Ribs, Sauerkraut and Dumplings Recipe

My grandmother gave me this recipe 40 years ago. It was a favorite at all our family gatherings and church socials. Today my children are grown and off on their own, but whenever they come home to visit, they still ask me to prepare this memorable family dinner!
