Fellingshäuser Sausage Goulash

The Fellingshäuser sausage goulash comes from the recipe collection of the Leib family from Fellingshausen in the German region of Hesse. Karoline Leib must have prepared this dish from time to time in her small kitchen in the house, which brought variety to the otherwise rather repetitive everyday meal of various soups and bread.
