This a VERY different yet, delicious way to fix pork and sauerkraut. We loved it. Very easy to prepare, I made it just like the recipe said except made it using 2 pork steaks & 2 sausages, added same amount of onion, tomatoes, spices & sauerkraut. I could have made a meal just on the tomatoes & sauerkraut combination, yummy. Than you Ellie for sharing the recipe.
