Oma's German Style Spare Ribs

Any spare rib cut will work.(Use as many as you think you would eat, maybe 2-3 pounds?)
Get 2-3 packages of sauerkraut (in the bag)
In a large pot, layer one package of sauerkraut on the bottom. Then layer the ribs on top of the sauerkraut. Then add the remaining sauerkraut on top of the ribs. Fill pot with water to about 2" to the top. Bring pot to a boil,... uncovered. When it reaches the boiling stage, cover and lower heat to low and cook for an 1&1/2 hours.
That's it!! DON'T add any salt, pepper or any seasoning. When done, drain water completely.
You will surprised the flavor the ribs will have from the sauerkraut.
At this length cooking time, the meat will be falling off the bone. If you like the ribs with a little more bite, cut cooking time to 1 hour but I  highly suggest cooking it this way the first time. How much easier could it be?
