The sweetness of apples, brown sugar and juniper berries compliment the sauerkraut in this hearty all-in-one pork dish.
terrible i threw most of it out it was so bad - 30 Jun 2017
I gave this 5 stars because it's the real thing, just like I had in France! I made some changes because of what I had on hand. I used a 32-jar of sauerkraut, a golden delicious apple, no juniper berries, no pork chops and no fresh parsley. Instead of making a spice bag, I just added freshly ground black papper, one shake of ground cloves, and a teaspoon of dried parsley flakes directly into the pot. I used hot dogs for the meat, added the cooked bacon, and used about 8 peeled and quartered red potatoes, let it simmer about an hour and a half, and it all came out delicious. Great recipe! Thanks 4Nancy! Next time I'll follow the recipe exactly. - 06 Jun 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I found that by the time my potatoes were finished cooking, the pork was very dry. I omitted the apple and juniper berries and used ground pepper and cloves instead of whole. I put the chopped onion in with the sauerkraut, sugar, and broth and I crumbled the bacon and put it in 10 minutes before I took it off the stove. I think that I would make this again but without pork. It was very good with just the sausage and sauerkraut and potatoes. Also, I looove the taste of sauerkraut so I think I will add more next time and omit the brown sugar to keep it tart. - 28 Jun 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
