The Ennstaler Steirerkas is a piquant and spicy sour milk cheese.

This speciality is made according to a traditional recipe in the Käserei Gröbming: sour skimmed milk is boiled in large copper kettles and the resulting cheese curd is collected in linen cheese cloth and the whey is squeezed out. Then the crumbly cheese is salted, peppered and pressed into a mould. It is left to ripen for 4 weeks.

Since the Ennstaler Steirerkas is a crumbly cheese, it can be frozen without affecting the consistency or taste. If the cheese in the packaging is slightly damp, it is possible that the pieces clump together after freezing and thawing. It can be easily crumbled again.

Special cultures are used in the production of the Ennstaler Steirerkas which can give the cheese different colours.

Traditional handmade cheeses result in different dry masses, which is why this cheese can vary slightly in appearance, consistency, smell and taste from batch to batch. Dry and light cheese has a slightly milder taste. Cheese with a slightly moist consistency on the other hand is darker and has a stronger taste. The original Ennstaler Styrian cheese also displays different optical ripeness characteristics.

Whether in soups, spreads, Ennstaler Steirerkasnocken (dumplings) or as an alternative to Parmesan - the Ennstaler Steirerkas can be used in many ways and adds a wonderful flavour to every meal!

Ennstaler Steirerkasnocken

250 g flour
2 eggs
1/8 l water
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 - 4 tbsp butter
1 large onion
200 g Steirerkas

Mix the flour with salt, eggs and water and beat with a wooden spoon until a smooth dough is formed. Let rest for about 10 minutes. Place the dough on a damp cutting board and using a damp knife, scrape off thin strips of the dough - "Nocken" - into a pot of salted, boiling water. Bring back to the boil and skim off. Blanch the cooked Nocken (dough strips) in a bowl of cold water and put aside. Once all the dough has been used up, heat some butter in a frying pan and lightly sauté the finely-sliced onion. Add the Steirerkas, salt, pepper and fry until the cheese has a medium brown colour. Add the Nocken, fry for a further 3-4 minutes and stir.

Serve with a beer and a side of green salad dressed with some Styrian pumpkin seed oil.

Process the wheat flour with the water and the dry yeast into a dough and beat with a wooden spoon until you see bubbles. Mix in the Steirerkas, caraway and herbs.
