The meat filling is sweet and tangy. Don’t be scared off by the sauerkraut. It adds flavor and moistness to the meat but you could also leave it out if you prefer.

This is a super easy and quick dinner or lunch for two, ready in just 20 minutes. My husband and I both love it. I used ground chicken this time but you can also use ground turkey or beef.
