    Recipe Introduction

    Braised Pork Roast with Sauerkraut and Spoon Dumplings (Trevi Restaurant)

    List of Ingredients


    2-3 pound center cut pork rib roast (ribs in)
    1/2 cup olive oil
    1 cup water
    6 cups sauerkraut (preferably fresh)
    4 bay leaves
    1 tablespoon caraway seeds
    salt and black pepper to taste

    Spoon Dumplings:

    1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
    2 whole eggs
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    Dash of nutmeg
    Salt and pepper to taste
    Splash of water if necessary


    Preheat oven to 350F.

    Heat olive oil in stock pot or braising pan over medium heat. Season pork liberally with salt and pepper. Once oil is heated just below smoking point, carefully add the seasoned pork roast. Brown well on all sides. Slowly add water, sauerkraut, bay leaves and caraway seeds.

    Cover with a top. Let this simmer on low heat for 10 minutes while you prepare the next step.

    Spoon Dumplings:

    Mix together flour, eggs, baking powder, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Combine well. The mixture should maintain the consistency of a thick pancake batter. Gently spoon the dumplings on top of the simmering sauerkraut around the pork roast.

    Place lid back on pot and place pot in preheated 350F oven for approximately 1 hour or until the pork roast has an internal temperature of 160 degrees. Add more water if necessary.

    This dish was always accompanied by a healthy spoonful of mashed potatoes.
