Mader's Kassler Rippchen

1 smoked and cured pork loin (about 3 to 4 pounds)
Whole cloves (about 20)
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter
1/2 cup flour
Dumplings (see recipe)

Place meat in medium-size roasting pan with drip tray. Add 1/2-inch water to bottom of pan. Insert cloves into top of roast, placing them every square inch. Evenly sprinkle top of meat with sugar.

Roast, covered, in 350-degree oven about 20 minutes per pound. Meat should reach 165 degrees when tested with meat thermometer. Uncover meat during last 30 minutes of cooking time.

When meat is done, remove from pan; set aside in warm place. Remove drip tray.

Combine butter with flour; mix until smooth. Gradually add to drippings in pan and cook, stirring regularly, over medium heat until thickened, about 3 minutes. Gravy should be medium to thin consistency.

Serve meat with gravy-topped dumplings. Makes 6 to 8 servings.

Mader's dumplings:

4 to 5 russet potatoes, unpeeled
1 to 1 1/2 cups flour (divided)
1 egg
1 tablespoon salt
Pinch of black pepper
1/2 teaspoon grated onion
Stuffing croutons (do not use seasoned croutons)

Cook potatoes in boiling water until tender; drain and cool. Refrigerate overnight. Next day, peel and grate potatoes. Add 1 cup flour, egg, salt, pepper and onion; mix until smooth. Add additional flour gradually to form dumpling mixture that will hold together. Form into balls the size of an egg.

Into each dumpling, insert 2 to 3 croutons, then again form into a ball. When ready to cook, drop dumplings into gently boiling salted water and cook 8 to 10 minutes. Dumplings are done when they turn and float to top and are no longer gummy inside.
