I think I deviated from this recipe too much to be able to rate it. I only had a pound of meat so I halved everything else, with the exception of the chicken broth and the sour cream which I only used a quarter of since I did not need a lot of liquid to do spaetzle. This was very flavorful and had more punch then other paprikash that I have had before. hubby and I liked the amount of pepper but the kids would have been happy with less. The ginger gave it a unique taste that I think many others may like but just didn't go with what my expectations of how paprikash should taste. I think I will try this again next winter when I know I am also going to make spaetzle. I might also add that I think that you should make sure everyone knows that this recipe is written to be made with spaetzle in the into because otherwise there is just too much sauce. Oh, and I had to substitute an ice cream Snickers bar for the fudgesicle....it was a great touch! Thanks for sharing. Made for my Babes for ZWT4.
