“This is an old family recipe brought from the old country by my great grandmother. All you need to do is add mashed potatoes for a complete meal. This either cooks on the stove, or you can cook it in a slow cooker.” - by Judy Dick
Original recipe yields 6 to 8 servings
- In a large bowl, combine the pork, onion, rice, egg, salt and ground black pepper. Mix well and form into 2 inch balls.
- For stove: Place one jar of the sauerkraut in a large pot over medium low heat. Then add the pork balls and cover with the other jar of sauerkraut. Simmer over medium low heat for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
- For slow cooker: Place one jar of sauerkraut in the bottom of the slow cooker. Add the pork balls and top with the other jar of sauerkraut. Cook on low setting for 8 to 10 hours.

"An improvement on my tried-and-true recipe - Can't get better than that. The pork balls are tender, delicious and easy to serve and eat. This is a wonderful comfort meal. The only negative comment ..." See morecame from one eater saying I should have rinsed the sauerkraut and added water to reduce the acidity."
"This is a good recipe, I have made it and also expanded on it several times. If you don't like sauerkraut then it is not for you, but for us who have Polish roots it's a favorite. A word about the ri..." See morece, unless you are using minute rice always precook your rice or at least cook it halfway to done before putting it in a recipe like this one. I have also made this dish using the suggestion of another reviewer of adding the can of tomato soup. If you really feel lucky then put a layer of fresh cabbage on the bottom of the pot then your meatballs and add a half of the tomato soup and finish it off on the top with one of the cans of sauerkraut (only use one can of Kraut) and finish with the other half can of soup.This is similar to a stew my grandma use to make at New years. Very good but only if you like cabbage!"
