I don't recall having this as a child growing up, but it sounds good. Apparently you can make the meat & rice into meatballs if that is your preference.
Will copy just as the original recipe reads.
Put half the kraut in the bottom of roaster pan, spread meat over kraut. Sprinkle rice over meat & add brown sugar, to taste, then add rest of kraut.
Pour tomatoes over the top and sprinkle with more brown sugar.
