  • 4 jars Sauerkraut
  • 4 cans Italian-Style stewed tomatoes
  • 2 lbs Italian sausage links (hot or mild)
  • Garlic to taste (fresh or powdered)
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste


Step 1

Place Saurkraut in a collander with fresh water running over it and rinse and squeeze Sauerkraut well (usually two rinse and squeeze cycles but can be more or less depending on personal taste).

Step 2

Add sauerkraut to large pot.

Step 3

Squeeze tomatoes to break them up a bit over pot and pour in juice from tomatoes in pot.

Step 4

Cut up uncooked Italian sausage into bit-size pieces and place in pot (hint-sausage cuts easier partially frozen).

Step 5

Add plenty of pepper, garlic, and a little salt to taste.

Step 6

Bring to a boil over high heat, stir, put lid on pot, turn heat to low, and let simmer for 1.5 to 2 hours with lid on. Stir occasionally. Sauerkraut should be tender and sausage well cooked.

Step 7

Small amount of water can be added during cooking. It shouldn't be soupy but should have some juice.
