Extremely Easy Choucroute Garnie

Extremely Easy Choucroute Garnie

This is a sour stew from the Alsace region in France. It looks a bit plain, but I assure you it's very good. Try garnishing with whole grain mustard.

Ingredients: 2 people

Coarsely-ground sausage
2 sausages
2 frankfurters
Blocked ham
100 g (3.5 oz)
10 g (0.35 oz)
Olive oil
1 tablespoon
White wine
150 cc (5.07 oz)
White wine vinegar
3 tablespoons
Instant bouillon cubes
1 cube
Bay leaf


1. Julienne the cabbage (lots of it). Cut the block ham in half, and if you don't like the sausage skin getting torn, then poke it in several places with a fork.
2. Heat butter and olive oil, and fry the cabbage. After it wilts, add white wine, wine vinegar, consomme, and bay leaf.
3. After bring it to a boil, add ham, sausages, frankfurters, and salt and pepper, cover and let boil for 15 minutes.

Story Behind this Recipe

The sauerkraut available for sale is strangely sweet, and not to my liking. So, I thought up a way to make it easily. This recipe was previously titled "German-style." but users "Citron@France" and "Jock" kindly informed that it is French style.
