Sauerkraut Soup! What can be more German than that?

This Sauerkraut Soup recipe, aka Sauerkrautsuppe, is a favorite. It's one of the easy Eintopf (one-pot) meals that Germany is so famous for. Everything's cooked in one pot - easy clean-up! You can alter the amounts of the veggies or meat according to your tastes. Soup is simply a mix of what you like.

When making the Sauerkraut Soup, make it just like Oma would ...

  • The quantities of veggies can easily be changed. Really doesn't need to be measured. Just be sure that the broth covers everything.
  • Use beef bouillon cubes and water to make beef broth if desired. 

Oma says,

Since I just love quick soup recipes, and quick is what this website is all about, this soup really fits well when you use purchased frozen meatballs

If you have time, you can always make meat balls from scratch. 

Sauerkraut Soup?

I love sauerkraut. I just never had it in a soup when I was growing up. Sauerkraut was something that was served as a side dish.

When I was asked a while ago for a recipe for sauerkraut soup, I thought it a bit strange. That is, until I did some research and looked through lots of German cookbooks. I found a great assortment of easy soup recipes and even a sauerkraut casserole.

I did some experimenting and this soup is the result. It always gets rave reviews when I serve it.  To round out the meal, I serve a salad such as this lettuce salad with sour cream salad dressing and some fresh buns, or homemade artisan bread.
