Spare ribs on Sauerkraut

This is an interesting and yummy recipe i tried lately. The interesting thing is the mix of kraut and spare ribs, which is yummy itself. If you want low carb food, you can eat it without potatos, if you don't care about low carb, you can eat it with potatos, smashed potatos, potato dumplings.

1-1.5 KG of spare ribs
1 KG of sauerkraut
1 onion
bell pepper powder
300 ml of apple juice or apple wine
some water
1 TSP oil, for example peanut oil
a few juniper berries
a few pepper corns
2 bay leaves

Cut the spare ribs into pieces, like 10x10 centimeters or such.
Season them with some salt, a lot of pepper and bell pepper powder.

And i really mean "a lot", pepper and bell pepper powder, that should season the sauerkraut and the sauce too.

Peel the onion, cut it into cubes and roast the onion cubes in a pot or pan with the TSP of oil for 2 or 3 minutes.

Then add the sauerkraut, the apple juice or apple wine, depending on how sweet you would like this dish, add, if needed, some water, so that all the kraut is covered with liquid.

Add the juniper berries, pepper corns, bay leaves, mix everything well, then put the seasoned pieces of spare ribs on the top of it, put a lid on the pan or pot and let it simmer, nearly cooking, for at least one hour.

The dish is cooked well, if you could easily remove the meat from the bones of the spare ribs.

After that, serve it with potato stuff or not, depending on if you like low carb or non low carb food and enjoy :)
