This is for Sue IN, who requested recipes for sauerkraut,cabbage and onions in the 3/24 newsletter. You can also use beef, chicken or vegetable stock in place of the beer. I doubt this is the exact recipe you remember, but it should give you a start. You may need to adjust the spices to create the exact flavor you remember. We ate a lot of sauerkraut growing up, as my dad's parents were German.
