I first tried this dish at the house of an acquaintance of mine who specializes in German cuisine. It was from him that I learned how to make sauerkraut stew with smoked sausage. I used to eat sauerkraut on its own, add it to borscht or cabbage soup, and not use it in any other way. Now I make this dish often. You can use regular or smoked sausages, I used smoked sausage. This dish has a pleasant taste – when you want something with a sourness, it’s perfect!


Sauerkraut 300g
Smoked sausage 200g
Onions 100 g
Carrots 100g
Vegetable oil 50 g
