2 pounds sauerkraut, drained
1-2 pounds pork ribs
1 quart tomatoes, cut up with juice (a large 28-ounce can is fine)
1 medium onion, sliced
1-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tablespoon sugar (optional)
water, to your preferred thick/thin consistency (about 8 cups)
salt and black pepper to taste
paprika to taste
Combine all ingredients in a large pot, bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer 2-3 hours, until the meat readily falls off the bones.
Pick out the bones, correct seasoning, and serve. This is excellent with homemade bread. It is also really good with boiled potatoes on the side.
Hope this helps.
