This was fabulous! The flavors blend very nicely together! I omitted the caraway seeds and mushrooms, but made as directed and even hubby thought this was fabulous! Thanks for the great weeknight meal! It does take a lot longer than the 30 minutes stated at the top of the recipe. (It takes about 1 hour and 20 minutes to make.)

This is a 5 star plus recipe and I made it in the Slow Cooker. It is so tasty; I did add crushed garlic and omitted the caraways seeds but followed everything else. What a great combination! Since I cook mostly for 2 now, I love the fact that I have 2 other meals ready in the freezer for us. I made this for WT4 Canadian Crockpot Challenge. Thanks for posting. Rita

Too many flavors going on. Next time I would not use caraway seed or paprika maybe use a little hot sauce.
