The sweetness of apples, brown sugar and juniper berries compliment the sauerkraut in this hearty all-in-one pork dish.
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)
excellent just like the French make it!!! If you follow the recipe.....it will come out perfect. You may need more Chicken broth if your pot is very full. To the lady that didn't have good results.....you didn't follow the recipe correctly. I hope you will try it again and follow to a tee! - 05 Feb 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
