    Made this for New Years Eve - Loved it too much!! We used the juice from the kraut instead of the broth, added a tsp of worcestershire, a little black pepper, and garlic salt. Excellent!!

    This was easy/quick to make and had a lot of flavor. It was hard to keep the filling on the bun. I reduced the recipe to just one third and I got six sandwiches.
