I'm just trying this recipe today and am posting so I won't lose it. I cut it out of the Pitt Post Gazette. So far the few tastes I've tried the sauerkraut is very good and for me that is great because I don't care for it.

Absolutely DELICIOUS! I followed the recipe exactly, but realized last minute that I didn't have any sauerkraut in the pantry like I thought, so I finished cooking it in the Dutch oven per the recipe. Fortunately, my Mom gave me some of the kraut she had prepared, but I decided to hold off adding it in case my youngest daughter wouldn't like it. Well, I can say that without the sauerkraut it is unbelievably tender and the favor is just amazing...and it's every bit as good with the kraut too. This recipe is a keeper and I plan on coming back to it throughout the year (if my super picky daughter says its the best she's ever tasted, and she even tried it both ways, then that's something)!<br/><br/>I shredded the pork the next day, added some BBQ sauce, and placed it on toasted/grilled hoagie rolls. Wow!
