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.

How much Maggi Seasoning are you supposed to put in this? Also, what fine herbs are you to use?

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.
