Vanillerostbraten (the vanilla roast beef), is an Austrian beef cutlet dish prepared with garlic, salt, pepper, butter, onions and brown bouillon. Vanilla is not included in the recipe, the name comes from past times - when the dish was created vanilla was very expensive and garlic was referred to the vanilla of the poor man (Vanille des kleinen Mannes), hence the name. The beef steak is first marinated with garlic and spices, fried on both sides and then cooked in a sauce made with butter, sauteed onions and brown bouillon. The Vanillerostbraten is normally served with crispy fried potatoes or lettuce.
