Pretty darn delicious. Carefully poured off the sauce into a pan (once the casserole had cooled a bit), thickened with cornstarch over medium high heat and poured back over the casserole. Now it is just perfect to ladle over mashed potatoes or egg noodles.
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.
