Big News! The Mailman put a ring on it! This week's awesomeness includes being 20 lbs down AND a ridiculously gorgeous engagement ring! I'm beyond thrilled. I guess now it's time for UFG Bridal Bootcamp!
I spent some time in Germany in high school and ate. a. lot. ha! I think I gained about 15 pounds that summer! Fresh bologna, fresh rye bread and fresh butter - nothing's better!
My time in Germany is the inspiration for today's recipe. I recently found out that The Mailman likes cabbage! I thought he hated it - and I love it - so I never made it. Well, my friends - game. changer.
I love this recipe. It uses a bit of beer (it is German, after all!), so make sure you use a good one. No Miller or Bud Light here, ok? I used one of my favorite Witbiers, and I suggest you do the same.
In Germany, these would usually use beef or pork, but I ground my own chicken and put in some mushrooms to keep the moisture in.
Recipe after the jump!
