“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.”

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 came 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 rice, 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!

This recipe was a good alternative to cabbage rolls. I added a can of tomato soup and a can of water to take away some of the sourness of the kraut. We really liked it.
