Directions:
Mix all the ingredients together. Form into a ball the size of a golf ball. Place 3/4 of a quart of sauerkraut in the bottom of a 3 to 4 quart kettle. To give a little extra flavor sprinkle with dried pepper seeds. The more you use the more bite the sauerkraut will have. Place the meatballs on top of sauerkraut, then add rest of the quart of sauerkraut.
Pour in enough water to cover. Simmer on top of stove about one hour or until rice is done. Serve with mashed potatoes

Personal Notes:
Grandpa Martin always made this when a lot of the family was coming to ND to visit. Sometimes he had to triple the recipe and cook it in a big roaster in the oven.
