Leona's Sour Sauerkraut and Kielbasa

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 35 mins

I came up with this recipe because I like the slight bitterness of the sauerkraut instead of the traditional sweet. Give it a try--you want be sorry! My hubby begs for it--lol.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fry kielbasa in pan approximately 5 minutes (turning occasionally); set aside.
  2. Strain sauerkraut (do not rinse) and let sit.
  3. Wash and cut potatoes in half.
  4. Boil potatoes approximately 8 minutes.
  5. Put stick of butter in frying pan (I use the one that I fried the kielbasa in -- less mess and absorbs the flavor).
  6. Put sauerkraut on top of butter (level it).
  7. Cook sauerkraut until lightly brown (flipping occasional as not to burn).
  8. You can either use a crock pot at this point or a large pot on the stove.
  9. Combine all ingredients listed above into pot and mix well.
  10. Add 1/2 stick butter to top.
  11. Cover for approximately 30 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender.
  12. Serve!

This was very good, It was a little salty for my taste, maybe next time I will cut down on the seasoning salt. THANKS for the recipe!

I used the low fat Healthy Choice smoked sausage and substituted low fat chicken broth for the butter to make a low fat dish. I also used bavarian sour kraut. Still a very yummy dish. My family loved it. Thanks!

I cut the butter in half, but it was very good.
