Saurkraut, sausage & potato stew

by RichardAtkinson » Fri Jan 19, 2007 11:57 am

I saw a version of this done on Emeril the other night. He deglazed with a hard apple cider. I'm not a huge fan of apples w/ pork..although its a classic combo. Also his was more of a soup. Ours has always been a hearty stew

1 1/2 pound smoked sausage, diced

2 celery pieces, chopped

1 large onion, chopped

chopped garlic to taste or 3-4 cloves

1 large jar saurkraut (drained and rinsed)

8 cups chicken stock ( I used canned )

2-3 cups sliced potatoes

fresh thyme to taste

~ Cook sausage over medium-high heat until its well browned . Save the fat.

~ Add the onions & celery & cook, until vegetables lightly browned.

~ Add the garlic and cook

~ Add a bit of white wine to deglaze. ( I like to use an acidic wine for this dish. Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling…or even beer would work)

~ Add the sauerkraut, broth, potatoes, thyme and pepper and bring to a boil.

~ Simmer uncovered until potatoes are well cooked . Season w/ pepper but taste before adding salt since the saurkraut can have some residual.

~ Optional thickening w/ cornstarch & chicken stock.

A crusty loaf of bread and some Sauvignon Blanc or Riesling and you’re off. Perfect meal for a wintry evening.
