With big, tender chunks of sausage, potatoes and carrots, this meal-in-one has old-world flavor that will satisfy the heartiest of appetites. A co-worker often made a big pot of this for our office staff, and it always disappeared in a hurry. —Joalyce Graham of St. Petersburg, Florida
Sausage Sauerkraut Supper Recipe photo by Taste of Home
2 cans (14 ounces each) sauerkraut, rinsed and drained
2-1/2 pounds fresh Polish sausage links
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
3 garlic cloves, minced
1-1/2 cups dry white wine or chicken broth
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds
In a 5-qt. slow cooker, layer the carrots, potatoes and sauerkraut. In a large skillet, brown sausages. When cool enough to handle, cut into 3-inch pieces; transfer to slow cooker (slow cooker will be full). Reserve 1 tablespoon drippings; saute onion and garlic in reserved drippings until tender.
Gradually add wine. Bring to a boil; stir to loosen browned bits. Stir in pepper and caraway. Pour over sausage. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until a thermometer inserted in the sausage reads 160°.
