Easy Pork and Sauerkraut


This pork and sauerkraut recipe is similar to my Pennsylvania Dutch grandmother's recipe. She used a pressure cooker, while I prefer a crockpot. I always serve this with a side of mashed potatoes and applesauce.

Prep Time:
15 mins
Cook Time:
6 hrs
Total Time:
6 hrs 15 mins


  • 1 (32 ounce) jar sauerkraut with juice

  • 1 pound pork roast, cut into 1 inch cubes

  • ½ (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle beer

  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic

  • 1 teaspoon onion salt

  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard

  • 1 ½ teaspoons fresh dill weed

  • ½ medium apple, peeled and cored


  1. Stir undrained sauerkraut, pork cubes, beer, garlic, onion salt, dry mustard, and dill together in a slow cooker until well combined. Press apple half under other ingredients to submerge.

  2. Cook on High for 1 hour. Reduce the heat to Low and continue cooking until pork is cooked through, about 5 more hours. Discard apple and serve.
