Units Scale
  • 1 cup of sauerkraut
  • 1 Tbsp cooking oil


  1. Scoop 1 cup of sauerkraut out of a jar. Place it in a fine-mesh strainer to drain for at least 5 minutes.
  2. Use the back of a spoon to squeeze out any residual liquid.
  3. Warm a frying pan on medium heat.
  4. Start by cooking everything else that is going to be served with the sauerkraut.
  5. When all the other food is almost ready, take a large spoonful of sauerkraut (about 1/2 cup per person) and drop it on the frying pan.
  6. Fry for 2 to 4 minutes, until warmed through. If you don’t care about the probiotics, it’s fine to fry until the kraut starts to turn golden brown and crispy on the edges.
  7. Serve immediately.
