1 (8 ounces) package sauerkraut, rinsed and drained

1 yellow onion, chopped

1 tsp oregano

1 bay leaf

4 carrots, chopped

1/3 c. cold water

1/4 c. cornstarch


23 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil or butter, melted

Heat the olive oil in a large stock pot over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the onion and carrots. SautΓ© for about 7 to 9 minutes until tender.

Next, add the garlic along with the diced corned beef. Proceed to cook for additional 1 to 2 minutes or until the garlic is aromatic. To taste, season with salt, pepper, and oregano.
