|42 min.||1 hour 42 min.||2 hours 24 min.|
|1||Peel and chop 1 onion.||5 min.|
|2||Peel and wash medium size 500 g potatoes.
If they are too big, cut into 2 or 4, it's important that they are of similar size for even cooking.
|3||Cut 250 g smoked pork belly (or thick cut streaky bacon) and 250 g pork shoulder into fairly large pieces.
Melt 3 tablespoons goose fat in a large pan on high heat fire, and when lightly smoking add pieces of meat.
|4||Brown all over. This is not to cook the meat, so it only takes 1 or 2 minutes each side.
When meat is browned, remove from pan and leave on a plate.
If you have a lot of meat, do this in stages.
|5||When all the meat is removed, add chopped onion, salt, pepper and mix well.||1 min.|
|6||Cook onion gently on its own for 2 minutes without letting it colour (it should not fry).||2 min.|
|7||Add 500 g raw sauerkraut, stir well.||1 min.|
|8||Pour in 1 glass dry white wine, if possible a wine from Alsace like Sylvaner or Riesling, stir again.||5 min.|
|9||Put meat on top and 1 Morteau sausage that has been pricked all over with a sharp knife. Turn heat to low, cover, and leave to cook for 30 minutes (or more).||30 min.|
|10||After this time, remove meat and sausage, add juice of ½ lemon, mix well, add potatoes, and put meat and sausage back in.
Leave to cook 30 minutes covered, then 30 more minutes uncovered. Check if potatoes are done: a knife should go through easily.
|11||Choucroute should be served at the table: the whole dish is put in the centre of the table; one of the guests cuts the sausage into thick slices, then everyone serves himself and can come back for more.||5 min.|
