How to Make Choucroute Garnie

  1. Take a big plastic bag which could be re-sealed. Merge together 1/3 cup of kosher salt and sugar. Include the pork ribs; shake thoroughly to have the ribs fully coated with the seasonings. Next, seal the bag and set the ribs in the fridge overnight or for up to 24hrs.
  2. The next morning, preheat your oven to 300°. Bathe the sauerkraut in cold water and drain. Take a large roasting pan and set over 2 burners on high heat and work to melt the duck fat.
  3. Put in the onion and garlic and fry over moderate to low heat. Keep stirring. Cook until softened or for 7 minutes. Mix in the sauerkraut, juniper berries, bay leaves, caraway seeds, black pepper, stock and wine on high heat and bring to a continuing boil.
  4. Simultaneously, wash the pork ribs under cold water and dry. Snuggle the pork ribs in the sauerkraut and again bring to a boil over reasonably high heat. Cover up firmly with foil and bake for 1 ½ hours.
  5. Take away the pork ribs from the sauerkraut. Slit the ribs from the center and return to the sauerkraut. Include the kielbasa, hot dogs and ham. Cover up and let bake until the meats are hot, around 25 minutes. Remove the bay leaves and discard.
  6. In a large saucepan, add potatoes and cover with cold water. Over high heat, sprinkle salt and bring to a boil. Next, cook the potatoes until they are soft when pierced. Drain and cover to keep warm.
  7. Pile up the hot sauerkraut in the center of hot dinner plates and push in the pork ribs and the kielbasa to serve. Position the hot dogs and ham around the sauerkraut.
  8. Serve with boiled potatoes and varied mustards.


Despite the fact that choucroute garnie is a German and Eastern-European dish, the French extension of Alsace and Lorraine, conveyed this dish to the French culinary specialists and it has since then been popular in France.
