This a simple recipe that everyone seems to like. You have to darken the buttered sauerkraut. What I mean by darken is slightly burnt. Stirring will bring the darkened sauerkraut up from the bottom of the pan so that more can darken. I know that sounds strange but it is really awesome.

Add some cornbread and you have one easy weeknight meal. Kielbasa and sauerkraut are great together, but adding the butter makes this recipe extra special. Browning the butter and sauerkraut adds tons of flavor. Make sure to let it get browned ... that's where the flavor is. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Kielbasa and fried buttered sauerkraut

Step-by-Step

  1. Use a large skillet. Put the butter in and melt it around the pan. When it starts to sizzle put in the whole can of sauerkraut.
  2. While the sauerkraut is cooking, cut up the kielbasa into 1 inch slices. Put aside.
  3. Stir the sauerkraut. Once it starts turning brown add the kielbasa.
  4. Continue to stir, add the spices, and stir some more. The sauerkraut should be golden brown with some darkened areas. Let it cook and stir often (sauerkraut burns easily, so you have to watch it. You only want a little bit darkened)
  5. Once everything is mixed and the sauerkraut is golden brown turn off the heat and let it sit until the burner is cool. (This will darken the sauerkraut further.) Serve and enjoy.
