I changed a couple things in this recipe but it was too good not to rate 5 stars. I loved it and I usually don't like fruit and meat together. I followed the directions in putting the apple and onion slices on the bottom but I don't drain the sauerkraut nor do I add sugar - we like a little bite in our kraut. I added a combination of sweet tea and chicken broth into the slow cooker. Everything comes out moist and flavorful! Read More

The pork was VERY tender and while I thought the sauerkraut was a little too dominant my boyfriend absolutely loved it. He ate about the biggest helping of this I've ever seen him eat. If I made it again I'd use more apple and less kraut. Though since the recipe is called Kraut Special I should've been expecting that. Read More

Excellent...but don't forget some salt and pepper. That tea does something wonderful to this dish. Read More

This was so easy and so tasty! I actually didn't have enough time to do it in a slow cooker so I put everything in a dutch oven and cooked at 400 for about 30 minutes (til the meat thermometer registered 145 degrees). The whole family enjoyed it! This afternoon I took some of the leftovers added chicken broth and a spoonful of brown sugar and voila! a delicious warming soup! Read More

I actually have an apple peeler that I use which makes the apples sliced instead of diced. Likewise with the onions. Strips are nicer as you bite! The recipe somehow converted to everything being diced. I dont dice anything! Read More

Excellent dish for the New Years tradition. No peach flavored tea so used some Craisins. Also added some thyme to flavor the pork. Had to go out to store to get apples so added after first 2 hours of cooking and cooked to perfection. The juices of apple and craisins really added some great taste. Read More

This was a good one. I did skip the tea and instead subbed in a tablespoon or two of peach jam. I thought the tea would have been just too much liquid but the peach apple onion add a nice complexity to the sauerkraut. This is a keeper. Read More
