THIS IS ONE OF MY VERY FAVORITES! If you don't hunt your own deer or elk, you can purchase venison in a specialty gourmet store, such as Wild Oats, etc.) NOTE: If you don't eat or can't obtain venison, you may substitute beef filets or veal cutlets.

FANTASTIC. I've always loved this flavour of kraut. This was a very easy (easier than it appears to be, anyway). My husband who has never liked any form of cabbage loved this. The kids loved it as well. I think this would be wonderful with fresh Bratts added toward the end of the braising and accompanied with some fresh Brotchen. I'll definatly make this again. Thank you, Alan, for a terrific recipe. Since trying this, I've looked over your other recipes. You have some really delicious sounding recipes. Some of which, I'll just have to try ;-)

wow!!! Absoutley Delicious. I have to be honest though, I had to use italian bread crumbs and instead of plain and Also thought I had Currant jam left but when I got home we were all out so I had to use Blackberry. But It was still delicious. We will definatley make this again. Thanks for posting.
