Pork Spareribs & Sauerkraut

My mother grew up in this house in Rockland County with her 4 siblings, her parents and her grandmother. Quite a lot of mouths to feed !

Lots of memories

My grandparents made sure to spend every dollar they earned wisely; going to multiple markets to get the best deal each weekend and making dishes such as this, which can feed a whole family with just a few inexpensive ingredients.

This is an easy (1-2-3), one-pot dish, ideal for a weeknight meal or any cold winter day.

2 lb pork spareribs (you could also substitute pork shoulder or kielbasa)
27oz Sauerkraut
1-2 Potatoes (optional)

1) Start by separating the ribs and add them to a large pot.

2)  Cut the potatoes into large chunks and add them to the pot.

3) Add the sauerkraut and simmer on low for about 2 hours, stirring occasionally.

The pork should be falling off the bone, of course. As you stir the pot, the pork will combine with the kraut giving it a delicious flavor and cutting down on some of its sourness.

Season with salt & pepper and enjoy !
