It is not quite accurate to refer to this dish as sauerkraut, which is simply cabbage that has been pre-served in vinegar. You may use the flavorings in this recipe combined with sauerkraut (which you should rinse to make less acidic) to approximate capuzi garbi, but this is an easy recipe to make from scratch. It is a perfect match with all pork dishes, but I also like it with a plate of potatoes (perhaps potato goulash) or next to meat goulash on a cold winter’s day.
