Sauerkraut Recipe



  • 1 jar or can of fermented Sauerkraut
  • 1 medium sized onion
  • 2 strips of smoked bacon (leave it out for a vegetarian version)
  • 1 vegetable stock cube
  • vegetable oil (I always take olive oil)
  • caraway seeds
  • grated nutmeg
  • parsley

How to make Sauerkraut

Some people might think that the preparation of Sauerkraut was just heating up the content of a can. Let me prove these people wrong and try this way of preparing it

  1. cut the bacon into small slices
  2. chop up the onion into small pieces
  3. heat up some vegetable oil in a pot or high pan
  4. shallow fry the bacon and the onion
  5. now add the content of the jar with all the liquid into the pan
  6. add the vegetable stock cube, half a teaspoon of caraway seeds and a pinch of nutmeg
  7. shallow fry everything until it starts to stick to the pan, but donĀ“t let it burn!
  8. add some water, continue to sizzle and let it sizzle adding water every once in a while to avoid burning and sticking, do this for at least 15 minutes
  9. sprinkle some parsley on top
  10. serve with some good quality bratwurst sausages and boiled or mashed potatoes
