Choucroute Garnie (Sauerkraut and Meat)

“This is my own invention, and some ideas from old cookbooks. My husband and I were married in Germany 43 years ago, and I loved the cooking that I experienced there. It's a complete meal, but not as heavy as some of the German cooking of the past. Enjoy!30”
