I made this today and it was very good. I used kielbasa b/c that's what I had. I cut the kielbasa into coins and browned it with the onion and apple I only had one apple. I used beer instead of water for a little more flavor and the full amount of brown sugar called for. There are no leftovers and I know I will want more tomorrow. I will be making this again soon. Oh I also served over mashed potatoes it was really good I liked the salty kielbasa and the brown sugar flavor from the sauerkraut everything just came together perfectly!
Very tasty! Will use less sugar though next time. Is more of a side dish than a main course, but satisfying.
Yummy. I used half the sugar and cooked mine on the stove instead of the oven. I forgot to rinse and drain the sauerkraut, but it didn't seem to matter. Next time I might dice the apples.
We loved it. Cooked it as the recipe says and don't regret it.
This was a fabulous recipe that my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed. I did prepare mine slightly differently. I left my sausages whole and browned them by themselves. When they were done I removed the sausages and added the onion and apples to the browned bits of sausage that was left in the pan. Cooked for a few then added the remaining ingredients. Then cut the links onto small serving sized pieces and added them to the skillet as well.
I also decreased the sugar to less than 1/4 cup and used apple juice and chicken stock in place of the water. I did not use the caraway seeds and I would caution the amount.
I too served it over mashed potatoes. Next time I will add some carrot to the mix as well.
