I'm a pollack and was raised on sauerkraut! This dish was absolutely delicious! Follwed recipe to a "T". The smell in the house while it was cooking was fantastic! Will definitely be making again!! Thank you so much for posting this recipe. Will be emailing it to all my family!
Karen I took some liberties with your recipe namely because of lack of French Onion Sour and I wanted to do it in a crockpot. It was absolutely delicious! I cut the recipe in half . If you have not got it under this category please add it as it is great. Put everything in the crockpot(except 1/4 cup of the consumme) cooked on high for 1 1/2 hrs turned to low and cooked for a further 2 1/2 hrs. I did not have French Onion soup so used 1/2 cup Beef consumme (added in two portions of 1/4 cup each)and a 1/2 cup French's Fried Onions I also added 2 raw peeled sliced (1/4" slices). I put in 1/4 cup of the soup for the first 1 1/2 hrs on high and then added the second 1/4 cup when I turned it to low. What a great dish and the aroma as it is cooking MMmm This to me is real comfort food. Thanks Karen for a great recipe.
I knew this would be good, but could not imagine just HOW GOOD! It is fabulous. I wedged an apple and pushed the pieces into the kraut.....also a bay leaf. Don't know how much difference it made. Next time, being big kraut lovers, I would half the meat.....we had a fair bit left over, and could have done with less than we ate. It was hard to resist tho'.....sooooooo tender and flavourful. Thanks.
I agree that the aroma was terrific. The ribs also tasted great and I will certainly make this again. However, I would cook it at a lower temperature. I found 350° for three hours was far too long.
Hi Karen: What a wonderful, wonderful recipe this is. We enjoyed every bite! My husband says he could easily GORGE himself on this! (me, too)!!! Thanks a bunch. Sinceely, Laudee
Dh says this dish is delicious, he liked it a lot. I've made pork and kraut many times over the years, but have always shied away from adding brown sugar, and the onion soup really intrigued me too! I'm glad I tried it. It was a winning combination. I used half a bag of french onion soup with 1/2 cup of water, and added some peeled potatoes about 1 1/2 hours before it was done. I tried out my new dutch oven from Christmas, and this was a delicious dish to cook in it.
Thanks this recipe is now our New Years Tradition. Just wonderful. I did add some cut up apple to the top. Would reccomend to anyone!
Delicious! I never cooked country style ribs before but they were on sale so I bought some and then looked for a recipe. So glad I tried this one. Followed it as written it came out great. I will make this again for sure.
So good! I made it first time in crock pot and family loved it. The second time I made in the oven and it was absolutely the best ever and family is begging for more which I am making today. My daughter never liked sauerkraut but now says she craves this recipe. No can of soup so used what I had which was Lipton french onion soup package. Just soaked the dried soup in a couple cups of water and it couldn't be any better. So thanks to the poster of this recipe. It is now a family favorite. Unfortunately, there aren't any leftovers for me next day. lol
I am so sorry. I thought this combination was horrible. Pork ribs, French onion soup, brown sugar. I love pork and sauerkraut and thought I would try a different recipe. Give me pork ribs, sauerkraut, caraway seeds, potatoes, carrots....salt-pepper and there you go.... I could be so wrong.
