1 28oz can sauerkraut,drained well
3 slices of bacon, chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
1/4 cup canola oil
1 can beer
1/4 tsp paprika
1 tsp caraway seeds ( I did not use)
salt and pepper
Fry bacon until crispy, remove from the pan and discard fat.
Add 1/3 cup canola oil ,onion ,paprika , caraway seeds, if using them, salt and pepper.
Mix and saute for 10 minutes.
Add bacon and 1 bottle/can of beer.
Let simmer for 1/2 hour with the lid off, then cover and simmer 15 more minutes.
The flavor is really amazing and tastes so good on hot dogs. Or add cut up kielbasa to the sauerkraut and serve with Rye bread.
