad for a complete and delicious meal.

Enjoy your German-style Schaschlik mit Pommes!
