I made this for my boyfriend, who is half-German, and crazy about pork & sauerkraut. He raved about it! I made the following modifications - I used a crock pot (7 hours on low) and added 1/2 cup water & 1/2 cup apple juice. I also added a little more chopped apple and onion to the crock pot. It turned out incredibly tender and tasty. This is a really easy, quick recipe that I will be happy to prepare again & again.Read More
Made this for company and it did not turn out well at all. First of all I checked the temp of the meat at 2 hours (the low end of cooking time) and it was well over 160. Consequently it was all dried out. The temp needs to be checked early and often. Also, if you like the taste of sauerkraut leave out the apples, onions and sugar. I think these modifications gave it an odd flavor, mellowed the tang too much, in my opinion.Read More

Wow! This was wonderful! It was so easy to throw together, and after being in the oven for 2 1/2 hours, the pork was SO tender! My husband and I love sauerkraut, so this was a big hit to find! My 5 year old son even thought this was outstanding, and he cleaned his plate. We will definitely be using this recipe again. Thanks, Bonnie!
I made this in the crock pot as a previous reviewer suggested. It was wonderful. I never knew I liked sauerkraut so much! Serve with mashed potatoes and applesauce. Oh my gosh! Truly comfort food!
WONDERFUL! You can follow the recipe exactly and have a fantastic meal with little prep. I added some extra sage and garlic salt and we LOVED it! Served it with carrots: 1 bag mini carrots, 1/2 apple chopped, 1/4 cup butter, sprinkle with brown sugar, cover and bake 2 hours with the pork - perfect!
Couldn't have been easier! I assembled it in a 9 x 13" baking dish and covered it with aluminum foil. It was done in a litle under two hours. I also sliced the apple and onion in quarters, to spread the flavor out a litle more. Typically, I'm not a fan of sauerkraut, but I couldn't get enough of this stuff! A+!
We loved this easy Main Dish. I had never fixed pork and sauerkraut, but my husband requested it for New Years. So after looking at several recipes this is the one we chose. Even my picky eater tasted and liked the sauerkraut! It was moist, easy, and tasted fabulous. A good pick.

Excellent recipe! I used slightly less sugar and used the whole apple (it was pretty small). I assembled this in my crockpot and cooked on low for 5.5 hrs and YUM! I'll definitely be making this again. Thanks for sharing! Warning to SAUERkraut lovers: this is what I call a "sweet-kraut" recipe, which is obvious from the ingredient list. Know this in advance so the finished product doesn't make you go "eww."
This was SOOOOOOO GOOD!!!!!! Easy, and the results are tremendously delicious!! I passed it along to five of my closest friends and family members, and they in turn tell me that they've passed it along to others' as well....it's like a pork/kraut chain letter! Thank you for this wonderful recipe!!
I love this recipe. I took it to a Church supper and then had to send the recipe to everyone. My daughter makes this in her crockpot. Goes great with sour cream potatoes and a spinach salad.
This was really good! I followed another reviewers advice and also added chopped apple and onion to the sauerkraut, 1/2 c water and 1/2 c apple juice and cooked it in the crockpot on low all day...pork was fall apart tender...my husband was afraid the sauerkraut would be overpowering, but it wasn't, it was delicious... but next time I would probably use half the amount of sauerkraut, there was enough sauerkraut left over to feed an army! Thanks for the great recipe, will definitely make again and again.
Oh my goodness! This dish was amazing! My kids devoured it as well as my husband and myself and our neighbor. It is our new favorite dish. The flavor is excellent. Can't wait to make this again!
Apparently many people posting recipes (this is not the only recipe) don't know the diff between pork loin and pork tenderloin. No way tenderloin needs to be cooked 2-3 hours, an internal temp of 150 should be reached in 30-45 minutes.
Fast, easy, and tastes great. I added more apples and onions, but that's just me! Leftovers are great on ciabatta bread with whole grain mustard.
This is absolutely fabulous!! Just like the description says, the tenderloin melts in your mouth. The only change I made was that I sliced the onion and apple and alternately laid them on top of the first layer of saurekraut. This is going to be one of the regular dishes at our home. Yummy!!
Sorry didnt care for it.I really thought i wood like this couse i love sauerkraut and grow my own herbs,And every thing in it but it just didnt do it. catherine.e
I loved the flavor and I especially liked the way the sauerkraut came out. I removed it from the oven as soon as the temperature hit 160 (about 2 hours). However, it was just a little too dry for me. Keeping pork moist is often an issue. In general, I think using a crock pot is the best option with most pork dishes.
I am no super chef in the kitchen but I made this pork tenderloin dish for a Superbowl dinner and it was fantastic!!! I really looked like I knew what I was doing !!! My friends didn't beleive I made it and my wife was really suprised at how really good it was!! Highly recommend this dish!!!!! I will be making it again and soon!!! Thanks!!!!!
This recipe, as written, is not that good. The pork came out very dry. The sauerkraut was wonderful with the brown sugar, apples and onions but the pork was not that good. I would not make again.
Was looking for something for my pork roast using sauerkraut. The apple added a good taste as did the onion. Only thing I didn't add was the brown sugar. We love sauerkraut, so didn't want a sugary taste to it. Had it in the oven for about 2 hours. This was very good, AND there are leftovers!
This was great. I put it in the crock pot before work and my husband was very impressed:) We all loved it, even the kids!! Thanks
This is fab-u-lous! Made this for my traditional New Years Day meal. It's very easy and delicious. I rubbed the pork with a little olive oil, poultry seasoning, garlic powder, salt and pepper. I used 2 27 oz. cans of sauerkraut. I also used the whole onion and apple - sliced both crosswise - to spread out the flavor. I wasn't sure about the brown sugar but used it anyway and it was great!! The pork just falls apart, so tender. Definitely a keeper.
Made this for my elderly parents and they loved it. It was easy and nutritious. They ate it the next day too and even had a sandwich from it.
I am so not a fruit mixed with meat type of person but this recipe changed my mind! Perfect balance in flavor and texture. This is a keeper even for my picky one!
I think this is a great recipe, and so easy to prepare on a weeknight. My fiance didn't care for it, but that's probably because he's not a big fan of sauerkraut. The meat comes out extremely moist and tender. The only drawback is that it makes the house smell kind of like cabbage...
I hate sauerkraut, but my husband loves it, so I made this for him. Neither of us liked this dish at all. Way too sweet (and I halved the brown sugar too).
I actually made these into porkchops and they had great flavor and were really tender. However, for me, they just lacked that extra "oomph" to be a 5-star recipe.
Very sweet! No zip to the sauerkraut. I don't think I will make it again.
Excellent Meal. Use three apples for a full seving of fruit. Cooking time is closer to 90 minutes. 140 degrees is pently cooked.
I make this every year on New Year's Day in the crockpot. Great flavor and so easy!
The very best Pork and sauerkraut I've ever made or tasted. YUM!! My Husband that isn't too enthusiastic about Sauerkraut had seconds. Thanks for a great recipe!
We loved this recipe. It was very easy and was a big hit at our New year's party at our house. I used the slow cooker and added a little water and apple juice. My husband wants me to make it again soon! Thanks!
This was a surprisingly good meal and so simple. I had the heat set a bit higher (10 degrees) due to time constraints, and I saved about 20 minutes It was very moist and flavorful.
I have never eaten Saurkraut, I am English. I made this for German friends I loved it they raved about it. I did strain the sauerkraut I had purchased in a glass jar. That was the only change I made. Thanks Wunnie, we had a great German meal.
We loved this recipe. It was just a nice change from the usual way I prepare tenderloin. It cooked up quickly and was even better the next day.
This is one of my favorite fall recipes. The only modification I make is to add a bag of baby carrots. I just dump everything in the crockpot and cook on low for 8+ hours while at work. It couldn't be simpler or tastier!
Made this in a slow cooker following the recipe and turned out great! I'm not a huge saurkraut fan, but this simmered enough to make it mellow and yummy.
Very easy but the sauerkraut that fell off the sides of the tenderloin burnt to the pan and made it difficult to clean. I'll definitely make this again but will line the pan with foil first.
This was pretty good but the pork didn't "melt in your mouth" as advertised. It was tender but not as moist as it should have been. I cooked at the recommended temperature for the recommended time and followed the recipe exactly except for using a lot more sage and garlic salt; the recommended amount wouldn't have been nearly enough. I will make it again but next time I'll try it in my crock pot.
This is the best I have ever had. I used this recipe years ago and have never tried anything different. It is so good and love making it with homemade mashed potatoes.
This recipe was easy to prepare & very tasty.The meat was very tender & the sauerkraut had a sweetness to it. I'll diffently be making this again. It would be perfect prepared in a crock pot.
Excellent, will make every year for traditional New Years Dinner! It was a hit
This was very good. Will definitely make again.
We made this in the crockpot. The pork was delicious, and it had a very nice flavor. Thanks for the recipe!
Not bad. I used tenderloin chops and cookde for less time. I should've used a tart apple but I had a fuji in the fridge. That tasted odd. I didn't care for it as a whole, but my husband liked it.
This was pretty good. I have another recipe I like better, but this was a nice change. Thanks!
I made this exactly as stated except added some seasoned salt and cracked pepper. I put it in my cast iron skillet and baked for 2 hours. It was so juicy and the flavor was amazing. I don't cook pork often but I would make this again.
3 hours is entirely too long at 325. Was completely dried out. 2 hours max
This was wonderful even though we don't eat sauerkraut very often due to the salt content. I sprinkled some caraway seed and rosemary on it before cooking, however, I forgot the brown sugar. It was still very good. I will make it again using less sauerkraut. Thank you for submitting. this recipe.
I tried this recipe on a whim and my family loved it. I did leave out the brown sugar because I was worried it would be too sweet and for my family it was perfect. It took the edge off the sauerkraut in an awesome way. I only ended up cooking my loin roast 1 hr and 45 min as it was actually over 160 degrees at that time. Thanks!
I love this recipe - it is easy and has a great flavor! I cut the onion and apple in half but use all of it. Husband isn't a huge fan of sauerkraut but he really likes this recipe.
Reminds me of the Pennsylvania Dutch winter meals. Super! Easy to prepare. My modification was to bake at 350 for 75 minutes.
Quite tasty and very easy to put together. Went very nicely with mashed potatoes. The juice over the potatoes was heavenly. Will add carrots as the other reader suggested. Nice meal on a cold winter evening.
Easy and delicious!
No horseradish and add brown sugar to sweeten up the sauce. Delish!
Really good recipe! The only thing I did differently was reduce the cook time to 40 minutes...It came out perfect, slightly pink and tasty!
I chopped the apple and sliced the onion, and layered in the middle of the sauerkraut. Poked slivers of garlic into the pork. Added a sprinkling of caraway seeds on top. Very good, but it still needs something more...I'm thinking maybe drain & dry the sauerkraut VERY well, and then mix in a little beer. Will try that next time...
Truely comfort food, my husband hates sauerkraut but still liked this dish.
This was so easy and tasted great also, and I don't even usually like sauerkraut.
The pork was very tender, the taste was just OK
Love it! The meat was moist and it went great with red potatoes!
We made this as our 2008 thanksgiving dinner. i made some adjustments i marinated the pork roast in apple juice over night then went from fridge to oven. it was very very tender and juicy my husband and family loved it!
I followed this recipe to a "t," and it was amazing! I usually only eat pork and sauerkraut on New Years, but my boyfriend keeps requesting that I make this again!
Use sauerkraut in cans with seeds. This was okay for a change
My Fiance and I made this for dinner tonight and i gotta tell you it was the most scrumptious thing. The pork was really tender and the rest was delicious. I would definetly recommend people to make this it was really good.
I hate to contradict so many good reveiws, but I really didn't like this recipe. As I ate it I started off thinking it was nothing special and finished with a dislike for it. One thing to note - I couldn't find a 2-lb tenderloin, so I used two 1-lb tenderloins. I checked on them after an hour and they were already way past 145 degrees. I think this recipe would be much better with Kielbasa instead of pork tenderloins.
The tenderloin indeed came out tender and moist; however, the sauercraut left me cold! I think that if I try this one again, I'll make some changes in the ingredient list!
I've used this recipe numerous times. It's easy and makes a great presentation. I done it both with and without the brown sugar on top.
Added; 1 T minced garlic, 2 t caraway seed, 1 t sage, 1 apple and 1 onion for a 3.88 lb. tenderloin.
I did use a 3 pound tenderloin so I added additional onions, apples, and seasoning. Everyone at my party said it was the best pork tenderloin there ever had!!! I will definitely be making this again.
2 hours is too long. It came out a bit dry. I pulled it out at 1 hour & 10 minutes and the internal temp was 160. Also, might taste better marinading first with these ingredients before cooking. My husband liked it.
This was amazing, very tender and juicy everyone loved it, my grandsons have never eaten sauerkraut before, needless to say they love sauerkraut this way and told me to fix this one again and often, so it's definitely a keeper and we will have this wonderful recipe again.
I make it with more apple and no sauerkraut, substituting other vegetables such as celery or carrots, which I place to the sides of the meat, with the apple slices on top of the meat. Instead of garlic powder, I stick finely minced fresh garlic into the meat. Sage, cayenne, fresh cilantro, and a couple teaspoons of olive oil and honey (instead of the brown sugar) also go on top of the pork before the apple slices are applied to cover it, with aluminum foil loosely covering the whole baking dish. Two hours of cooking time is usually plenty.
This came out perfect!! My husband loves pork with sauerkraut, so I thought this would be a nice addition, ie. the apple and onion. It definetly was!!! I follows the recipe almost exactly, just didn't have amy sage...no problem!!! And I loved how easy it was to prepare! Thanks for a great recipe I will use again and again!
This was fabulous! I like no hassle meals and this was really very easy prep. It really does melt in your mouth!
Recipe overall is good....but the suggested cooking time of 2-3 hours is a disaster. I cooked 2 tenderloins with sauerkraut, apples and onions on them for 2 hours @ 325 and checked the temp which was above 180. Needless to say they were quite overdone...so this recipe needs to be corrected to start checking temp of meat after 1 hour!
Absolutely delicious! I used Boars Head bagged sauerkraut,and drained minimally. And I did follow the tip about keeping it under foil - I took the foil off after 2 hours and turned the oven off but left it in, just to get a bit of temp on it. Rave, rave reviews all around. Even my non-sauerkraut eater ate the pork! Served with mashed potatoes (a must with sauerkraut in my house) and the baby carrots & diced apples another reviewer mentioned, tho with those I used a lite margarine and splenda. They were awesome with it as well.... Def going in the recipe box for repeats :)
I added some water, no sage, no apple. The pro was tender and delicious! Definitely will make it again!
This was by far the best pork I have ever made. Just fell apart! Thank you Bonnie! :)
Easy and yummy too! I only had a pork roast, so I used this instead of a tenderloin. But I would like to try this recipe with the tenderloin.
Easy to prepare, throw in the oven and forget... until the smell fills the kitchen. Amazing how many people are willing to "help" you remove it from the oven. >;-) Absolutely wonderful!
It was sensational. Great flavor very moist.
This was an awesome recipe. I kept all of the ingredients the same but added a couple of things. First, I had two tenderloins approximately 1.25 pounds each. I rubbed with sage, garlic, salt and pepper and browned them in an oven safe deep skillet. I added some beef broth to the bottom of the pan and topped them with the sauerkraut, apple, onion, and brown sugar (I sliced the apple and onion and spread the pieces over the first layer). I covered and cooked for 30 minutes at 350. Then I added halved small potatoes and mini carrots. I basted them with the broth, covered and cooked at 325 for another hour. It turned out great and it was a one pot meal. Thanks very much for the recipe. It was actually my first time cooking pork tenderloin and I am so glad I did.
I didn't have 3 hrs, so I modified this somewhat. After rubbing the tenderloin with sage & garlic, I seared all sides of the pork in the roasting pan with a tiny bit of oil. I poured off the oil and deglazed the pan with about 1/3 of cranberry juice as that was the only juice I had on hand. Any wine, juice, or vermouth would have worked find. I added the sauerkraut along with 1 granny smith green apple and half an onion that had been shredded, covered it up and cooked it at 400 for 45 minutes. The whole thing was done in an hour and DELICIOUS. I didn't add any sugar at all other than what was in the juice. I'm picky about my sauerkraut, as is my German husband, and we both loved this. Served it with spaetzle on the side. Even the kids gobbled it up.
This was awesome! Followed the recipe just as written except I only had a 1 lb tenderloin. Cooked in about an hour and it was delicious!
I didn't like sauerkraut - until now! I made it 5 days ago and my family is requesting it again. I doubled the onion, apple and garlic. Absolutely delicious!
Very, very good. My husband and I both loved this. Thanks so much!
This was a hit with my family. Cooked it in the crockpot & it came out fall apart tender. I used two 14 oz cans sauerkraut w/ liquid and added an additional 1/2 cup water. A quartered green apple and quartered onion. Threw it all in the pot and let it go on low for 6 hours. Even my picky 12 yr old enjoyed it. Will definitely make again.
Have to watch the temp. Pork cooks quickly . I used a 6-6.5 lb roast . It was done in about 2.2 hours . Also browned meat in broiler before cooking . Used minced garlic instead of garlic salt . Awesome taste .
This is one of THE most delicious, flavorful roasts I have ever made, and it's so quick and easy!!! This will be in my favorites for sure and I will make it as often as I can!
I'm getting ready to make this recipe and I already know it will be wonderful. One thing . . . the picture above looks like a "Pork loin", not a "pork tenderloin". There is a difference. A pork tenderloin is a very thin cylinder (kind of eel shaped) and a pork loin is much thicker. A pork tenderloin is usually around 1 lb. of meat. I'll be using two. A pork loin can be 4 lbs. (maybe more) and some people buy them whole and section them into the sizes they want. Just a little FYI.
I made this recently for my Polish family and they absolutely raved about it. My husband and son loved it! It made it again using pork chops and it came out great!
Simple and delicious!!
Will make again, cut roasting time in half. Added red skin potatoes. Yum!
OK. a bit bland, need bbq sauce.
This was superb; moist and tender. I will make it again.
I opted not to make this as the cooking time was vague: 2 to 3 hours. I really need a more definitive time so that I have other dishes finishing at the same time. I don’t think I ever ate or served just a pork roast. I gave it 3 stars because it does sound yummy.
forgot to start it in slow cooker in the morning, but wouldn't be home in time to start it in the oven at 325, so I put it in the oven at 1pm at 275 degrees, by 5 pm it was perfect.
I got very bitter, inedible sauerkraut.
