The taste of this stew was good, but I felt it needed more liquid. After stirring this a couple of times, I added some water because it was starting to stick to the pan. I would guess that more tomato sauce and a broth would be better choices so that it wouldn't dilute the delicate seasonings. The sausage was especially good with the caraway seeds. Thanks Mimi.
