Choucroute Garnie

Choucroute is French for "sauerkraut." This stick-to-your-ribs dish is made with much enthusiasm in the northeastern French region of Alsace. Served with beer or the same wine used in the dish, choucroute satisfies the soul on a cold winter's night. Serve with good country-style rye bread and plenty of hot mustard for the sausage.

Easy, flavorful comfort food

The taste, texture, and appearance of the dish were outstanding, though the juniper berries were very different - not bad, just different. I'm not sure yet whether I will remove them at the end of cooking next time around or if I will just use half as many, but it is certainly delicious enough to experiment and figure out how to get that taste right. I found the potatoes needed 10-15 minutes longer to cook than the 30 minutes stated in the recipe, but that could have to do with my being at high altitude (8500 feet). There is no need to add salt to this recipe. Be sure to serve with spicy mustard!
Pros: Yield, Good Value, Easy, Healthy, Appearance, Impressive, Will Make Again
