This is a good one for people that don't care for sauerkraut a whole lot. It doesn't have a strong flavor of sauerkraut, it is very creamy and tasty.



Original recipe yields 6 servings
The ingredient list now reflects the servings specified


  • Heat the butter in a large skillet with a lid over medium heat; cook and stir the onion and garlic until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the water, potatoes, carrots, beef bouillon granules, sugar, and caraway seeds; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer, and cook until the potatoes and carrots are tender, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes.

  • Place the sauerkraut on top of the vegetables in a layer, and place the sausages onto the sauerkraut. Cover, and cook until the sausages are heated through, about 15 minutes.

  • Whisk the flour into the sour cream in a bowl, and stir into the sauerkraut mixture. Bring to a simmer to thicken the sour cream, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and serve hot.

This was really good. I drained the water off the kraut. Left out the sour cream and flour. It was perfect without it. Read More

Wow. This was a surprise hit. I had some kielbasa in the freezer and a can of sauerkraut so I was looking for a way to jazz it up. In order to speed up cooking I put everything other than the sour cream and flour in the skillet from the beginning with the potatoes and carrots sliced thin. I also used dried minced onion and garlic powder. I brought it to a boil and simmered it all for about 20 minutes until the potatoes and carrots were tender and the meat thermometer read 170. Then I added the sour cream and flour. As I noticed all that delicious creamy sauce I quickly decided to cook some egg noodles to serve this over. Yum! My 6-year-old son proclaimed it his favorite food. What a shocker! Read More

My German Grandmother used to make something like this. It was even better than I remembered!!! Even my son who hates sauerkraut LOVED this. I will DEFINITELY make this again and again and again. I did make a few minor changes though. I diced and sauted the sausage with the carrots and garlic so I didnt need the butter. I used chicken bouillon instead of beef. I mixed in the sauerkraut (which I squeezed the liquid out of) instead of layeriing it. Will double next time for leftovers. YUM!!!!!! Read More

I made this today wondering how it would turn out. GREAT! It is one of the most delicious dishes i've ever eaten. HOWEVER next time I will make it in a dutch oven as the skillet is just not deep enough and it makes a mess of the stove while cooking. I had a surprise guest for lunch and she loved it too. The only thing i would add might be some chopped parsley scattered over it as garnish. THANK YOU! Read More

I didn't have caraway seeds so I didn't use them. And like others omitted the sour cream/ flour step (although he added sour cream to the finished product after I mentioned I left out that step). My boyfriend almost ate the WHOLE PAN!!! He left a small corner! Read More

We really enjoyed this one! Just a few minor changes for us though.....used turkey kielbasa olive oil instead of butter totally elimanated the potatoes(and made pierogies on the side) and used only 1/2c. sour cream(low fat)......very tasty and a nice easy one pot meal. Will make again. Loved the caraway seed.....adds a lot of flavor....great with the kraut. Thanks! Read More

Didn't care for this... If you don't like sauerkraut you shouldn't make sauerkraut instead of making it and then covering it up. My man loves sauerkraut and if he likes it he'll go back for seconds... not this time. Read More
