What else is important to note about this recipe is that I used just one slice of bacon to provide that pork flavor. Also, I rely solely on grass-fed ground beef from ButcherBox because I honestly only use their healthier meats, chicken and pork. Why would this quality of healthier meat matter? Besides being free of all the antibiotics, growth hormones and disgusting additives other meat headed to our food supply are fed, there is a lot less fat to worry about draining or adding to your cholesterol numbers. You can also feel good that you are serving your family maximum nutrition instead of compromised commercial meats to benefit health.

The effort required for this ground beef and sauerkraut casserole recipe is minimum. You will chop and, mince the onions and garlic before opening a few cans and frying the meats and them before adding the other specified ingredients. You also need to cook up the sauerkraut and fry it separately.
