When my mother/late stepfather were going to get married, we went for a visit to his home state of Virginia, to meet his relatives. One of them was my Aunt Thelma, in Waynesboro. She made a meal/this was the main dish. I had never had it before. Never tasted sauerkraut, either.But, when I tasted it, I fell in love with this dish. Have been making it on/off since.
