I just prepared this for an Octoberfest party a a cusine group . It was amazingly simple and quite good BUT I had to make a few adjustment to the gravy. The original receipe left the gravy quite sour. I changre the # of gingersnapsfrom 12 to 20 and the sugar to 1/3c vs. 1/4. The result was NOT SWEET but less sour with enough sweetness that the 17 women at the part asked for the recipe!
Excellent , Simple to make, old world flavors. Serve with noodles or Potatoe Dumplings and Braised Red Cabbage for an authentic German Dinner. Chazzzz
Very good interesting international dish with quite different tastes than the usual standard American cooking! The flavors were intense and delicious. Served with hot butter noodles. I gave it three stars since the children wouldn't eat it (didn't like the smell or taste) and the leftovers have been ignored, even for a nice sandwich! Definitely a four star grown-up meal, but a three star family meal.
I was making this for new years but ended up getting sick so it marinated two additional days I marinated mine in a zip-lock .opened the bag The smell was so fabulous I could barley stand it and it has been torture all day smelling it cook. In the end I think that I over cooked it but it was so very good I will be making this again. Thank you
Delicious!! I followed the directions exactly and my husband (from Germany) LOVED it! We served it with Semmel Knodel and it was perfect. The only thing I didn't do the same was at the end when taking the meat out - I didn't strain the liquid since it had nice small pieces of meat in it. I just followed the rest of the directions and it was delish! Definitely a keeper!
