MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 6, 2012

Since I was late starting I put the potatoes and onions in with the brats as I sauted them. Then put the sauerkraut in the bottom of crockpot and the brat mixture over. I left out the brown sugar and apple. I think I could have left out the salt. Very good. Next time I would add some beef broth to make it a little juicier.

Excellent, have made this many times with brats or ribs. I brown the ribs before putting in the slow cooker. Always turns out great.
