Savory flavors blend beautifully in this hearty recipe from field editor Ruth Ann Stelfox of Raymond, Alberta. “This stew can also be made in a slow cooker,“ she notes. “In a pinch, I use a ring of garlic bologna cut into chunks in place of the pork shoulder.“
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.
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."
This isn't really an ethnic dish...we named it "Bohemian" because my husband is of Bohemian extraction—and he loves this pot roast! I love it, too, because it's so easy to prepare and serve. You can put this "meal in one dish" together to cook, then practically forget about it until dinnertime. Coleslaw is a great accompaniment.
SINCE our three daughters are now away from home, I cook just for the two of us. However, sometimes I like to prepare larger amounts while I'm in the kitchen so I can freeze some for later.
