"Very tasty. I served it with egg noodles instead of pasta. The only thing I would do next time is thicken it a bit more so it clings better to the noodle or pasta."

"I have tripled this recipe to feed my large family of 7 children. This has been a hit with all, which is rarely the case for so many people! I left out the caraway seeds knowing that some do not like them. I substituted whole wheat flour, and reduced the vinegar. I used canned venison instead of the beef. It was a hit."
