Quick and easy sauerkraut – Alsatian recipe


The traditional Alsatian dish!

Well, we continue in the winter dishes, since the cold still does not decide to let us go (there is even snow still …). I'm getting very tired, I bought beautiful dresses and sandals and I can't even wear them. I want the sun !!!!

Meanwhile, there is sauerkraut! An ultra easy recipe (it cooks alone) and especially fast in the pressure cooker (it doesn't need 7 hours of cooking!). I only put 3 types of meat because we are only two, but you can add more: kassler, Strasbourg sausage, ham, etc. The real sauerkraut, which you can try in Alsatian restaurants, has no less than 7 different meats!
