"This is a very mild sauerkraut recipe. It actually doesn't taste much like sauerkraut or I wouldn't like it. It took me 2 years to finally decide to give it a try and boy was it worth it! It is low calorie with vegetables and apple - an interesting blend of flavors. Serve with baked or mashed potatoes."

country style pork ribs
salt and pepper to taste
dry white wine
red apple - cored and diced
carrots, peeled and cut into large chunks
I made a recipe very similar to this over the weekend to cheer on the Philadelphia Eagles' victory! I used bonesless pork chops, 2 cups sauerkraut, 1/4 cup brown sugar, one envelope onion soup mix, 1 tsp. caraway seeds, and 1/2 cup water. Cooked it for 8 hours in a crockpot - - very very good. Next time I will add wine or beer to the crockpot for a bit more liquid.
The pork was tender and delicious however I felt it was too sweet and I really didn't care for the taste of carway with the Kraut. I'm going to stick with the tried, true and simple next time - just kraut and pork.
Hubby was in the mood for ribs, while I was in the mood for sauerkraut: this was the recipe we needed!
Used beer instead of white wine and caraway powder, instead of seeds (I hate caraway seeds!).
Taste was yummy and meat fell off the bone.
Next time I would cut the carrots smaller, because the "large chunks" were too large for my tastes.
I used all wine for my liquid in the recipe and cooked in the oven, as directed. The meat fell off the bone! It has a very mild flavor and is very good.
I will be making this as our "goto" kraut and pork recipe from now on. Pork was very tender and the counterbalance of the minor sweet ingredients tempered the sourness of the kraut perfectly. My only changes were not draining the kraut so I could retain the liquid in the roaster, layering half the kraut in the bottom of the roaster before placing the browned pork on it, and I removed the browned pork out of the skillet then deglazed the pan using the white cooking wine before adding the other ingredients and rest of kraut to the skillet. I poured everything on top of the browned pork ribs in the roaster then covered to cook for about 2.5 hours. We served this over hash browns (not crispy bec/I was out of potatoes to mash) and my boys each had two helpings. Definitely a keeper! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Very good recipe I do not understand what another poster meant by "too sweet" ..there was only 1 Tablespoon brown sugar added and an apple I browned my ribs in 1/2 butter and 1/2 oil also used 4 potatoes and ditched the carrots.. potatoes are made to go wuth kraut giving it a special flavor and texture as it slow cooks next time may add 1 or 2 cloves minced garlic Delicious!
Supper? SUPER! Only thing I'd change is to use even MORE kraut. Long cook time seems to reduce to "not enough".
Fantastic! Used about a half cup wine.
