This is our family recipe. I usually enjoy to use smoked polish sausage with this. I really like how it tastes when it soaks in the sauerkraut all day. I serve it with fresh kielbasa for the traditionalists too.

I halved this recipe because there's only 2 of us. I used smoked sausage and the crockpot. This smelled so good I could barely wait for it to get done. We really enjoyed this meal and will definitely make it again. Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2012.
