This is a recipe I was thrilled to learned in Culinary School.
It is one of the easiest recipes you'll ever find and you can feel confident about the simplicity by calling it tradition.
This is an authentic, traditional German Stew. Cooking time varies but it consistently peaks at about 90 minutes. Just enough time to throw together before the kids get off the bus & have ready for dinner.Or you can throw this in your slow cooker in the morning on low to cook all day.
If you're wanting to sway away from tradition and are looking to kick this recipe up a notch, brown your meat in the pan first. You can also add your favorite herbs & spices to change it up. Do what you love and have fun with it. Give it a try and let me know how it turns out.
