For the pickling. But I'm talking about the prepared dishes. I know some of my favorites in Munich are made with red wine in them, along with some onions and other seasonings. I've had it prepared with cider vinegar, too. But I've never actually made a sauerkraut dish at home.

My original point was that sauerkraut is made with cabbage and salt, no vinegar.

If you susequently use the sauerkraut in a recipe that adds vinegar, that's a different discussion.

Okay. I guess I haven't eaten sauerkraut, then, just sauerkraut dishes. I didn't realize the difference. Thanks!

Yes. Döner or Döner Kebap in Turkish. It's usually a lamb and beef mixture along with some spices.

I've never heard of eating them with sweet and sour sauce... I've never seen one w/ any fat either. the fat drips down into a pan.

aww you lucky bum. you can have it without worrying about the calories! lol over here its full of fat, so can only have it occasionally. different places serve it with different sauces, but the one i prefer is usually a sweety kinda soury sauce, its abit tangy/spicy too, quite nice, it goes well with the donner

You seem to have some strange eating places where you live, Shamalicious.... Get yourself over to Edinburgh, the doners are good in most of the takeaways, with the same method of the oil dripping out of the meat stack before they cut off thin slices which is served with fresh salad in a pitta bread pocket.

Mind you, we do get offered curry sauce or sweetnsour on a fish supper!

no offense shamalicious, but are you sure it's a donner (or gyro) you're talking about? With a mixture of lamb, beef, and spices wrapped in a pita from either a Turkish, Greek, or Mid-Eastern place? It looks like this:
