Growing up in a German family, we had Sauerbraten on special occasions, like birthday dinners, company, etc. My mom always made it with potato dumplings and my sister and I would just go crazy over that stuff. I ate some wonderful German cooking growing up, especially by my grandmother.

Mom's side of the family is German and dad's side of the family is Dutch.

I just assumed he was chiming in about a type of beef stew, since that's what we were talking about. Either that or he forgot to add the pic.

My oma made stuffed kartoffelklosse to have with the sauerbraten. I usually have this as my birthday dinner and make extra kartoffelklosse to slice and fry next morning for breakfast. They are great with eggs and something different from home fries. Rotkohl is the other side dish.

No, I don't really follow those. But every now and then, you should still make yourself a nice slap-up meal.

Since my husband passed away in September, it's been difficult to learn how to cook for just my son and I. I still sometimes make enough for 3 people.

My hub absolutely adored German red cabbage. Our favorite German restaurant is called Hofbrauhaus and they have awesome Rotkohl, wonderful fried cabbage, delicious German potato salad, the best Schnitzel, etc. And they serve Weisswurst the traditional way, poached and served in a beautiful traditional pot with soft pretzels and sweet Bavarian mustard. That mustard is to die for and I buy it online, always having it on hand.
