Pork, Sauerkraut and Dumplings
Pork roast and kraut slow-cooked and served with dumplings and sauerkraut 'gravy.' This recipe was from my mother's very German family. She always served it with mashed potatoes, creamed peas, and applesauce. Sometimes she baked the roast and kraut separately. We always have this on New Year's Day. I usually double the recipe for the dumplings. My mother didn't make hers with beer, but I have added this over the years to taste.
You can also add some of the liquid from the sauerkraut in the slow cooker to the broth before you make the dumplings if you wish...or you can add some extra sauerkraut juice.
