This recipe from All Recipes caught my attention the other day but I made a few changes, and it was delicious. If you like sauerkraut, you may want to try this recipe. I used homemade sauerkraut but, of course, you can use canned. I used half of a pork loin instead of a pork roast. When pork loins are on sale, I buy them, cut them in half, vacuum seal them and freeze them. Half a pork loin gives us at least two meals.
Here’s the recipe in photos. Below will be a printable recipe.
First, I fried 6 strips of bacon, then seasoned the pork and browned it lightly in the bacon grease. Just before the meat was browned, I added cubed potatoes.
Once the pork was brown enough, I removed it to the slow cooker and continued browning the potatoes.
Just before the potatoes were browned, I added sliced onions and chopped garlic.
Once the onions were lightly browned, the potatoes, onions and garlic were poured on top of the pork in the crockpot.
The bacon was crumbled on top of the potato mixture.
Next came the layer of sauerkraut, which was sprinkled with caraway seeds.
Ooo, I LOVE pork and sauerkraut. I’ve always made it in pressure cooker with sauerkraut on bottom then pork on top with the caraway seeds. Then we always have mashed potatoes with butter ‘on the side’. YUM!!!

I have a friend of German heritage who always likes pork and sauerkraut on New Year’s Day. This looks like a good version.

You just transported me back to my childhood! My Mom made a similar version of this all the time and I haven’t had it in far too long. That’s going to change on Saturday. Thank you for sharing another delicious recipe.

Wonder if I can get Das to try this. We always have mashed potatoes as he puts the sauerkraut on top. Galen always puts the potatoes on the kraut. They have this on going discussion as to the proper way.if I make it this way I won’t have to listen to it!!!!!

We love this meal also…..I do it in the pressure cooker and the flavor of the kraut gets pulled thru the meat…..awesome
