Delicious. I made the recipe as directed using pre sliced fajita meat. The sauce was wonderful but the meat was tough and I paid $7 a pound for it!

Made as written and found this to be a very delicious meal, I served this over Recipe #441475. The only thing I can fault is the meat doesn't come out tender, I would recommend once everything is done, cover and let simmer for about an hour. Thanks! Made for More Than Sauerkraut & Dumplings in the German Forum.
