Day 75: Country Ribs and Sauerkraut

2 27 oz cans saurkraut, drained and rinsed
2-3 lbs country style pork ribs, cut into serving size pieces
6 slices bacon, browned
3-4 tbsp caraway seeds (I totally forgot to put these in)
2 cups water
1. Place alternating layers of sauerkraut and ribs in slow cooker, starting and ending with saurkraut.
2. Crumble bacon and mix gently into top layer of sauerkraut. Sprinkle with caraway seeds. Pour water over all.
3. Cover. Cook on low 7-8 hours. (I was a little nervous to try this recipe but it was fabulouso! Loved it. Very good flavor and super easy with very few ingredients. I made my bacon on the george foreman grill which worked great by the way. On a side note, I love my george foreman grill because it has dishwasher safe removeable plates which makes cleanup so much easier! I give this recipe 4 stars.)


  1. Made this the other day. It was ok. Not something I'd make a lot. However, we thought it was much better the second day as sandwiches! Throw some peperchini's on it and some mayo and it made a heck of a sandwich. Next time(yes, there will be a next time), I'm going to try sausage instead of ribs. I think it'd be fab with sliced up sausage links in it!
