puddin's suggestion of a Labskaus meal look right on to me. Here is the explanation:
Labskaus is a specialty from Northern Germany and in particular from the cities of Bremen, Lübeck, and Hamburg. The main ingredients are salted meat or corned beef, potatoes, herring, onion and beetroot. The meal is traditionally prepared by boiling the beef in broth and then mincing it with the beetroot, onions, boiled potatoes and herring (some recipes use ham). Finally the base is fried in lard. Countless variations of the dish exist.
