The German Dish

The German DishThe German Dish has been a specialty in my family for as long as I can remember. In fact, I think it has been passed down through several generations and can be traced to the Ruhr Valley in an area known as Westphalia. I love this dish because all of its flavor comes from a few basic ingredients. I also like it because you can prepare a generous portion for between $10 and $15. As an added bonus, when you are cooking, it it will make your house smell great and everyone will think you really know how to cook. Give it a try. You will be amazed at how simple and easy a great dish can be.

Note: This recipe uses Polish kielbasas because the German version of this sausage may be difficult to find in your average grocery store.

Ingredients:
1 16oz. Polska kielbasa, cut into 4 inch pieces
2 large potatoes, pealed and cut into 2 inch pieces
3 medium carrots, cut in half lengthwise
2 ribs celery, diced
2 medium onions, diced
1 tspn kosher salt
fresh ground black pepper
3/4 tbsp beef bullion
3 cups water

Preparation:
  1. Add all of the ingredients to a large pot or Dutch oven. Heat ingredients over medium-low heat for about three hours.
  2. If water starts to boil, reduce heat to low.
  3. After potatoes and carrots can become tender, remove the kielbasas and set aside.
  4. With a potato masher, mash all of the vegetables together in the pot until they are well combined.
  5. Add the kielbasas back to the pot.
  6. Continue to simmer over low heat until most of the remaining water has been reduced.
  7. Serve with hot, spicy or Dijon mustard on the side.
