This was my Polish mother-in-law's recipe... It is so easy... and so good!

The onion and apple and butter browned together give the sauerkraut a gentler yet full flavor.

Add additional ingredients or don't... it is a great recipe how ever you decide to put it together.

Traditions are great.. but sometimes it is cool to change things up a bit!

How to Make Polish Sauerkraut

Step-by-Step

  1. Saute' the onions and apples in the butter. Brown them (be careful not to burn them!).

    Any additional vegetables can be added and saute'd

    Add meat if you like.
  2. Add sauerkraut juice to the pan and stir well to get all the caramelized drippings blended in... the liquid will be brown. Stir in the sauerkraut, and heat through before serving.
