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.
Measurements can be approximate (within reason!). It can be a bit of this and a bit of that. So, make this Sauerkraut Soup your own favorite!
If you are making your own meatballs, mix together ground beef and egg. Season with salt and pepper. Form into 1-inch meatballs.
Dice potatoes and carrots into 1-inch pieces.
Sauté onions in oil until translucent and add sugar and continue sautéing until golden brown.
Add drained sauerkraut. Continue sautéing for a few minutes. Add paprika.
Add beef broth, meatballs, carrots and potatoes. Bring to boil. Simmer, covered, for about 15 - 30 minutes.
Season with salt and pepper if needed.

Sharing these soup recipes from my Mutti and Oma to my own young grandchildren ... that's such a delicious way to pass on our German heritage :)

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.
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.
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've teamed up with my own business coach, Renae Christine (yes, do google her!), to bring you this free masterclass. After you watch it, ask me any questions and I'll gladly answer them.
Don't hesitate. I'm not sure how long Renae will keep this free masterclass available.
PS: Yes, Renae really is as amazing as all the reviews say.
PPS: Yes, the course is for handmade items, but I've used it successfully for my cookbooks. I know others are using her methods for services, direct sales ,and even a local ice cream bar & grill that's constantly selling out. You've nothing to lose by taking a look.

This comprehensive cookbook brings back so many treasured food memories from my childhood. My German “Mutti” and her mom, my Oma, both long gone, were such great cooks, but their recipes were never written down.
Gerhild Fulson’s expansive recipe collection will help people of my generation with their “lost” recipes and it will introduce new generations to German specialties that are both delicious and a part of Germany’s rich culinary culture.
