If it's the sweeter Bavarian style, here's my favorite way to fix it:

Slice a medium onion into strips. Carmelize in oil, with a bit of salt.
Stir in the drained kraut, saute for a few minutes.. Cover and simmer
for 5 more, then serve as a side dish, or on top of dogs, brauts or braised pork!

I can and do just eat it by itself.

1/2 c. salad oil
1/2 c. vinegar
1 1/2 c. sugar

Combine sauerkraut, onion, green pepper and celery. Beat until thick: salad oil, vinegar and sugar. Pour over salad. Refrigerate and let stand overnight.


You may want to cut down on the sugar.
I don't know how I ever missed this thread on Kraut !!

Constance, I've been using the same recipe for years and it's outstanding, I use red onion for color, and use only 1/2 cup sugar. In my experience, the salad needs to be drained after the overnight marinade.
I even had it published in a club cookbook, and called it "Trust Me Sauerkraut Salad" People who hate sauerkraut love this unusual salad, even kids.
With hot weather nearly here, it's really good with grilled or barbecued pork.

I will make this this weekend! Thanks Constance and Kayelle!

How would swapping out the green peppers for jalapenos work? Got some beauties.

I never thought of adding dumplings to spare ribs and kraut and I had forgotten how yummy kraut cake is. I might have to dig out that recipe.

i never did get the appeal of those novelty recipes for "mock" apple pie, for instance, made with potato chips and cinnamon. so now there is a sauerkraut cake and what's special about it is that you can't tell there's sauerkraut in it? i prefer a dish that TASTES like sauerkraut because i happen to LIKE the taste of sauerkraut. am i missing something here?

Personally jalapenos wouldn't work for me, but hey it's your kitchen and I'll never know.

We always put sauerkraut on pizza...my DH's sauerkraut is quite good. We also make sausage and sauerkraut with juniper berries...it has been awhile since I've done that, so I can't remember if there is anything else in there...

I know I have seen several reuben casserole and reuben soup recipes in various cookbooks I have. Keep meaning to make the soup and just haven't gotten around to it.

I love saurkraut on pizza too. Add some pineapple, green olives & italian sausage with it & it's really good.
