I had a leftover pork roast that I had seasoned with Penzey's Bavarian seasoning and I wanted to use the pork roast in a way that would compliment the seasonings. I used pre-cooked brown rice and threw in about 1/2 tsp of caraway seeds. I did not layer this. I just mixed the main ingredients together and put the topping on it, which I found curious but makes for a tasty casserole. My DH liked it and said it is a do-over and he would like to taste it made it with the ground beef. Thanks, Potatohead!
I'm already a sauerkraut fan, so this recipe pleased me immensely. I like variety and this is a new taste for kraut. I wasn't sure on the layering, so I did beef, kraut, rice, kraut, then topping. I wanted to be sure the rice would cook, and it did. Thanks potatohead, I will be making this again! Made and enjoyed for PAC Spring '09.
