1 (16 ounce) can
sauerkraut, drained and rinsed
salt and pepper to taste
My husband adores sauerkraut and went nuts over this side. I used kraut from the bag instead of the can for a fresher taste, also used brown sugar, minced onion and caraway seeds. Tasted just like my Austrian grandmothers recipe. Thanks Anita!
Maybe our saurkraut was too sour? but this was not great and I wouldnt make it again.
We love this recipe...we use brown sugar in place of the white ....our favorite way to eat it is over hot dogs or bratwurst on a bun. Will have to try it with pork roast, thanks!
Wow! I love traditional sauerkraut, but this recipe kicks it up a notch. I'm not one of those who loves bacon in everything, but it makes this dish. I used brown sugar to deepen the color, and I bought brown sugar cured bacon. I simmered it for about 40 minutes on the stove and added water as needed, but some of the bacon on the bottom got a little caramelized which really sent it over the top. I added about a tbsp of apple cider vinegar at the end just to balance out the sweet. BF and I loved it! Even better the next day!
I'm not sure why everyone is using brown instead of reg. sugar, I only added 2-3 tbl. butter and simmered it about 45min.-1hr. for tenderness. This was an excellent dish. Thanks Anita G. from the whole family "even the mother-in-law)
This is a wonderful change from the "sour" kraut I grew up with. It still has the great flavor of kraut but with a sweet bacony twist, the whole family enjoyed this side dish. I took your advise and made a pork rump roast as the main dish. I added 2 tbl. of butter and simmered for about 30 min. this was awsome!
This was so tasty. My b/f is not a sauerkraut fan and refused to try it, but I loved it, and finished it off the next day. It's a keeper!
I love this recipe and I have used it many, many times! I use brown sugar instead of the white to achieve darker color kraut and sometimes I also add canned pineapple, chopped onion and caraway seeds. This recipe is definitely a keeper!
