This was so delicious - I put two cans Frank's sweet sauerkraut, 3# country ribs, about 12/15 little red potatoes, a large onion, and a can of Coke - left it for about 8 hours on low in the crockpot - Oh, yum yum - everything was so good! Can't wait to make it again
If you don't like cooked cabbage you're probably not going to like this recipe. I used my divided crockpot, to see which way the sauerkraut was better: rinsed or rinsed w/ some of the juice ( and a little less Coke) added back in. I think the extra juice made a more complex sweet pickle-like taste & was definitely better.
I stumbled on to this recipe and was hesitant at first, but this is a great way to make sauerkraut!! Before I would fry it like my Mom did with onions and a little garlic then I added some brown sugar to it or I would bake it with the pork roast, but this recipe beats the other ways by far! So simple and has a great taste, my husband really goes "bananas" when I make this with pork roast!! The flavor is just great!
This recipe replaces Mom's. Thanks for a great recipe!!
Reminds me of growing up and having sauerkraut and weiners :-) ... only better. The butter and onions were the real kicker. I also threw in a dash of balsamic vinegar, 2 tblsp brown sugar, and a polish sausage cut into 1/2" slices. Wonderful blend of sweet and tangy. Great one-dish meal served with warm pumpernickel bread and sweet honey butter. DELICIOUS!
Great side dish for pork dinners! Much more interesting and tasty than plain saurekraut. It was a big hit in my household - and very easy to prepare. To cut down on calories I used half the amount of butter indicated and it didn't seem to make a difference.
Mmmmmm good! I made this in our slow cooker with a couple modifications:
Drained the sauerkraut, added a 12 oz. package of fresh mushrooms quartered and 1# of frozen polish kielbasa cut into 3" chunks. My fiance said it was the best sauerkraut I've ever made for him....even better than my German mom's recipe! Thanks!
Really good kraut! My 8 year old loved it.
Any recipe that starts with a whole stick of butter ought to have something going for it, right? Excellent - and it got the approval of my Slovak/Ukranian grandmother - a woman who knows her sauerkraut!
