with Crockpot Sauerkraut

Beef Schaschlik

This is my favorite way of making sauerkraut now. Put all the ingredients in the crockpot and let it simmer for 8 hours.

1 large jar of Sauerkraut . (approx. 3cups)
4 cups beef stock
1 cup a amber or dark beer (optional)
2 apples cut in small chunks
1 medium diced white onion. ( about 1 cup) or 2 tablespoons dried onion
2 Cured l Pork Knuckle or, 4 Ham hocks

2 teaspoons caraway seed
2 teaspoons juniper berries
3 bay leaves

2 smoked sausages

These are Cured Pork Knuckles.
They may or may not be smoked.

These are smaller ham hocks
2 per person is perfect

I rinse the juice off the kraut. The reason is that it tends to get stronger when simmered for a long time.

I added all the ingredients into the crockpot and simmered for 8 hours.

Depending on the size of your crockpot you may have to adjust the amounts. This is a pretty flexible recipe.

A great plan is to start it in the morning and it will be ready by dinner.
