Ina's Sauerkraut

Country: Germany
Course: Sides
Makes: 6 to 8 servings


  • 1 large jar sauerkraut
  • 1 cube beef broth
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • Dry white wine
  • 1 apple, shredded (peel on)
  • 1/2 tsp caraway seed (optional)
  • 5 slices bacon, cut into small pieces
  1. In a large pot, lightly brown the bacon, then add the onions and apple. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered, for about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the sauerkraut and enough white wine to cover. Bring to a boil, then add the beef cube and the caraway seed. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 45 minutes to an hour. Adjust seasonings and wine to your liking. If you want your sauerkraut to be a little drier, take the lid off in the last few minutes of cooking, stirring frequently.
