This goes great with German type cuisine. The long, low temperature cooking time is imperative to allow the ingredients to caramelize thoroughly.

I love this recipe! I've made it several times and I've made these adjustments...First I crisp the bacon and drain it so the dish isn't so greasy then I cut the sugar WAY back to 1/4 of a cup. In a pinch I used an apple instead of a tomato and it was PERFECT. For a full meal I also chop up sausage and mix in with the kraut/apple mixture. Just awesome! Read More

I tried this recipe and loved the flavor however think it would be greatly improved by reducing the amount of pepper in it. Could 1 tablespoon be correct? Seems like 1 teaspoon should be more like it. Read More

I substituted the bacon with 1 lb of Poska Kielbasa cut into bite size browned and drained. I also cut the pepper back to 1/2 a tablespoon and will use a little less next time - a bit too hot for my taste. It is a wonderful change to the usual sausage and kraut! Read More

Very different and excellent. We doubled the recipe and loved it! Recommend cutting down on the pepper (about half would do).Will make believers out of people who don't even like sauerkraut. Read More

This is a fabulous recipe. I often take this when we're invited to friends for a barbque. The Slowcooker Sauerkraut and Sausage recipe on this site is another favorite. Read More

This was fabulous! My husband who claimed to not like sauerkraut loved it. I did not rinse the sauerkraut and cut down on the sugar. Read More

I am in shock! My 3 year old tried this and asked for more!! He is the world's pickiest eater other than my 6 year old who did not like it--but that means NOTHING! LOL! I loved this--did rinse and drain the sauerkraut cut back on the pepper and used real bacon bits and petite diced canned tomatoes ( I am lazy!)--this was AWESOME!! I loved it and will make again soon--will cut back on sugar next time just to reduce calories but it was great and I enjoyed it sweet! I am German and this is the real deal!!!:) Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

This was fantastic! I also reduced the amount of pepper to about 1 1/2 teaspoons and rinsed and drained the sauerkraut before using it. I made this for an "Oktoberfest" luncheon we had at work. I made two pans one with the tomatoes and one with a 15 oz. can of tomato sauce because that is what I had in the kitchen. I am glad I made two because all of it was gone at the end of the hour. People liked both types and I have had to give the recipe to numerous people and still have people asking me for it. Great recipe will definitely be making again. Thanks! Read More
