This was an awesome recipe. I used beef steaks instead of pork because my husband found the recipe first and told me to buy beef but, it was amazing. The kids want it again.

Not a bad recipe at all. I thought my sauce came out a bit bland. I will probably use another bouillon cube next time around. December 12, 2010

This is probably one of the best recipes on recipezaar. I made this last night for my family and company. Everyone loved this dish and devoured every bit of it. I even left out the paprika because we did not have any in the house. Made this dish with Spaetzle (German noodles). OUTSTANDING!
