      I wanted a nice German dish to serve this weekend so I chose this one. It got mixed reviews. Personally, I feel it needs more seasoning, however others liked it. I think that it depends pretty heavily on the seasoning of the broth you use. Next time I would use sausage instead of pork and a stronger flavored broth.
