Hot sauerkraut and sausage

Jerry Stratton, September 2, 1995

This recipe uses all of the strengths of the crockpot: mix it all up and let it sit for however long you wish.

Servings: 6
Preparation Time: 13 hours


  • 1 32 oz jar of sauerkraut
  • 1 pound polish sausage, sliced and browned
  • 1/2 cup quinoa
  • 1 diced jalapeño
  • 1 diced onion
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tblsp fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 tsp whole fennel
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • water


  1. Put everything into the crockpot.
  2. Put in almost enough water to cover the ingredients.
  3. Leave crockpot on low for twelve hours.

The quinoa could probably be replaced with rice. It is used mainly as a thickener. If even more thickness is desired, add 1/4 to 1/2 cup quinoa an hour before completed, and leave uncovered on high for one hour.
