From Polish Country House Kitchen's Hunter's Stew (Bigos)

Kate Williams 3 comments

Bigos, or traditional Polish Hunter's Stew, is one of those homey recipes that changes from home to home. In fact, in From A Polish Country House Kitchen, Anne Applebaum and Danielle Crittenden describe the stew as Poland's version of chili—long stewed meat with a suggestion of vegetable served with thick rustic bread. Their take blends pork, venison, beef, veal, and sausage with cabbage, sauerkraut, and mushrooms for a no-nonsense, take-no-prisoners, hearty meal for the meatiest of meat lovers. In other words, it's an awesome addition to your late winter repertoire. More

The Food Lab: The Best Way To Grill Sausages

The Food Lab J. Kenji López-Alt 69 comments

Haven't you ever wished that your juicy pork chops were perfectly seasoned all the way to the center? Or that your tender pork tenderloin were just a bit juicier and fattier? Or maybe that your flavorful, smoky ribs had a decisive snap to their bite? Sausages combine the best characteristics of all the other popular cuts of pork into one perfectly juicy, always tender, well-seasoned through-and-through package. They really are one of the ideal foods for the backyard grill. That is, provided two simple things: you start with great sausages, and you don't mess'em up. That's easier said than done. More

Grilled Hot Dogs with Sauerkraut

Serious Eats J. Kenji López-Alt Post a comment

The key to perfectly cooked hot dogs on the grill is to start them in a moist bath of flavorful toppings, slow cooking them to infuse them with flavor and get an even cook, then finishing them off over the hot side to crisp and char them. More

In a Pickle Marisa McClellan 17 comments

Most of us don't have the space for large sauerkraut crocks or the desire to eat it every single day of winter (thankfully, it's not our only way to keep away the scurvy anymore). However, for those of you who have a taste for homemade sauerkraut, here's a way to make it in small batches without any special equipment (beyond a single quart jar). More

Dinner Tonight: Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Sauerkraut on Rye

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 5 comments

I can't look at the name of this recipe from Simply Recipes and not think of Brad Pitt in Inglorious Bastards going on about "sauerkraut sandwiches." You know the scene? OK, it's not exactly the most delicious image, but to be fair, this is still one of the better versions of grilled cheeses in my book. More

Dinner Tonight: Sauteed Pork Chops with Sauerkraut

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 8 comments

I decided that I need more sauerkraut in my life. You ever get that feeling too? On my last trip to the grocery store, I bought a huge jar of the stuff. Obviously it makes a hot dog better, but what else could it do? This recipe from Gourmet for pork chops with kraut sounded good. More

A Sandwich a Day: Porchetta and Fennel Sauerkraut at Wildwood in Portland, OR

A Sandwich a Day Adam Lindsley 3 comments

There's no shortage of great sandwiches in Portland, and the fennel-marinated porchetta and fennel sauerkraut from Wildwood is one of our favorites. Chef Dustin Clark marinates the pork for 12 hours in olive oil, fennel seed, fennel frond, caramelized fennel, garlic, chile flake, salt, and pepper, before a 12-hour slow roast makes it fall-apart tender.

Great Smoky Bacon, Country Ham, and Sauerkraut Pie

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 5 comments

This Great Smoky Bacon, Country Ham, and Sauerkraut Pie is a savory pie somewhere between a quiche and choucroute. I know the combination doesn't sound all that appealing at first, but in this case it really works. A custardy mix of eggs and cream are mixed with caramelized onions, sauerkraut, and caraway seeds, all poured into a pie crust that's been brushed with Dijon mustard. On top of that goes chopped country ham and a bit of chopped parsley—it does wonders to lend a lightness to what's otherwise a very serious pie. More
