Top Review by Leggy Peggy

This made a great, quick, warming lunch. It's so interesting how tastes differ. The previous reviewer liked the sweetness the wine added, but I'd prefer it without. Give me full-on sour any day. This did satisfy my need for a 'fix' of kraut. Made and enjoyed for Zaar World Tour.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the sausage into 3-inch lengths, then halve lengthwise.
  2. Heat oil in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage, cut side down, and cook until browned on bottom, about 3 minutes.
  3. Turn over sausage; add onions, and sauté until onions are beginning to soften, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in remaining ingredients. Cover and simmer until flavors blend, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Discard bay leaf. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve.
