READY IN: 4hrs 30mins
Top Review by Zaney1

I am rating this a 5 star even though I didn't follow the recipe exactly. I didn't put the saurkraut in with the pork b/c #1 I didn't have room-the pork was too big LOL and #2 I have a BIL that refuses to eat pork cooked with saurkraut. I also didn't have caraway seeds so I used fennel seeds instead. I didn't shred the carrots....well b/c I didn't want to. LOL! The apples and the carrots in the dish cooked up great and were delish! The only thing I might do differently is to peel the apples b/c some people didn't like the looks of the cooked apple skin and wouldn't eat it. Very easy just a bit time consuming but nothing too strenous.
