Bohemian Beef Dinner

When I was growing up, one of my favorite things to do was to help my mother in the kitchen while she prepared traditional Czech dishes like this. It's a savory stick-to-your-ribs meal with beef and sauerkraut covered in a creamy sauce. —Carl & Isobel Wanasek, Rogers, Arkansas

    This was excellent. I used chuck eye steak and beef broth instead of water. Stirred about every 15 minutes for 2 hours - each time adding more broth to keep beef from sticking to the pan. It may not be as authentic, but next time I will probably add some red wine and maybe some carrots and mushrooms. But great as is.
