I like this recipe because the sauerkraut actually doesn’t have a strong sour taste to it. The bitterness so frequently associated with sauerkraut is reduced significantly by rinsing it thoroughly with water then draining well prior to cooking.

Do not skip rinsing the sauerkraut! This step is critical to the success of the recipe! Failure to thoroughly rinse the sauerkraut will result in a strong sour and acidic taste that some might find overpowering.

Drain the sauerkraut! This step is just as important as rinsing. You want the sauerkraut drained well, to the point that it is no longer dripping when you pick it up. Failure to adequately drain the sauerkraut will result in a mixture that has too much liquid and no one wants to eat a grilled veggie hot dog or sausage on wet bread.
