Grandpa's Sauerkraut and Kielbasa

I grew up asking for sauerkraut instead of candy as a child, and my grandfather always made it for me. This is my version of what he would make.

Ingredients

  • 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

    pound beef kielbasa, cut into 1/2 inch pieces (two if you're an insane sausage lover)

Directions

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