Crock Pot Kraut & Bean Soup

This is post 2 for today, head back a post for Destiny’s post: “The Heart of Worship”.

 I adapted this recipe from my good friend, Mrs. Baker’s blog.  The second I saw it, I knew I HAD to make it.  I am intrigued by sauerkraut and I have to tell you something….this is BY FAR, the number 1 best soup I have EVER MADE.

PROMISE me you will try this!  I am not even kidding you, we GOBBLED it up!  {As in 2 bowls each, including the kids!}

  The Kraut cooks away to a sweet, mild flavor, which melds in your mouth with the smoky sausage, hearty beans and hint of dill.

Oh. My. Stinkin. Word.

  I want to go make this again right now!!!!!!!!!!!!

Crock Pot Kraut & Bean Soup


  • 4 cups Diced Unpeeled Potatoes
  • 2 cans (14 Oz Each) Sauerkraut, Un-drained
  • 1 cup Water (I added more because mine was too thick)
  • 2 packages Kielbasa Sausage, Halved And Sliced
  • 2 cans (15 Oz Each) Northern Beans, Pour Off Top Liquid Only
  • 2 cans (15 Oz Each) Pork And Beans, Un-drained
  • 4 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Dill Weed (I Did A Bit More, Yum!)

 Boil potatoe cubes until slightly soft.  Then, in an 8 Qt. crock pot layer potatoes, sauerkraut, water, kielbasa, then beans. Sprinkle brown sugar and dill weed over all.
Cover, cook on high for 3-4 hours, or until potatoes are soft and forl tender. Make sure you stir a few times during cooking, adding another 1/2 c water as needed, if it appears too thick.

Oh my word, this is seriously my new FAVORITE soup! It was so sweet & savory, big enough to feed a crowd and is OH SO GOOD!

{This makes a HUUUUUGE batch, so it can be easily halved and put into a 4 Qt crock pot as well.}

Repeat after me, ok?

Fill in the blank with your name…….

I, ________________, do hereby PROMISE to give this soup a try, even though I think sauerkraut is stinky and gross because I love Tonya and I trust her Foodie Opinion.

  See, that wasn’t so hard!  Now go…….make this soup, then report back to me how much you loved it!
