Dinner Tonight: Ribs and Kraut

A southern comfort food staple - Pork Country Style Ribs with KrautThe wife is out of town this week and I was looking for some good old fashioned comfort food for dinner tonight.  I decided to go to an old standby, Ribs and Kraut.  This is super simple in the Crock-Pot, and is a great tasting dish.  Traditionally it is served with mshed potatoes on the side, but I tend to stay away from heavy carbs during the week.  This is a winner with the kids, and one of my favorites.
