Let me comment it with the words of KC & The Sunhine Band "That's the way, aha aha I like it aha aha." :-) Great taste! The beef is soft and melts in your mouth and you can freeze and microwave it, if there are left-overs.

This is a great authentic recipe! Anyone who says differently doesn't know what it's supposed to taste like. I was born and raised in Schwarzwald and this is exactly how I remember. Served with homemade spaetzle. Thank you!

This recipe turned out to be a very tasteful family meal that you want to keep and enjoy repeadely. The only addition i made in the last was 5 mi.of cookingt was to add half of a jalapeno pepper cut very tiny to give it a little more zest to meet our personal taste. Thanks

Excellent! My family is German and they all loved it. Instead of peppers, I cooked mushrooms separately and added them right before serving to keep it from getting to soupy. Served with spaetzle. A+

I would highly recommend this dish. We had it over noodles and the whole family liked it. I used a chuck roast and was careful to simmer it gently and the texture was the best I've ever achieved in a stew (I'll never again use stew meat to save time.) My two cents: you could use less bacon without loss of quality, a dash of cayenne pepper spices it nicely, I prefer the red peppers chopped fine and added just after the onions. Thanks Heatherfeather!

This was a wonderfully delicious dinner! I did use less broth because I had less meat, but I simmered it in the oven in my cast iron casserole dish for 2 hours at 300F and it turned out great, the sauce was thick and rich, we ate it over wide German egg noodles.

My husband loved this recipe. I used a lot more paprika 2 tablespoons(I used Penzey's paprika and added some elements from their recipe for goulash). My husband doesn't like noodles, so added potatoes (four potatoes cut into chunks) about 30 minutes before the stew was done. Delicious!

We really like this and will be having it again! I had to used dried margoram. I added extra paprika in the last third of the cooking process. I made homemade noodles but this recipe has peaked my interest to try making spaetzle next time. Thanks!
