I hear even Dracula loves SMF and all the smoked goodies here!
Haven't made this dish in years. Also haven't made any sausage or bacon for awhile, so...
Our West Side Market in Cleveland, recently added Sundays to their schedule. Wow, the crowd, seemed like they were giving stuff away for free. Picked up some Hungarian double-smoked bacon and sausage. Wanted to get some good bread, but, with all those people there I said, forget it. Picked up a loaf of Italian on the way home. (which is also good )
Whether you're just checking it out or possibly making it down the road, Enjoy!
Ended up using three jars of kraut
Chopped sweet onion
Finely chopped garlic
Double smoked Hungarian bacon and sausage
Saute onion with salt and black pepper
Add the paprika
Add pork, season with salt and pepper and brown. I used 1.5 lbs of pork
Cook bacon till it starts rendering fat
Add sliced sausage
9.5 x 13.5 x 2
Rinse to taste and squeeze somewhat dry
Bottom layer of kraut
Add the cooked bacon, sausage and all or part of pan juices
Another layer of kraut and the parboiled rice on top (rice not shown here)
Add pork mixture with pan juices
I won't add rice like this again unless it's instant rice (see couple of steps above)
After last layer of kraut add 1 cup of water (very important)
Add sour cream
Bake 1.5+ Hrs at 325°F till golden brown
