SAUERKRAUT – KETO FRIENDLY

IMG_7035

I find that if my meals are easy to make, the more likely I am to make them.  This dish I have not made for a long while and was reminded by a picture of a recipe I had seen on a blog called Marilyn’s Treats.

My mother and grandmother used to make this dish.  I can’t say that sauerkraut was a staple in our home but it was  not uncommon to have it from time to time.  My favourite way to eat it was in perogy.  Oh and the next day if any were left over you fried them.  Out of this world.

To add some sauerkraut into your diet is not difficult and here is one recipe that I think you’ll all like.  The one thing you have to remember in having sauerkraut is to cook it.  Many times when we are out having a meal with sauerkraut even if it is on a sausage or hotdog it is not cooked or not cooked enough.  That is probably why many don’t like it.  Let’s start cooking the sauerkraut in a smaller portion to see how you feel about it.

RECIPE

1 1/2 cups sauerkraut, rinsed and squeezed 4 or 5 times

1 onion, chopped

Caraway seed, a pinch or two (opt.)

Butter, you choose the amount you would like

Water, approx. 1/2 cup

Salt and pepper to taste

PREPARATION

Place sauerkraut into a colander rinse with water then squeeze it as hard as you can.  Repeat this process 4-5 times.  Taste the sauerkraut to see if you like the level of sour.  If it is too strong then repeat the above steps until you like the taste.

Next add the sauerkraut and fry for a few minutes, add the kielbasa, fry                                 stirring while it is cooking.  You may add the caraway seeds here if you are                           using them.

Add 1/2 – 1 cup of water reduce heat and simmer for about 1/2 hour, loosely                           covering the pot and checking to make sure if the water has dissipated.  If it                         has then add a little more.  Basically what you are doing here is cooking the                         sauerkraut.  So if it is not cooked and there is no more water you have to                               add a little more and let it cook further.  Repeat this process until the                                     sauerkraut is tender.

Serve along side meat, breaded cutlets are good or just with bread or buns.  My choice here was fresh Keto bread.

ENJOY!
