    ~Ri's Note:

    I'm German/American and sauerkraut was a must in our house. Growing up in Germany for 23 years we had it often and in many different varieties. Many times Mom made it just with hamhogs or smoked pigs feet.

      Followed recipe exactly as written and added kielbasi during the last 1/2 hr of cooking. We enjoyed the flavor of this authentic hungarian dish. This is the first time I added sour cream to my Kielbasi and sauerkraut and it really improved my old recipe. Thanks for posting.

      I have to admit I was skeptical but boy was my mind put to rest! This was really great and will be added to my cookbooks! I eat sauerkraut here and at my German MIL's and I have to say this really takes the pucker out of it for me. Loved it!

      Delicious and easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly except I used Morningstar Bacon strips and low fat yogurt in place of the sour cream. I served it over mashed potatoes and it made the meal.
