Baked Spare Ribs and Sauerkraut

3 lbs. pork spare ribs cut into pieces
1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt or regular salt
1 tsp. paprika
Pepper to taste
1 onion, chopped
1/4 c. water
1 peeled potato, shredded
1 large apple, cut up or diced
1 qt. sauerkraut or 1 poly bag from
meat section of store

Place ribs in a heavy baking pan; sprinkle with salt, pepper and paprika. Bake 325º for 1 hour. Turn the pieces after 30 minutes and brown other side. Drain off all the fat; add onions and water. Add shredded potatoes and sauerkraut; spread over ribs. Add 1 c. water. Bake at 325º an additional 1 1/2 hours. Stir occasionally to keep ribs from drying or sticking to pan.

Suggestion: Serve with mashed potatoes and applesauce.
