"This is a recipe from my Husband's grandmother. Even people that aren't crazy about sauerkraut have raved about them. For a Rueben twist, serve on a good rye roll with a slice of Swiss."

I think this would have been good as written, but I did change it quite a bit. I used crumbled polish sausage, didn't use the chicken stock, just the sauerkraut juice. I also added about a half cup sour cream at the end, and that gave it a great taste as well as the saucy texture of a regular sloppy joe. Thanks for the recipe!

This was not to our liking.--That is not what I wrote. I wrote we threw it out.

Made this for New Years Eve - Loved it too much!! We used the juice from the kraut instead of the broth, added a tsp of worcestershire, a little black pepper, and garlic salt. Excellent!!

Good taste. Nice light alternative to bbq sloppy joes. Next time I'll leave out the broth and include the liquid from the kraut and add the kraut at the last minute to keep the tanginess from cooking out. I couldn't find kraut with caraway seeds so I added 1 tsp caraway seeds. These are good on Rye rolls with swiss cheese.

This was easy/quick to make and had a lot of flavor. It was hard to keep the filling on the bun. I reduced the recipe to just one third and I got six sandwiches.

We reallyy enjoyed this and I made this per the recipe. We had it on rolls with thousand island dressing and swiss cheese. This disappeared quickly in our house.

This was good. I felt like it needed more of a sauce.. I'm just a condiment girl.. but it was good and may make again..
