  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet or Dutch oven over medium heat. Saute onions in butter until translucent. Stir in the sauerkraut and cola.
  2. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 1 hour, adding up to 1/2 cup of water if necessary to prevent sticking. Remove cover and increase heat to medium for at least 15 minutes, or until most of the juice cooks down, and the sauerkraut glistens.

Really good kraut! My 8 year old loved it.

Any recipe that starts with a whole stick of butter ought to have something going for it, right? Excellent - and it got the approval of my Slovak/Ukranian grandmother - a woman who knows her sa...

We added in smoked sausage dogs, and eat this on toasted hotdog buns. Out of a family of 6, 4 out of 6 enjoyed it. But hey, the two that didn't think it was wonderful, was my 2 youngest, ages 10...
