Ok, I know that there are a lot of people out there who just simply don’t care for sauerkraut but for those who do, I’ve made a small discovery and it’s a yummy one! When I was growing up, we just put a little water in the sauerkraut and warmed it up with some hot dogs……and that was good on occasion, until I decided to put a twist on this stuff. It was life changing!
This is a really simple side dish and I love to make it with just about any type of grilled meat.
I started by draining and rinsing the sauerkraut, see I didn’t know until a few years ago that this stuff needed to be rinsed.
Then I put it in the frying pan with butter, caraway seeds and brown sugar. I let it cook until it was good and hot and everything was well combined.
I served it with a steak from Costco and some corn.
