Country Pork Ribs and Sauerkraut
My mom made this when I was a kid growing up. I remember smelling this, waiting was so hard. I changed it a little so my kids love it now as much as I did. The pineapple with the sauerkraut really makes it different and very tasty.

Oh so good! Was a little skeptical at first because I don't normally like fruit with meat. But decided to try it and it was delicious. Sweet and tangy. Had a large pkg of ribs so on a whim invited friends to join us. Thumbs up! They also loved it. Shared the recipe with two of my BF's one has already made it and they loved it.
I wish I could give this more than five stars - even my DH said it was worth 10. What an absolutely simple recipe to prepare to end up tasting so wonderful. The addition of pineapple to the sauerkraut is a truly inspirational addition as it mellows the sauerkraut enough to entice, even me, to go back for seconds. Thank you aprincessmom for posting this - this will be used regularly!
