Sauerkraut Hot Dog Cart Style: Drain, Rinse, or Heat With Its Liquid?

eepi | Feb 24, 2013 06:37 AM

I'm going to a baby shower where the food is simple hotdogs and chili.

I bought a package of sauerkraut to bring along, but I don't see any directions on the package. I've found lots of fancy recipes for choucroute or doctoring with such things as juniper berries, but all I want to know is whether a hot dog cart uses rinsed, drained sauerkraut or just heats in its juices.

What I want to do is to surround a bowl of homemade Sabrett-Style Onion Sauce ( http://amazingribs.com/recipes/hot_do... ) with some hot sauerkraut.

The link above just suggests warming the sauerkraut in the microwave. Says nothing about rinsing. Anyone here know what's traditional New York / Sabrett Cart Style ?
