Lentil Soup
with Frankfurter
Linsensuppe mit Frankfurter

serves 6


1 large jar of Sauerkraut . (approx. 3cups)
4 cups beef stock
1 cup beer
2 apples cut in small chunks
1 medium diced white onion. ( about 1 cup)
1 large or 2 small ham hocks
2 smoked sausages
2 bratwurst
2 teaspoons caraway seed
2 teaspoons juniper berries
3 bay leaves


I rinse the juice off the kraut. The reason is that it tends to get stronger when simmered for a long time.

I added all the ingredients into the crockpot and simmered for 8 hours.

Depending on the size of your crockpot you may have to adjust the amounts. This is a pretty flexible recipe.

A great plan is to start it in the morning and it will be ready by dinner.
