This is amazing! I love the flavors together. You have the sweetness of the celery & carrots, the smoky sausage (I use turkey sausage) and subtle heat from the chili powder... the gingersnap flavor is subtle & wonderful as well. My mom says this is very much like a German dish (Sauerbraten) she had growing up but with a twist. Serve with a crusty slice of rye bread and ENJOY! Man I love this!
