"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." — NATALIE17

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.
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.
We really enjoyed this recipe. I had forgotten to get carrots and had none in the fridge, so I used onion and celery which I diced and sauteed a bit. Also, following another reviewer's recommendation, I added potatoes to the casserole. The potatoes were just cut into large cubes and layered on the bottom of the dish before everything else was thrown in.
Considering how easy this is and the fact that the ingredients are quite often on sale, I know that this will be a do-over again and again.
