“A firm favourite of mine when I lived in Herford in West Germany. This recipe comes from a German friend of mine who lives in Bavaria, and is delicious served with sour cream, dumplings or noodles - oh yes, don't forget the crusty sourdough bread as well! Although this is nice served with the above accompaniments, it is essentially a one pot meal which is sufficient to feed most hungry families. It can be cooked on the top of the stove or in a crock pot; the latter method is my favourite, especially when I am very busy or I need to go out!”
