This is the second sauerkraut product produced by Cleveland Kraut I have tried, and I must say, I am quickly becoming a huge fan of their products. I thought their Gnar Gnar Kraut was pretty darn good, but this Curry Kraut raises the bar in delicious flavor. The guys at Cleveland Kraut state;
“At Cleveland Kraut, we take pride in producing the best tasting and crunchiest sauerkraut in the world.”
If you are going to make a bold claim to be the best tasting and crunchiest in the world, you had best be able to back it up with a superb product. Cleveland Kraut is doing so, in the products I have tried. They have knocked it clean out of the park with this one. Home Run!
The same as they accomplished with their Gnar Gnar product, this kraut is a perfect blend of spices and peppers where you can distinctly taste each savory ingredient without it overpowering another. Some might find the curry and jalapenos to be a bit warm for their palate, although I found it to be quite mild. My disclaimer: I consume an entire bottle of habanero hot sauce about every week and a half to two weeks. You might use caution when first trying this product as I have a high tolerance for hot foods.
As a bonus, this kraut is not only delicious, it is a healthy probiotic food which is important to good digestive health. Sauerkraut contains enzymes that help he body to break down food into smaller, and more easily digestible molecules which in turn helps the body to absorb more nutrients which help to keep your body working in an optimum condition.
I paired this Curry Kraut with a 4 ounce pork chop I had pan seared in a little bit of olive oil. This pairing was quite excellent, but it would be possibly better on a good brat. This satisfying meal only yielded 220 calories with 23 grams protein, 4 grams of complex carbs, and 18 grams of fat. 13.5 grams of this fat was from heart healthy olive oil.
