Sauerkraut and Kielbasa

My husband and I love sauerkraut. Add any kind of meat and BBQ sauce and I am in heaven. Since we were going to be home for New Year’s eve (and since it was cold and snowy out), I decided I’d get some Smoked Kielbasa from Frank’s Meat Market in downtown Grand Rapids, MI, our home since 2014. As I was looking up recipes, I stumbled on a German tradition of serving pork, kraut and mashed potatoes on New Year’s day. While I had intended to make the Kielbasa for New Year’s Eve dinner, I changed my plans,¬†modified some recipes and created this yummy meal in my crockpot.

Instructions
  1. In a 4-6 qt cold crockpot, wipe the dish with butter (it will be thick, but that's fine). Add onions, potatoes, garlic chili flakes, paprika, salt and pepper. Next layer the Kielbasa, then the sauerkraut. Finally, pour the chicken stock over it all. Crockpot settings vary with brands, I cooked this on "high" for 4 hours mainly to cook the potatoes.
Recipe Notes

*If you use new potatoes, Yukon Gold or red potatoes, I wouldn't peel them.
