Very good, very easy to make, easier to eat! I've never heard of sauerkraut soup but notice that there are others posted in this website, and I'm going to try them also. This recipe has a few typos, didn't know what size canned tomatoes to use so used a small one.

This was so easy and so delicious! Very tangy and flavorful and my family loved it! I used ground beef instead of short ribs, let it simmer for about twenty minutes and it was done in thirty minutes instead of an hour and thirty minutes. Great recipe, I'm glad I found it!
