      The only reason I'm giving this 4 and not 5 is that the potato layer didn't cook through properly although I left it in the oven an extra half hour which caused the top layer of kraut to get too brown, so I just scraped it as well as the potatoes off carefully, the dogs will enjoy it tomorrow as a treat. The flavour of the apple/kraut layer was fabulous. I used 3 lbs of spareribs that I cooked first, with a commercial rub (Some kind of Wonderful brand), and one cup of water, in a covered roasting pan for 1 hr and substituted them for the pork chops. I didn't have any juniper berries so I added about 1/4 gin into the sauerkraut with the beer to get that juniper flavour and I doubled the brown sugar as well and it worked quite well. I also forgot the garlic but it wasn't missed by us and we love garlic. I will definitely be making this regularly but I will either cook the potatoes first then grate them, or just omit them and add more apples in their place. This was REALLY GOOD! I used Fuji apples as that was what I had in the fridge to use up. DELICIOUS!
