Preparation of sauerkraut cabbage:

Cover the pan with a lid and leave to cook for at least an hour and a half. When the meat is cooked, take it out to a plate - let it cool. Take out the onion together with the meat. Her - throw, she did her job.

Step 2. We take sauerkraut.

While cooking the broth, squeeze sauerkraut from the brine, put in a pan and simmer in sunflower oil. Then put it in the cooked broth and cook for 20 minutes. Remember that cabbage gives a salty taste to the broth, so we will finally salt at the end of cooking.

Heat the oil in a frying pan, you can put and heat dry meat spices, bay leaf, pepper in the oil so that everything warms up and fills the oil with the aroma of spices. Fade a little and put onions in a pan. Fry the onion until soft or until golden brown. At the end, add grated carrots, mix and fry vegetables for another 5 minutes. Then add the tomato paste diluted with water (2 tablespoons per half a glass of water) to the roasting. Let it boil, stirring, and the gas station is ready.
