    twissis's Note:

    *Schweinefleisch und Bier-Eintopf* in German, this recipe is from *Modern German Food* by Roz Denny. Roz said "In several parts of Germany, breadcrumbs are used to thicken soups & stews, a brilliant idea that adds a delicious rich & slightly nutty flavour, esp when beer is used instead of stock. This recipe uses shoulder of pork, but works equally well w/beef or veal & is a wonderful warming casserole." *Enjoy* ! (15 min was allowed for ingredient prep)

      Very tasty! I cut the recipe down to serve two, using a 1/2 of a pork tenderloin. Loved the use of rye bread to thicken! Made for Family Picks ZWT #6

      Being in a german mode this stew just hit the spot. I made it as written , but did add a couple of parsnips to the mix as I love them in stews. I used guiness stout for my beer in the dish and also added a wee bit of brown sugar to mellow it out a bit. I cooked it in a cast iron dutch oven in the oven and it just came out delicious. Served this with mashed potatoes. Thanks for the recipe, will definately make again.

      I made this for 10 servings. The only thing I did differently is when all the ingrediants were put together I put them in a roasting pan and threw it in the over for about 4 hours @ 325 degrees. I had too many things to do and just want to sit down and eat when it was done. I served the dish with mashed potatoes. My husband as well as my company loved this dish. The flavors were wonderful!!!! According to all it was #1 for the year. Thanks f/posting this dish. :)
