Ann Christensen of Mesa, Arizona shares this stick-to-your-ribs German dish that's sure to satisfy even the biggest appetite at your house. Sliced apple and apple juice lend mellowing sweetness to the tangy sauerkraut, flavorful bratwurst, red potatoes and bacon. Serve it alongside rye bread.
I received this recipe years ago and have put it to excellent use ever since. This beef and mushroom dish is such a hit with our family it's become a tradition for birthdays and Christmas.

Until I entered kindergarten, we spoke German in our home and kept many old-world customs. We always enjoyed the food of our family's homeland. Mom usually prepared this for my birthday dinner.—Helga Schlape, Florham Park, New Jersey
These moist tender chops get delicious flavor from Dijon mustard, onions and apple slices. Or try replacing the apples with pineapple rings for an appealing variation. I like to serve mashed sweet potatoes with this main course, along with a simple salad.
For a change-of-pace dinner menu, I pull out this sensational bratwurst recipe. The caraway and other seasonings give this meaty main dish wonderful old-world flair. My husband thinks it's terrific.

Apples are a sweet and surprising addition to tender potatoes and leftover bratwurst in this stovetop supper. "Having grown up in the Midwest, I love a meat-and-potatoes meal," notes Marcia Graves-Wilbur from Indian Harbour Beach, Florida. "If I can make it all in one pot, it's an added bonus."
"I have tried many different ways to use up leftover roast beef, but my husband says this is the best!" reports Emma Magielda from Amsterdam, New York. "I experimented until I came up with all the right ingredients for this nicely seasoned dish."
