  • 2 Tablespoons catsup
  • 1 teaspoon sage
  • 1 teaspoon thyme

  1. Brown the meat.
  2. Place the rack in the bottom of the pressure cooker. Place meat on top of rack. Add veggies. Pour sauerkraut over the top of the veggies.
  3. In a small bowl, combine water, sugar, catsup, and spices. Pour over the top of the sauerkraut.
  4. Place the lid on the pressure cooker. Cook over high heat and bring it to high pressure. Adjust heat to keep it at high pressure and cook for ten minutes.

Direction for cooking in a Dutch Oven: Brown meat. While the meat is browning, chop the vegetables. After the meat is browned, put it in the Dutch oven. Add potatoes and onion. Pour sauerkraut and water over the meat and potatoes. Mix in brown sugar, catsup, and spices. Cover with lid and cook at 350 degrees for 2 hours or until meat is cooked through and potatoes are fork tender.
