Our family has enjoyed this simple, German style, dinner together ever since Andrew & I became Mr. & Mrs.. Theres no technical or fancy name for it, so we just roll with German Dinner.
You can use bratwurst, a large link sausage of various kinds, or ground spiced meats (think breakfast types). It even works with a Chorizo! My personal favorite is a chicken sausage with apples and gouda cheese. Deelish!!!
We like to fry them up in a little EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil) until slightly carmelizing.
Add one can of sauerkraut, we prefer Frank's brand. Recently I used the sweet, Bavarian type. Add this undrained.
Let this steam for a while until slightly softened and stir lightly to combine.
Add a large bunch of freshly washed and stemmed kale greens. One can also substitute mustard greens or even spinach as preferred. Let these steam for about 5 mins. Add 1-3 cloves of finely chopped fresh garlic, lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper, and 4-8 dried red pepper flakes.
Eat it. All of it. Youll thank me later. Andrew adds that a good, authentic German beer always helps things along too!
