"This recipe has to be the best tasting sauerkraut I've ever had. Traditionally, my family serves pork and sauerkraut every New Year's Day for luck in the coming year. I love cabbage as a general rule and like most sauerkraut recipes, but they can be quite sour depending on how it is prepared. Sadly I don't remember who gave me this recipe and who deserves the credit, since it was pulled from a collection of hand-written recipes I've kept for years. I made it as a side dish for New Year's Day dinner and it was a complete hit! This is certainly not your typical 'sour' sauerkraut recipe."

I cooked this today for my husband. It was great, my son and his girlfriend showed up just as we finished. The both dug in the crockpot and love, love, loved it!!! Great recipie - I will cook this again very soon.
This turned out very good.
I don't care for how most sauerkraut dishes, but this is how I remember enjoying sauerkraut in Germany. It is delicious! My only suggestion is to always rinse sauerkraut using warm water and drain well. I've also made this recipe using white wine and beef broth instead of sherry and chicken stock. I like to serve this with any pork or sausage and red skin boiled potatoes.
Loved the flavor. I would do this again any time
Don't expect typical stinky American sauerkraut with this recipe. This is sweet and doesn't even taste like cabbage. This is how sauerkraut is made in Germany and the recipe is very easy and good. I am a vegetarian and so I used butter instead of bacon grease and vegetable broth instead of chicken stock. It still turned out great.
This was excellent. Most other ones call for tons of fatty pork but I swear this makes kraut which is just as good. I appreciated the other reviews. Am on vacation and didn't have enough sherry so added wine to make up the difference. I'll try another reviewer's suggestion of red wine today. Thanks to all.
This was very good. The caraway seed flavor was a little much for me but my husband and kids loved it. I would probably reduce the caraway seed to half or 3/4 next time. But that's strictly a preference, overall very good.
I made this for a kids birthday party, but for the adults. I omitted the bacon and substituted red wine for Sherry and it turned out great. Delicious!!
