Recipe by Mysterygirl

Hermann, MO is a town that is exceedingly proud of it's German heritage. I got this recipe from a cook at one of it's many German restaurants. He served it with mashed potatoes and a smoked apple sausage from another small town in the area.

This is a dish I think I had before in Munich. It is fantastic...wonderful....!!The pork was moist, tender, flavorful! The sauerkraut was a beautiful caramel color, and so flavorful. I cannot tell you how much we enjoyed this dish. San Antonio has a huge German population too, but I have not had a dish like this here yet. Thank you so much for posting this remarkable recipe.
