This dish is delicious! I followed other s recommendations and used only 4 apples and it tasted great! The sauerkraut is tart and the apples sweet so it is almost similar to a sweet-n-sour flavor. I thought it would be good because I like all the ingredients but it was really delicious. Great blends of flavor! Read More

Well - this was a pretty no frills recipe but it's a perfectly good base to start with. I sauteed 2 cloves of garlic and 2 medium sized shallots in some butter to start. Then I added the kraut (I used uncooked "Bubbies" brand) brown sugar diced apples (I only used 1 large apple to 1lb Kielbasa -- I'm not nuts over apples) a half cup of raisins and half bottle of amber beer. Let it simmer for about 10 mins with the lid off so the liquid would reduce. I sliced and browned the Kielbasa separately and then tossed it in with the kraut along with a teaspoon of caraway seeds and a half teaspoon of nutmeg. Let it cook for about 5-7 mins more and serve with some honey mustard on the side. Deee-lish. Read More

Hubby loves kraut and kielbasa as long as the meat is from the German butcher and not the grocery store. I used applesauce instead of the apples and added some caraway seeds and sauteed onions. Thanks Lori! Read More

I cut this recipe in half and only used one package of kielbasa. However I first sauteed a sliced onion and only one apple. Then I added a 10oz can of sauerkraut the kielbasa and an 1/8 cup of brown sugar. This is a pretty good recipe and I would definitely make it again but next time I would cut the kielbasa to fit into a bun and added the sauerkraut mixture to it. Thanks! Read More

I just made this for my German wife on Valentine's day and it was really good! I used Empire apples. The apples seemed to take the tartness away from the sourkraut. Easy to make. Read More

Keilbasa is one of my favorite foods but sadly I found this recipe to be only "so-so"...this may be because I added too much brown sugar? A visiting friend who doesn't care for keilbasa absolutely LOVED it however. It was very sweet but didn't have much going on besides that. I feel like it needed some kind of bite maybe a diced onion or pepper? I think I'm going to play with the recipe and try again. Read More

After reading all the reviews and suggestions I too reduced the apples from six to three. I also used slightly less than 1/4 cup brown sugar. I took the juice from the kraut and microwaved it enough so to dissolve the sugar. Then I wrapped all the ingred. in alum. foil and cooked it in my Big Green Egg (smoker) for approx 45 minutes, maintaining a temp. of 325-350 degrees. It was FABULOUS !!!! Will make this again and again!! Read More

Tastes just like my mom's! I used our homemade applesauce instead of apples. It was wonderful! Even the kids loved it! We served it over noodles like my mom always did. Thank you! Read More
