I love ribs with sauerkraut & apple. I used already cooked ribs so I put the apples & kraut over the cut pieces of ribs, covered them with foil and baked them at 350 for 1 Hour. Fall off the bone moist & delicious

Thank you so much for posting your great recipe! My family really enjoyed it. I didn't have as much sauerkraut as it called for but it was still super. I'm putting this in my tried and true file and will certainly make it again.

This is simply the best spareribs and sauerkraut recipe I have ever made!! I had been making them the way my German mother-in-law did on to of the stove and I would end up with soupy kraut and mushy meat. This kraut is so flavorful and the meat is wonderfully roasted. I did rinse my kraut and added more brown sugar and cooked closer to 2 hours. Thank you for this winner of a recipe.
