This delicious sauerkraut recipe is simple to prepare. All it needs is basically throwing all the ingredients into the pot and give them some cooking time. Also, I discovered that a pinch of cinnamon improves the taste.
Put the fatback into a big pot and set the plate to low-mid heat
Meanwhile, cut the onions into rough pieces
When the fatback pieces start to become crispy and their fat covers the bottom of the pot, put the pork belly in, turn to mid-high heat and sear it on the skin side
Flip the pork belly, add the kassler and sear it on the skin side, too
Now, throw in the sausages and onion pieces
Fry everything about 5 minutes at medium heat
Then, add the sauerkraut and all remaining ingredients, including the seasonings
And finally, let it cook for about 5 hours at low heat with the lid on
Stir occasionally and if necessary, add some water
It is perfect, when the meat seperates from the bone by itself.
Kassler is the name of a cured and smoked cut of pork. Its roots are in the German cuisine. Pork necks and loins are the most commonly used cuts, although ribs, shoulders and bellies can also be used. In addition, kassler is often served with sauerkraut.
