German Sauerkraut {Bohemian Style}


This sauerkraut is so flavorful. An even amount of tartness and sweet. It would be great as a side dish or as a condiment!

German Sauerkraut {Bohemian Style}
Recipe adapted from Chef Keem

1/2 lb bacon, chopped
1/2 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 teaspoon beef base
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon paprika
1/2 tablespoon pepper
1/2 tablespoon caraway seed
1 cup red wine
1 quart sauerkraut, rinsed
1 apple, skinned and grated
2 tablespoons roux, cold


  • In a pan over medium heat cook the bacon until halfway crispy. Add in the onion and garlic and cook until the bacon is completely crispy. 
  • Once ready, add the beef base, brown sugar, paprika, pepper and caraway seed. Mix thoroughly and cook for about 3 minutes.
  • Turn the heat down to a simmer and add the red wine, sauerkraut and grated apple and let simmer for about 5 minutes. Add the roux and simmer for another 15 minutes.
