Recipe: Sauerkraut Salat

The sauerkraut that I am fermenting is not done yet, so I used store-bought sauerkraut to try this recipe. When my sauerkraut is done (and assuming it turns out well), I will share the method for fermenting your own sauerkraut at home.

Sauerkraut salat

500 grams (18 oz) sauerkraut
1 onion, diced
3/4 liter (ca. 3 1/8 C) beef broth
1 pinch of cumin
1 bay leaf
1 dash of oil
1 pinch pepper
1 pinch of salt
3 juniper berries

1. Wash and pat dry the sauerkraut.

2. Heat oil or lard in a saucepan and fry the diced onion until golden.

3. Add the rinsed sauerkraut and beef broth, stir.

4. Add all the spices, stir, then cook uncovered 20-25 minutes, stirring often.

TIP: Make this dish a day ahead of time, then reheat and serve.
