Recipe: Sauerkraut II

Part of a Big Czech Dinner!

“And there it is, good old CZECH SAUERKRAUT, “KISLE ZELE.””


32 oz can sauerkraut
1 can water
1 large or 2 medium potatoes, peeled and shredded
4-5 slices bacon, cut into small pieces
½ onion, chopped
2 Tbsp flour

Pour sauerkraut and water into saucepan and start cooking slowly over low fire. Add shredded potatoes to sauerkraut and continue cooking. Fry bacon in a small skillet and drain, reserving drippings in skillet and adding bacon bits to sauerkraut. Saute onions in bacon drippings, stir in flour to make a smooth roux, and cook until lightly browned. Add mixture to sauerkraut, mixing well, and cook until slightly thickened and heated through.


  1. I make a similar recipe, but use a can of beef broth instead of water.

    You'd find the recipe I use in a crappy old Joy of Cooking cook book...!

  2. PS...

    I'd do the crappy strike through but I don't know how!

    1. You know, I think he did use veggie broth instead of water. But I can imagine how beef broth would subtly change it a bit.

      I think you'd have to use html to strike thru in the comments. Let me see if that works.

      Nope. blogger is telling me my html cannot be accepted.


Be nice. Nothing inappropriate, please.
