I can't believe this has been sitting on Zaar for more than two years and has only had one other review! Scrumptious! My family and guest lapped it up and the recipe was requested. I used csabai rather than pepperoni as that is what I had on hand, and I think it was very apt, being an Hungarian smoked sausage with paprika. I used four cups of beef stock, but otherwise followed the recipe to the letter (though I did put a dollop of sour cream on each serving and a sprinkling of chopped chives). I had lots of sauerkraut left over (I had a large can) and I think more than a cup wouldn't go astray. Thank you Kooka for posting this wonderful recipe. It will certainly be one of our winter favourites.
This is a fabulous hearty winter soup. I used Kransky instead of pepperoni and it worked well. I also used 4 cups of stock and it was still quite thick and flavoursome.
