Polish sauerkraut soup is easy and delicious.

Polish Sauerkraut Soup

Polish sauerkraut soup is easy, versatile and can be made in the crock pot, slow cooker or on top of the stove.  The recipe can be easily cut in half or doubled for a crowd.  This soup keeps well for several days refrigerated and you can use just about any kind of pork in the recipe.  My family loves this soup served with our favorite recipe for cornbread muffins.

Polish sauerkraut soup is one of our favorite comfort foods and we can eat this soup anytime.

1 (1 pound) package Polish kielbasa, cut in rounds (could use pork stew meat or ground pork sausage)

1 large onion, chopped

3 to 4 medium carrots, scraped and chopped

3 to 4 medium potatoes, peeled and cut in pieces

1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained

1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth or about 2 cups

1 cup water

2 cups sauerkraut or 1 (14.5 ounce) can (Canned sauerkraut should be drained and rinsed several times)

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1 bay leaf

1/2 teaspoon thyme

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

1 teaspoon minced garlic

Salt to taste

I usually brown my sausage and onions in about 2 tablespoons of butter or oil before adding to crock pot but this is not necessary.  Add all ingredients to crock pot, stir to combine. Cook on low for 6 to 7 hours or high for 4 hours or until carrots and potatoes are cooked.  Makes a 3 quart crock pot almost full or about 8 to 10 servings.  Enjoy!

    Carrots are listed twice in this recipe, should one be potatoes?

  2. Carrots appear twice in ingredient list, potatoes do not appear. I’m assuming that one of the carrots should really be potatoes.
