This dish has delighted guests as well as family. I don’t remember where this recipe came from, but it has been a family favorite for many years. It’s an excellent German dish, similar to sauerbraten, but you don’t have to marinate the meat for several days. The meat is very flavorful and tender.
This is a truly authentic "Old World recipe"—friends of our family who moved here from Poland gave it to my mother years ago. It's been a favorite Sunday dinner with all of us ever since then. I've found that it's always a hit at potluck dinners, too. After my husband and I moved to our dairy farm, I discovered that this hearty, one-dish dinner was a perfect one for our busy schedule...and that any leftovers taste even better the second day!
With big, tender chunks of sausage, potatoes and carrots, this meal-in-one has old-world flavor that will satisfy the heartiest of appetites. "A co-worker often made a big pot of this for our office staff, and it always disappeared in a hurry," notes Joalyce Graham of St. Petersburg, Florida.
"This thick, tangy soup has been one of our favorites ever since my daughter gave me the recipe years ago," says Janice Mitchell of Aurora, Colorado. "It's satisfying any time, but especially wonderful on a chilly evening."
