I used a pork loin with a bag of kraut some onion sliced apple and a little brown sugar--and some caraway. Next time a little more apple and brown sugar! Great with mashed poatoes and white gravy! YUM!! Read More

I LOVE pork and sauerkraut AND I love my crockpot but I won't do this again. The flavor wasn't too bad but the pork dried out horribly. Now keep in mind that I didn't turn the pork over because it was stuffed and mounded up so nicely... So I'm not opposed to taking the blame here. Just wanted to share my experience/mistakes!

I tried this with a pork roast I bought on sale and wow!! In my opinion this is the BEST and EASIEST way to prepare a pork roast. It was absolutely delicious. I served it with mashed potatoes and green beans. The meat was tender the juices were so tasty. The sauerkraut didn't overwhelm the dish in fact most of my family were suprised there was kraut in it at all. They could see it but it just didn't have that "in your face and up your nose" kick that they expected. I had to guard the leftovers!;) This will be on my standard list of recipes. Thank you for sharing it! Read More

Easy and very good. It tasted delicious served with potato pancakes topped with sour cream and apples cooked in brown sugar and butter. I shredded the leftover pork the next day, heated it up with some barbeque sauce, and served it open-faced on top thickly sliced and toasted French bread. Yummy! Read More

This is the exact recipe I use except we slice the roast (or a loin) and lay it flat in a casserole dish pour kraut over it and cook for a LONG time. When it is done we put rolls on top and bake until they are done. (They do get soft on bottom YUM.) My family LOVES this Read More

This is a perfect lazy freezing-cold Saturday night dinner. I used 16 ozs of bagged sauerkraut and added 1/3 cup raisins and 1/3 cup sliced apples to it and stuffed it all into the middle of the roast. The meat was moist flavorful and my toddler daughter scraped her plate. Will definitely add to my favs. Read More

Excellent and easy. I added a few onions and left it in the crock pot longer than directed. It was so tender. Everyone raved. I'll definitely make this again. Read More
