Sounds great. Please post the recipe.

I bet you'll like it Judys......By the way, we're glad to have you aboard and welcome to Discuss Cooking.

I do it from memory of my grandmother's recipe, nothing written down. I will try to put it on "paper" this weekend.

Thanks. It doesn't need strict quantities, more hints & technique, e.g., what needs to be cut up; what needs to be browned?

Thanks, Craig. That's along the lines of choucroute garni, which is a dish from Alsace. Cooking there has a lot in common with Germany

It's called that because you need to trust me that it's really good. Even people who usually don't like sauerkraut say so, even kids.

1 lg. can of sauerkraut, drained
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped purple onion
1 cup chopped green or red bell pepper (or combo)

Dressing:
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cider vinegar
1/4 vegetable oil
1/2 tsp. salt

Combine kraut and veggies. Mix dressing and toss with mixture. Chill several hours to combine flavors and drain off some of the juice before serving ice cold. It's especially good with grilled meats.


Then there's this...
Down memory lane ("German Stew" recipe)
Thanks. I'd never thought about using it in a salad.

I forgot to mention that I snip up the kraut a little bit with my kitchen shears to make the salad easier to eat. Now I'm hungry for it..off to the kitchen.

Wonderful memory Mad Cook, thanks for sharing.

As for the sauerkraut...I bury it as far from the house as I can

Although, I have cooked it in the drippings from frying pork chops, adding brown sugar to that and Shrek has loved it. Sort of a sweet and sour. I'm old enough I don't have to eat it.

Toss the leftovers into a pot of soup!

I like beef stock, mushrooms, barley and leftover kraut along with whatever else I find in the dark recesses of the refrigerator!

You can also freeze the leftover kraut in stock or water and make the soup a few weeks later.

Maybe I should freeze it for Shrek, that sounds like an excellent idea Aunt Bea!
