A family slow cooker favorite that's easy to put together. The beer enhances the flavor of the sauerkraut and pork. There is no need to brown the pork roast before placing it in the slow cooker. I serve this with scalloped or mashed potatoes.

If you like sauerkraut this is a great dish. The pork was very tender and the juice on the bottom of the crockpot was tasty. I added some chopped apples as suggested by another reviewer. This is a keeper! Read More
