A Post about Sauerkraut

A while back, I was watching a Rachel Ray cooking show with my older sister and newborn niece, and when she made a reuben sandwich with sauerkraut, I nearly died.

The next day, I wanted sauerkraut so badly that I hit up a local hot dog place that served veggie hot dogs with sauerkraut on top.  More than the rest of the hot dog, I enjoyed the pickle-y goodness and had to replicate it at home.


Cue Tofurkey.  I have previously eaten these fake sausages before and knew they'd be good in a dish with my beloved sauerkraut.  "The Ukrainian" pan-fried them with onions and enoki mushrooms (weird, but good!) and doused them in Lee Roy's BBQ sauce that we got from Foodbuzz Festival.


"The Ukrainian" put his in a roll.


As a side note, I also made a side of stir-fried broccoli.  I don't know how I could have only taken one, blurry picture, but here it is.

  1. I love pork and sourkrate (sp) lol once a year or so. It is a good break from the regular foods. Makes your taste buds dance.

  3. Sauerkraut is not something I dig, at all! The husband, however, could eat it for three meals a day.

  4. Saurkraut is a wonderful thing. Believe it or not, it makes a fantastic pizza topping as well!

  6. I'm a big fan of sauerkraut myself. I love it with keilbasa and pork roast! That was a go-to meal in my house growing up but I haven't had it for ages now.
