For the ones who see, enjoy the pics and find the time to prepare this dish and you will find yourself superbly rewarded 🙂
Schälrippchen mit sauerkraut und bratkartoffeln is a typical dish from Swabia, the area in Southern Germany where I grew up. Typically eaten on a Saturday, it was looked upon as a very simple, down to earth dish, enjoyed only with family and not fancy enough to share with guests.
Schälrippchen mit sauerkraut und bratkartoffeln is one of those dishes which turn back the time for me, stimulating me to vividly remember times more simple and happy…….

P.S.
Traditionally, the brine for the ribs contains “Pökelsalz” which contains Nitrite and turns the ribs pinkish.
At home I use regular kosher salt instead, which will result in the same taste without the pink coloring of the meat.

P.P.S.
This is food which tastes even better when re-heated 🙂
If you can manage, eat just a bit after just finished cooking, then bury the ribs in the sauerkraut, top with the potatoes and keep in the fridge overnight. The next day, gently reheat.

  1. Hi Chef Hans hope all is well at our kitchen, I see where Bella got the first bite again, luck dog!!
    My wife Elli remembers this dish so well, has not heard it mentioned by anyone one, since you,
    since she left Frankfurt, in 1956. Your are correct, this is a family dish, not because it does not look nice, but the love in putting this together makes it a great dish not to share with others, only
    family. Of course, this may be a good introduction to a dish that even an old country German,
    may remember, but guests can enjoy it too. It takes some time to put together, but, all good dishes take time, if you really want to test your cooking skills. Elli will follow your directions and
    give me the first taste, like Bella, but the bone, I’ll have to hide it from our Kat. Thank you for
    bringing this dish to us, you made Elli’s day, and mine too!

    All the best in the kitchen – John R. Vicente CHA/3D

  2. Thank you John and Elli 🙂
    One of the main reasons I still publish this post is so that folks like us who remember good, real, honest food can still see it and being reminded of it. There are enough blogs and publications out there for the “Hip and Trendy” 🙂 Nothing against hip and trendy, but when it comes to food, people and manners, the old fashion way can’t be beat 🙂
    Well, I am an old geezer now and belong to a minority in thinking this way, but then again, real food and real opinions will never grow out of style 🙂 ……….
