“This is a recipe i made up 2 weeks ago. It is medium spicy and my family loved it. We love ribs and sauerkraut so I served sauerkraut on the side. I only use Franks sauerkraut, it has just the right taste. You may not think that the ingredients don't sound good but all the flavors will come together.”
