Sauerkraut and Kielbasa

One night last week, we decided to crack open a jar of homemade sauerkraut from last fall and add some chunks of kielbasa.  While we haven't eaten this in a while, it is a dish we've occasionally eaten since we got married.  This time though, I decided to change it up a little. 

I added a peeled diced apple and a sliced onion to the sauerkraut, and a few other little dabs of ingredients.  At first, Charlie wasn't too sure.  But after he tried it, he said he loved it.  I wrote the recipe down and will make sauerkraut and kielbasa this way all the time in the future!

One of the things I love about this dish is that it is so quick and easy, it is hearty and filling, and it is a "one pot" meal. 

Sauerkraut And Kielbasa

  • 1 package kielbasa
  • 1 jar sauerkraut
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 apple, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Heat a medium sized pot or dutch oven over medium-high heat.  Add butter and sugar.  Allow sugar to cook to a golden brown color.  Add onions and cook until slightly caramelized, about 10 minutes.  Then, stir in the kielbasa chunks, sauerkraut, chopped apple, Worcestershire sauce and butter, and cook for another 10 minutes or until everything is warm.  Serve immediately.  This is good with a nice piece of crusty bread or rolls.
