"Camie, I almost got homesick. I have not made this recipe in a long time, but will make it this weekend. You got my Grandmothers Recipe down to one missing ingredient. A couple of Bayleaves. Now to authenticate this German meal even more, you have to have sweet/sour Red Cabbage with it. Guten Appetit (good appetite)"
