County Ribs, Kraut, And Mashed Potatoes

I was at the store the other day and they had country pork ribs on sale so I was ready for some pork and kraut.  If you’re not familiar with them, country ribs are just pork shoulder cut to look like a rib and sometimes they have a small bone in them – which these did.

I used the crockpot to cook a package of ribs with some of our homemade kraut.

We sided it with mashed potatoes using the recipe Penny, from Lake Lure Cottage Kitchen, used to top her French Shepherd’s Pie.

Everything was very good and the potatoes worked well as a stand alone dish.

I'm now responding to your comments and hoping you will stop back by - photos best if enlarged by clicking on them.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.

  1. I cook these 'ribs' all the time and love 'em - esp the boneless ones when using a saucy finishing mop or gravy. Have not had a kraut dish in years, gonna have to change that.

  2. My friend Cauleen does shredded pork roast, sauerkraut and mashed potatoes every New Year's Day. And I have a crockpot recipe for these pork ribs, sauerkraut and apples .... and now seeing your post I'm suddenly very hungry for pork and mashed potatoes. Looks delicious Larry.

  5. I made an Irish dish last night - Colcannon which is mashed potatoes, onions and cabbage - so this was close! I will make it again and try to snap a photo before it gets eaten up. Loved it!
