Same thing here. My grandmother passed away when I was very young but I remember all her dishes.Unfortunately no. However, I'm pretty sure the "what else" simply comes down to spices and technique. I can get close. But the thought that I'm trying to keep some of her recipes going would have her beaming I'm sure.
Her version was almost like a kielbasa salad. Not even a soup. You'd fork a sausage and get a heap of sauerkraut. I also remember getting a heap of a serving of caraway seeds in every bite. Additional a caraway seeded bread.
The recipe was close to this:
I've had other versions where it's more like a soup. It's more of a regional thing. Where there's more water, carrots, bacon and sometimes cream of mushroom soup. Skimming the fat off the top after simmering for a couple of hours.
In other recipes I made a Vietnamese boiled chicken dish. The boiled chicken was good but the soup made from the simmering chicken was awesome. Plus using the stock to make rice was amazing. I'm waiting to remake it but the stock was simple. Whole chicken, garlic and ginger.
I'll post when I do it again
