Reviews forBeef and Sauerkraut Dinner
"We love sauerkraut and the marriage with meatballs made it amazing! Hearty home cooking at its best. Try the dipping sauce with the meatballs!"
"I personally liked this recipe but I could not get my husband or kids to eat it. You have to really like sauerkraut if you are going to make it."
