Both my husband and I really enjoyed this. I used milk, and I'm glad I did, because I don't know if it would have been creamy enough if I hadn't. I cooked the whole time on a low setting. I did get a little worried when it seemed like the milk was curdling, but 20 minutes after I added the sauerkraut, it worked itself out. Overall, I was very impressed, and happy to finally find a recipe that combined my husband's two favorite foods. Thank you.
