  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

"This a great filling stew with lots of flavor! The only thing I did different was omit the water later in the recipe, and used regular milk, since I didn't have any 1/2 and 1/2 on hand. Mixed the cornstarch with that and it came out perfect! Definitely a keeper here!"

"This was very good!! Next time I will reduce the black pepper to 1/8 tsp. It seemed a little overwhelming. covered the natural taste of the bratwurst a bit. Otherwise, I wouldn't change a thing!!"

"We liked this too. It is nice and thick and it is a good change of pace from most of the regular stews I make. It is in my recipe file and I will make it years to come. Thanks for a good dish!"
