Ingredients

Sauerkraut as a side dish with fried dumplings

300 g Sauerkraut (pickled cabbage)
100 ml white wine
200 ml concentrated vegetable broth
2 pc bay leaves

Ingredients for glazed apples

1 pc Apple
25 g clarified butter
4 pinches brown sugar (I prefer to use raw cane sugar!)

Ingredients for dumpling gröstel

4-6 pc Bread dumplings from the day before
1 tbsp Sunflower oil
1 tsp majoram (Dried marjoram has proved its worth here...)
1 pinches Salt
1 pinches black pepper
25 g butter
1 tbsp horseradish (named "Meerrettich" in Germany, "Kren" in Austria)
2 tbsp Créme Fraîche
2 pc radishes

Decoration

1/2 Bund majoram (fresh)

Instruction

Place the sauerkraut in a large saucepan with the white wine and vegetable stock on the stove and bring to the boil. Add the bay leaf. Let the sauerkraut simmer for 20 minutes at medium heat.

Wash and halve the apple, remove the core and cut into eighths. Brown the apple slices in a large pan with clarified butter, then add the sugar and caramelise lightly. Place the apples on a plate and clean the pan.

Cut the dumplings into slices about 5 mm thick. Heat the pan and fry the dumpling slices on both sides in sunflower oil. Add the butte, froth and season with marjoram, salt and pepper.

Drain the sauerkraut onto a sieve and arrange on warm plates. Add the roasted dumplings and apple slices in a fan shape. Decorate with the fraiche cream and radish, sprinkle with fresh horseradish and serve.

Alternatively you can pass some sauerkraut juice and boil it up in a second pot. Refine with horseradish and butter as well as cream or crème fraîche and boil down. Then arrange the sauerkraut in the middle. Add the roasted dumplings and the apple pieces. Mix the sauce with a hand blender and add to the Gröstl. Good success!
