I got this recipe from the Paula Dean show. It is soooo yummy and the ribs and potatoes come out perfect. I hope you enjoy this - my family loves it. This recipe makes a lot. It's great for nights when you are going to have company. I served 8 people easily. The one pot meal appeal makes it an easy fix. Be sure to use the baby back ribs as I have listed in the recipe. I put this in there rather than saying ribs because these work the best with this recipe..
- 2 lbs baby back ribs
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (or whatever you use to cook with)
- 4 lbs red potatoes, halved
- 3⁄4 cup onion, chopped
- 1 (32 ounce) can sauerkraut
- salt and pepper
- 1 cup water
- put oil in a large oven proof pot (I use cast iron).
- brown ribs in the bottom of the heated pot.
- Remove ribs from pot.
- Cook onion in pot just until they start to turn brown.
- Add the potato halves.
- Put ribs in pot over onions and potatoes.
- Pour sourkraut in pot on top of onions, ribs and potatoes.
- Pour water over kraut.
- Put lid on pot and put in oven at 350 degrees for 3 hours.
- Remove and enjoy!
Delicious one pot meal! I used country style ribs, very lean. The searing of the meat and then the potatoes added great flavor. The potatoes were delicious with the meat drippings. This is good for a crowd or just a few. Loved it.
I love sourkraut, but this just turned into a mushy, vinegary, oily mess that made me sick when I ate it. Perhaps the ribs I used had too much fat? I would suggest a lean meat to avoid a layer of oil over this dish.
Very good! I saw Paula make this on TV the other day and searched especially for this recipe. I was so glad that someone had posted it. I made a few changes, however. I used country ribs instead of baby backs, used chicken stock instead of water and didn't sear the ribs. I threw everything in the crock pot and cooked on low for about 10 hours. The ribs were packed with flavor and falling apart. Thanks so much.
