Comfort Food

Comfort Food

When the weather is grey, damp, and cold, both my body and soul crave warm tasty comfort food. Easy go-tos are crockpot dishes or casseroles. Today I’ve put the crockpot to service.

Simple Ingredients

The meal comes from my German roots: sauerkraut enlivened with diced tomatoes, brown sugar, a bottle of stout, and caraway seed.

Macintosh Apple

Add a chopped tart apple; I’ve chosen a Macintosh apple.

Sauté

Sauté onion and garlic, two chopped boneless pork chops, and coins of beef Polska kielbasa in olive oil. Add to the pot and stir. Cook on warm for at least four hours.

Special Mashed Potatoes

Enjoy served over mashed potatoes or with crusty bread.

What is your favorite comfort food?
