This is a truly authentic "Old World recipe"—friends of our family who moved here from Poland gave it to my mother years ago. It's been a favorite Sunday dinner with all of us ever since then. I've found that it's always a hit at potluck dinners, too. After my husband and I moved to our dairy farm, I discovered that this hearty, one-dish dinner was a perfect one for our busy schedule...and that any leftovers taste even better the second day!


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-1/2 pounds pork stew meat
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1-1/2 pounds smoked Polish sausage, cut in 1/2-inch slices
  • 1 quart sauerkraut, rinsed and well drained
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped cabbage
  • 1 tablespoon caraway seeds
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • Pepper to taste


  1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add pork and onion; brown meat. Transfer to a 5-qt. slow cooker. Stir in remaining ingredients. Cook, covered, on low until pork is tender, 6-8 hours.
