Sauerkraut and Spareribs
360 mins (cooking 360)
2 ingredients
4 servings
This is a New Year's Day tradition for my hubby's family. It has German origins and is supposed to bring good luck in the New Year. Note: My MIL says that the spareribs must be country-style; baby back don't work for this one. The amount of sauerkraut used depends on how much you want to eat. We found 2 cans to be too much; next time, we'll scale it down to 1 1/2.*Note: In light of Charlotte J's review, I also want to suggest adding apples or onions if you feel that it needs more flavor. This is how hubby's family has done this one for years, and I would probably tinker with it if given the chance, but I better not mess with his tradition ;)
