"I only used about half of the brown sugar and would leave if out next time. Didn't enjoy the sweetness. I did add a cut up red potato on top with a little salt and pepper. Good"

"I would not make it for me, but everyone else enjoyed it tremendously. And I mean everyone. Maybe I don't like sauerkraut as much as I thought. To reiterate, it was highly popular with everyone else (5 other people who do like sauerkraut)."

"This is a yummy, simple slow cooker recipe. I didn't have a green pepper, so I used a red pepper instead. I think the red pepper was delicious! This is a cheap meal, and my husband really liked it. I served it with salad and homemade mashed potatoes."
