I gathered my supplies...
20 oz. can sauerkraut
1/3 c. brown sugar, packed
1 1/2 lbs. pork sausage links, sliced
1 onion, slicedCombine sauerkraut and brown sugar in your slow cooker and mix well. This was a little weird. Brown sugar and sauerkraut? I started to doubt...
Then you arrange the sausage and onion on top...I did not notice you were supposed to slice the pork sausages. Put the lid on and cook on HIGH setting for 2 hours, adding water if necessary. It was not necessary for me. Then reduce heat to LOW setting, replace the lid and cook for an additional 2 hours.
I served it with pinto beans and cornbread. Manga Dork pushed this all the way to NUMBER ONE! It beat out the pork chops! Dr. Hubby cleaned his plate. My FIL and SIL finished off my leftovers. This cookin' thing is a blast and it is doing wonders for my self esteem!
This weekend I picked up the "fabulicious" Teresa Giudice's book, Skinny Italian. Teresa is on Real Housewives of New Jersey and is by far my FAVORITE housewife of all the cities...I love love love her. I have already finished reading it cover to cover...first book I have read in 2010! My goal is to pull off a traditional 5 course Italian meal. You don't have to be a Real Housewife fan to enjoy this book, but you will get the little "jokes" if you are. The sauce recipe she named after Danielle cracked me up! There are even "Juicy Bits from Joe." You can check it out at your library, but I would suggest buying it...you are going to want your own copy!
