Sauerkraut and Short Rib Soup
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable or extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 pounds beef short ribs
  • 1 cup diced canned tomatoes
  • 1 cup Scharffenberger sauerkraut, drained and rinsed
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
Optional Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons hot sauce (optional)
  1. In a large pot, heat the oil. Add the short ribs and brown on all sides (in batches, if necessary; don't crowd the pan). Add the remaining ingredients and enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until the short ribs are tender and the meat begins to fall off the bone, about 2 hours.
  2. Remove the short ribs, pull the meat off the bones and chop into bite-size pieces. Return the meat to the soup, season to taste with salt, pepper and water, if necessary, and serve.
