A simpler recipe is for cooks who just want cooked sauerkraut. First, soak the sauerkraut in some water for five minutes. Then drain and rinse the raw sauerkraut in a colander. Press the sauerkraut between hands to wring out any excess water until the sauerkraut is soft and all the dirt is washed out. Then place the sauerkraut in a crock pot and cook it with 2 cups of white wine or water for eight hours on low or four hours on high. Use a slotted spoon to serve, and use salt and pepper for taste.

Another recipe contains one can of stewed tomatoes, one large chopped onion, half a chopped green pepper, one sliced smoked sausage and one sliced spicy hot sausage. Add garlic powder and pepper to taste and the first four ingredients, and cook the mixture on low for four hours, then add the sausage and cook for another two hours.
