Pat's StoryThis is another one of my grandma's Hungarian recipes- I love sauerkraut. And many of her recipes have sauerkraut and rice and pork or beef - all similar but still different in taste. Again this has been tweaked for today's cooking. I hope you enjoy this recipe.
This is great served with sourdough or pumpernikel bread.
