This is one of those no real recipes. I believe it's Alsacian. But if you have a lot of kraut, and a big family or good group of friends ...

drain, squeeze your saurkraut, rinse and repeat.

sautee some onions and apple slices until just carmelized. set aside.

brown the following:

pork chops
sausages (smoked, fresh, or both)
ham (shanks or thick slices)

Put all together, barely cover with water, and cook either on low on stovetop, in a crock pot, or in the oven at a slow heat for a couple of hours.

A lot of people like to add some sugar to taste.

I'd serve with hearty bread or even polenta. A very light cucumber salad. Lots of something like rhein wine.

I do not remember what this dish is called, and I'm sure someone out there can come up with a more authentic, disciplined version. All I know is that it calls for smoked meats and saurkraut.

Throw it out, buy a plane ticket and come here to Munich where sauerkraut tastes good. :P

Just kidding. I really don't have any idea what to do with manufactured sauerkraut in the US because over here it's a bit sweet, very fresh tasting and very delicious. I guess they don't "pickle" it as much. My mom would tell you to cut up some hot dogs and have sauerkraut and weenies. That's what she force-fed me as a child.

a family favorite:
-1 or 2 bags sauerkraut, pork roast, baby red potatoes, and lots and lots of black pepper all in a big roaster, covered and baked till done. i haven't made this on my own before, but my Dad makes it often and it's really simple. good with a nice grainy mustard or horseradish for dipping and my Dad and i alwaya wash it down with a nice cold beer.
i have only tried canned sauerkraut once and it tasted tinny to me.
or else you can throw it into a pot on the stove with some kielbossa. again, good with a grainy mustard. it's good with hot sauce and black pepper as a side for pork chops, or you can bake them in it.
crockpot reuben is good. (need a recipe? i have a few.)
it's good with pierogies, too.
i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink
& rock on, PITTSBURGH-

Beef and Kraut Casserole

Ground beef with kraut is great too! Add a little brown sugar and whatever else you want!

here in Germany (where the home of Sauerkraut is.. ), we make mashed potatoes, Sauerkraut (only let it cook for ca. 15 Min. (if it is a good spiced one), and nuckle of pork or smoked pork chop..

It is so delicous.

But if you want, I īve a recipe from my slowenien father-in-law, itīs called Szegediner Gulasch (goulash).

There are some really interesting ideas here. I recently read that sauerkraut is good for the digestion. They suggested drinking the juice which I can't believe. DS I appreciate you making the request. How can you decide which to try first? They all sound so different.
