Sauteed Sauerkraut with Smoked Sausage

Sauteed Sauerkraut with Smoked Sausage

As I mentioned many times during these years of blogging how some dishes, including this tasty Sauteed Sauerkraut with Smoked Sausage, always transport me to my childhood.

I had a good childhood and happiest memories are tied to food.

I grew up on a smallish farm, and the produce was mainly picked from the garden, fruit from the backyard.

The meat was also provided and always organic, fish caught from the river and dairy made from raw milk.


There was no need to go grocery shopping all the time. Simply because everything that we needed was there, a few feet away.

Growing like that for me also means a very fortunate life. Maybe, that’s why I love a home-cooked meal, and I have such a love affair with food.

Sauteed Sauerkraut with Smoked Sausage

I think every household has their favourite dishes. They usually end up on the dining room table on a weekend when a family gathers. 

I was never a picky eater. However, some of the favourites were actually fermented cabbage or as many knows as sauerkraut.

As well as bean soupbeef goulash or stew or stew and on Sunday, my Grandmas Chicken and roasted potatoes. 

Those were probably my top op three dishes that I could never resist, but dip, homemade fresh from the oven and still bit warm bread.

I just love mopping the bottom of the pot or pan with hot bread. If you never made my homemade bread then go and check it out. It is one of the best.

Well, I posted a similar recipe when I started blogging, but my taste did change a bit.

I made this Sauteed Sauerkraut with Smoked Sausage. It is out of this world delicious and all you need is just a simple few ingredients.

Sauteed Sauerkraut with Smoked Sausage is an amazing winter dinner


  • 1 ½ Tbs. Vegetable Oil or any on hand, bacon fat works too
  • 2 Cups Smoked Sausage sliced
  • 2 cups Shredded or chopped Sauerkraut store-bought or homemade
  • 3 garlic cloves crushed and minced
  • 2 dashes Ground Black Pepper


  1. Heat the oil and drop about ½ of the minced garlic, stir but do not let it burn; also turn down the heat to low-medium.
  2. Add Sliced sausage, stir until it gets brownish. If you eat bacon you can saute bacon as well. 
  3. Add Sauerkraut on top and stir all together, it might have some water in, and that’s alright because it will give you more flavor; toss the rest of the minced garlic on top and stir.
  4. Add ground black pepper and stir to combine. 
  5. Cook until most of the liquid evaporates, stir and you will have sauteed sauerkraut after 7-10 minutes.
  6. You can also try this recipe with cooked pasta, sauteed with Sauerkraut


For the soup option just add beef or vegetable broth on top. Let it boil for 20 minutes under the lid, add salt if needed and you can actually add about 1/2 cup of rice or a couple of cubed potatoes and carrots to the soup, and boil until tender.
