I guess the Polish is coming out in me again! My mom's not so favorite (It's not hers) but I like it!! I've also cooked this slow cooker and stove top. Your choice. And many times cooked for three hours. Makes great left overs! Better the next day!

A very tasty blend of flavors, the ribs pick up a mild flavoring from the sauerkraut that is delicious. I have always used apple and caraway seeds in my sauerkraut, but the carrots were a pleasant discovery adding alot to the flavor to this dish. I always rinse my sauerkraut at least twice before using to prevent it from overpowering the meal. I did that with this dish, and I believe that even those who are not big sauerkraut fans would enjoy this dish.
