Slow Cooker Polish Kapusta from Barefeet in the Kitchen

An easy slow-cooker version of Polish Kapusta; this one is for the sauerkraut fans.

I'm a big fan of sauerkraut, so when my friend Mary at Barefeet in the Kitchen posted this three-ingredient recipe for Slow Cooker Polish Kapusta a few months ago I immediately saved it to feature here.  Mary has a sister who married into a Polish family, and that's where she got this recipe which she says is often served with Pierogis.  And Mary reports she's not especially a sauerkraut fan but she loved this dish.

This recipe is so easy it might be pushing it a little on the from-scratch aspect of the site, but I thought it was too good not to share.  (And for those who make their own sauerkraut, Polish sausage, or even Marinara sauce, more power to you!)

Ingredients for this recipe:
  • Sauerkraut
  • Polish sausage
  • marinara sauce (link provided for homemade, or use from a jar.)

  1. I'm not a huge fan of sauerkraut, but when I saw that the recipe calls for rinsing off the brine, I'm going to try it!

  2. Lydia I thought that sounded good.
