Recipe for fried sauerkraut
If you haven’t bought already grated sauerkraut you should grate it yourself. Chop the onion to small pieces and fry it on grease or oil, and then in the same pot add sauerkraut. First fry it on a stronger fire with frequent steering, and then cover it and let it fry on a light fire for half an hour, with occasional addition of water and/or grease or oil (of course, if needed).
Meanwhile, in deeper plate bake sausages in a little bit of water, and then brown it a little with the addition of water. Save the grease from the sausages.
Fried and flavored sour cabbage put into a refractory glass vessel.
On the top of the cabbage align sausages and cover fried cabbage with grease from the pan in which you baked sausages. The taste is great, especially if the sausages are spicy….
Dish with fried cabbage and sausages put in previously heated oven to brown it. Worm up the oven to 250oC (480oF) and bake cabbage on that temperature for 5-10 minutes, and then lower the temperature to 200oC (390oF).
Instead of sausages you can use dry bacon or smoked ribs.
Serve it worm with a mug of beer.
