    This is a 4-star recipe ONLY if you do the following: Add 1/2 cup of honey mustard, 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar, 2 Bottles of Sam Adams beer, any saurkraut and polska kielbasa PEELED! Eat alone or put on a fresh hard roll. If you only use beer, you'll know you're missing something! I make this all the time this way.  -  17 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I used some of everyone's suggestions! Browned the sausage fast on high in an iron skillet, threw it in the crockpot. Cooked 1/2 an onion and 3 cloves of garlic minced in the hot pan for about 5 minutes and added that. Added about a tablespoon of caraway seeds, a healthy squirt of honey and one of spicy mustard. And don't forget the apple! This was delicious!  -  14 Sep 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Absolutely loved it! I doubled the sauerkraut and beer(light beer). Otherwise there is a lot more meat than kraut. Easy and delicious! Did not add a thing! Try it first before you doctor it. Thank you for sharing!  -  23 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
