My MIL loves sauerkraut, so when I saw this recipe from Emeril Lagasse, I had to try it. You absolutely MUST rinse the sauerkraut thoroughly!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In a soup pot brown the kielbasa slices on medium-high (about 5 min).
  2. Add the onions and celery until soft and lightly browned (only a couple of min).
  3. Add the garlic (only 1 minute - don't let it scorch).
  4. Add the bottle of cider and reduce almost completely.
  5. Add the sauerkraut, chicken broth, potatoes, thyme and pepper and bring to a boil.
  6. Simmer on very low heat until potatoes and kraut are soft through (about 1 hour).
  7. Serve immediately (crusty sourdough is good accompaniment).
