Eintopf means "one pot". There are as many recipes for Eintopt as there are cooks in Germany, but this one is my favorite. I use a loop of smoked turkey sausage to cut down on the fat. Also, the frozen French-cut green beans are rarely available in my small town, so I often use the canned variety. They are almost as good.
- Put the first six ingredients into a pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 1 hour.
- Add the herbs.
- Adjust the seasoning with salt, pepper and Maggi seasoning.
- Creativity is encouraged.
We loved this! I cooked this in the crock pot using turkey sausage,baby carrots,creamer potatoes with the skin on,sweet onions and all chicken broth. I also added garlic. Thanks so much for posting!
This is a fantastic base recipe for an easy weeknight dinner. It's great as written, but I can also imagine it would be great with some fresh tomatoes, squash, or any herbs you might happen to have around. I picked a little dill from my garden for this, and it was wonderful. I used chicken stock for mine, and thought it added a nice body to the broth.
