Made as written and found this to be a very delicious meal, I served this over Recipe #441475. The only thing I can fault is the meat doesn't come out tender, I would recommend once everything is done, cover and let simmer for about an hour. Thanks! Made for More Than Sauerkraut & Dumplings in the German Forum.

I've been tracing my roots for at least 10 years. One branch came to America just after the Mayflower in the early 1600s. Others came in the early 1700s, late 1890s. So, my American roots run pretty deep and I am deeply patriotic. Just wish someone had thought to same me some land!</p>
