The recipe was great! We had to use a different kind of potato and it must have been softer because instead of German Potato Salad we had Mashed German Potatoes. But the flavors and textures were still excellent! Thanks for the recipe!!

This had a good beef flavor and we did like it, but it was too sweet for us and a little bit plain. Adding extra vinegar, pepper and parsley, and some (low fat) bacon bits did bring it closer to our expectation.

I thought this was good, and DH really enjoyed it. I'm not sure I'm super-familiar with the flavor we were going for, but per DH it tasted pretty authentic :). I did have to use chicken broth b/c it was all I had; I imagine beef or veg would make a big difference. For what it's worth, I personally preferred the recipe served lukewarm.
