1/2 Photos of Italian Sausage and Sauerkraut
I love Italian Sausage and I love Sauerkraut. I thought I would cook the two together and see how it would turn out. It was really good. Sauerkraut can tend to be a little "gassy" so I always put beer in it to neutralize the acidity in the sauerkraut. It seems to do the trick for me. Sometimes draining and rinsing the sauerkraut just isn't enough. Beer also gives the sauerkraut a good flavor. The pears give it a little bit of a sweetness. Cooking time is approximate since some people may want to cook it longer than the suggested 30 minutes. This can serve either 2 or 4 people depending on how many sausages and how much sauerkraut each person may want.
