Number of Servings: 7


    1.4 lbs Country-style Boneless Ribs (7)
    7 Small Red Potatoes, pealed & quartered (1.5 lb. pealed)
    20 Baby Carrots
    1 Medium Onion, chopped
    2 Cans (14.4 oz) Bavarian Sauerkraut
    2 Medium Apples, pealed and sliced
    Maggi Spice #1 (German)
    Mrs. Dash


In a crock pot, place the ribs on the bottom. Sprinkle ribs generously with German Maggi Spice #1. Layer the potatoes & carrots (season with Mrs. Dash), onion, sauerkraut and finally the apple on top. Mrs. Dash or just salt & pepper could be substituted for the German spice but it won't be quite as authentic. If using plain sauerkraut, sprinkle with 1 tsp. carraway seeds. Cook on low for 4-6 hours. Makes seven 12oz,. servings.

    I didn't make this yet. Only thing I don't like is 7 servings. I like to be able to halve a recipe and it's hard to do that and use it in the nutrition planner with 7 servings. - 5/7/10

  • Great one-dish meal. I left the peel on the potatoes for extra fiber and had to substitute some seasoning for the German spices. Will try to find Maggi Spice #1 and make it again. - 8/10/08

  • I made this, but didn't really care for the sauerkraut too much. I guess it IS an acquired taste. Meat was very tasty and tender, I just had to pick around to get to it lol. Half of the family liked it, half didn't. - 8/2/08

  • I didn't try your recipe, but my grandma has been making this since I was a little girl, and she passed the recipe on to me. It's definitely and acquired taste, and maybe it's the german in me, but I love this recipe! The only thing I do different is add carrots as well. - 7/31/08

    Carrots would probably be great in it too! Thanks for the suggestion.
