Three simple ingredients combine to create this tasty and traditional Polish dish. If you're a fan of the slow cooker, this is a great meal to start in the morning and then forget about all day. This recipe brews in about an hour on the stove or can be simmered all day in the slow cooker. (For what it's worth, I'm not a fan of sauerkraut and still enjoyed this meal.)
My sister married a food loving family and they gave us some really fabulous recipes. Her mother-in-law grew up doing kapusta with her grandmother. His family traditionally serves this dish with pierogies and the combination is delicious. I will share how to do the pyrogies tomorrow!
Servings: 8 servings
- 1 jar of 28 ounce sauerkraut
- 2lbs NON-Smoked Polish / Kielbasa Sausage (If you can't find a non-smoked Polish sausage, the sausage will jump if necessary).
- 1 28-ounce jar of marinara sauce, or 1 five-minute marinara recipe
Pour the sauerkraut into a strainer over a bowl in the sink. Rinse well with water for at least 2-3 minutes. It is very important to remove the brine for this recipe. Let the rinsed sauerkraut rest in the strainer and drain as the rest of the dish begins.
SURFACE INSTRUCTIONS: Place sausages in bottom of large saucepan over medium-high heat. Turn them over as needed, to brown each side. Add the rinsed sauerkraut and marinara to the pot and reduce to a simmer. Bring to a simmer and cover with lid. Cook over low heat for 1 hour, or all day on very low heat. Stirring occasionally. If desired, remove the sausages and cut into slices just before serving. Enjoy!
HAMMER INSTRUCTIONS: Place sausages in skillet over medium-high heat. Turn them over as needed, to brown each side. (If desired, you can skip the browning step. Browning the sausages will add a little extra flavor, but is not required.) Place the sausages, rinsed sauerkraut, and marinara in the saucepan over low heat. Simmer all day, 6 to 10 hours. Stir occasionally, if desired (although not necessary). If desired, remove the sausages and cut into slices just before serving. Enjoy!
