Okay - I did fudge a bit - I didn't dredge my bacon in flour...just fried it....I also fixed this in the crockpot using country styly ribs...but the flavor was great. The house smelled so good all day. I served this with mashed potatoes and german style green beans(another recipe on the site). It was a very filling German-style comfort food meal. DH & I at the kraut & pork on sandwiches the next evening for supper and those were tasty too.

This recipe is VERY tasty! I threw everything in the slow cooker and omitted the flour on the bacon, as I'm a low carber. It tastes great, I highly recommend it!
