“I adapted this recipe from Gudrun Rutschitzka's 'Neue Landfrauen Rezepte'. Posted for the Zaar World Tour 2006. I haven't tried it yet, but it's described as quick and heavenly. It's not really that quick actually, but once you've done the main browning and frying, it just cooks itself.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a heavy based frying pan, heat the drippings and fry the bacon until golden.
  2. Add the ground meat to brown, making sure you brake it up well.
  3. Once the meat is no longer pink, add tone of the onions and fry for a further 6-8 minutes.
  4. Add the broth and mix in the sauerkraut.
  5. Add the garlic, together with all the spices and tomato puree.
  6. Stir well and season with salt, pepper and cayenne pepper to taste.
