This recipe for slow cooker kielbasa and sauerkraut may be one of the easiest recipes you will ever make. It only takes about 10 minutes of preparation time and you will have a piping hot dinner ready in about 5 hours. Considering that kielbasa is often on-sale, this is also an entrée that you can make for under $10. You can add more or less kielbasa to the slow cooker depending on your needs. If you do that, you don't necessarily need to double the amount of sauerkraut, unless you want to. If you think your kids would never eat sauerkraut, you might be surprised after serving this dish. Rinsing the sauerkraut and adding brown sugar and caraway seeds results in more of "sweetkraut" rather than a "sourkraut". Even if you don't eat a lot of the sauerkraut, it provides a nice bed to cook the kielbasa on in the slow cooker.
Prep: 10 minutes. Cooking Time: 4-6 hours
2# sauerkraut (I buy the refrigerated variety that comes in a bag)
½ cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon caraway seeds
2 links Kielbasa or Polish Sausage
½ cup apple juice
Pour the sauerkraut into a colander and rinse very well with water. Allow to drain, using a spoon to press out extra water. Place the rinsed and drained sauerkraut into a slow cooker. Add the brown sugar, salt, and caraway seeds to the sauerkraut, mixing well. Place the kielbasa on top. Pour the apple juice over the kielbasa. Don’t stir. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours.
