  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced (four if you are a garlic lover)
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground sage
  • ground black pepper, to taste
  • 3 potatoes, peeled and diced (try to use a waxy potato like Yukon gold (russets will disintegrate in the baking process)
  • 1 (16 ounce) bag sauerkraut, from the deli aisle (not canned please)
  • 1 lb beef kielbasa, cut into 1/2 inch pieces (two if you're an insane sausage lover)


  1. Put the cold butter in a cold pan with the diced onion, and slowly bring to a simmer on medium heat.
  2. This brings out the sweetness of the onions.
  3. Simmer for about 10 minutes.
  4. Add minced garlic and simmer 2 more minutes.
  5. Add next 3 ingredients.
  6. Combine with the sauerkraut (undrained and not rinsed), kielbasa and potatoes.
  7. Bring to a simmer on the stove top.
  8. Cover loosely with foil and place in a preheated 225°F oven for 3 hours.
