Picture of Easy sauerkraut and sausage
Bratwursts or kielbasa cooked with onions and sauerkraut, perfect for a quick dinner or lunch. It's great with mashed potatoes, cabbage, and lots of hot mustard... and a beer if'n you're of the age to be consuming such things. :D

Step 1: Ingredients!

Picture of Ingredients!
Nothing too fancy in this one:
  • 4 large or 8 small sausages of the kielbasa or bratwurst variety
  • two good handfuls of sauerkraut (about 2 cups, I would guess)
  • one large onion, sliced
  • salt and pepper
  • about a tablespoon of red wine vinegar
  • 1/3 cup water
You'll also need a large skillet to cook it in. :)

I was worried the sauerkraut would be overpowering, but this dish is so nice and so easy. Love it!

Great tips for this dish. I would add that if you start with uncooked brats or other sausage, boil them in beer first.

Oh yes, great recipe, instructions and photo's. I am starving now.

I like mine with either mashed potatoes, boiled potatoes or potato pancakes. Only thing is..... I want REAL potato pancakes made with fresh grated potatoes like my mom used to make.

I will be happy with any of the above, even mashed potatoes from the box.

Yes, it's definitely the best with potatoes. :D

I do not understand how this is an instructable? All you are doing is putting ingredients in a pan...
Still, it looks yummy.

Well, you pretty much described cooking, ha. :) This is one of the easiest recipes I do, hence the lack of fancy footwork and instructions.
