"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."

  1. Heat bacon drippings in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.
  2. Place sauerkraut with juice into a large bowl and cover with water. Stir and use your hands to squeeze out as much of the water and juice as possible. Add squeezed sauerkraut to onion.
  3. Stir brown sugar, caraway seeds, chicken stock, and cooking sherry into the sauerkraut mixture. Reduce heat to low and simmer until almost all the liquid has evaporated, 30 to 40 minutes, stirring occasionally.

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 g...

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 pr...

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!!

Loved the flavor. I would do this again any time

Made this to go with a pork tenderloin. Thought it was excellent. I used all of the ingredients listed. I wound up cooking it twice as long as suggested, but I like my sauerkraut smushy, not ...
