"This goes great with German type cuisine. The long, low temperature cooking time is imperative to allow the ingredients to caramelize thoroughly."

I love this recipe! I've made it several times and I've made these adjustments...First, I crisp the bacon and drain it, so the dish isn't so greasy, then I cut the sugar WAY back to 1/4 of a cup. In a pinch, I used an apple instead of a tomato and it was PERFECT. For a full meal, I also chop up sausage and mix in with the kraut/apple mixture. Just awesome!

I tried this recipe and loved the flavor, however think it would be greatly improved by reducing the amount of pepper in it. Could 1 tablespoon be correct? Seems like 1 teaspoon should be more like it.

I substituted the bacon with 1 lb of Poska Kielbasa cut into bite size, browned and drained. I also cut the pepper back to 1/2 a tablespoon and will use a little less next time - a bit too hot for my taste. It is a wonderful change to the usual sausage and kraut!

We had this tonight with our meal and loved it! I only changed the pepper amount. I just sprinkled a little bit and stirred it in, the hubby is sensitive to it!

Very different and excellent. We doubled the recipe and loved it! Recommend cutting down on the pepper (about half would do).Will make believers out of people who don't even like sauerkraut.

This was fabulous! My husband, who claimed to not like sauerkraut, loved it. I did not rinse the sauerkraut and cut down on the sugar.

I am in shock! My 3 year old tried this and asked for more!! He is the world's pickiest eater other than my 6 year old who did not like it--but that means NOTHING! LOL! I loved this--did rinse and drain the sauerkraut, cut back on the pepper and used real bacon bits and petite diced canned tomatoes ( I am lazy!)--this was AWESOME!! I loved it and will make again soon--will cut back on sugar next time just to reduce calories but it was great and I enjoyed it sweet! I am German and this is the real deal!!! :) Thanks for a great recipe!

This is a fabulous recipe. I often take this when we're invited to friends for a barbque. The Slowcooker Sauerkraut and Sausage recipe on this site is another favorite.
