Lay a buttered round of wax paper on top of sauerkraut. Cover and set in the middle of preheated oven. Simmer slowly for 3 1/2 hours.

Brown assorted meats in skillet. Bury them in the casserole while the sauerkraut is still braising.

Continue to simmer in oven for another 1 1/2hours. (5 hours total).
