Reviews for Creamy Bratwurst Stew
"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!"
"Excellent. Subbed sweet potatoes for regular potatoes. Warm, hearty, and heart warming! Will be making again!"
"My husband and young children love this hearty meal. It is easy to prepare and full of flavor."
"Trying this tonight - but half brats and half fresh polish plus 2 cup shredded red cabbage."
"YUM!!!!! This is so good! Great Sunday dinner recipe."
"Delicious! We loved this crock pot recipe for a family dinner."
"My whole family loves it!"
"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!"
"One of our winter favorites! My slow-cooker needed much less than 7 hours, though."
