Alsatian refers to the Alsace region of France.Unlike many French dishes, this one is not 'delicate', nor does it incorporate a cream sauce, as many French recipes do. It is a hearty, stick-to-your-ribs meal, perfect for the upcoming cooler weather! It is very tasty, and satisfying. Add a green salad and maybe buttered French bread and you have a great meal!
