From the Test Kitchen

We’re celebrating the hearty, comforting flavors of Central Europe with a recipe inspired by “choucroute garnie,” a popular Alsatian dish of sauerkraut, potatoes, and sausage. Tonight, the star is our beef knockwurst —or smoked beef sausages flavored with garlic and traditional spices like paprika and mace—braised with potatoes, onion, and carrots, then seared on the stovetop for a perfectly browned exterior. A quick-cooking take on sauerkraut completes the meal with plenty of crunchy texture and tangy flavor.
