This recipe was very easy and delicious. My husband, who never cooks, made this for the family, and everyone loved it. I would definitely make it again. He made it using pork chops and it was perfect! Thanks for posting!

This recipe was so delicious! My boyfriend raved over how good the pork was! I used cumin instead of caraway seeds because I didn't have any and did not use butter or salt. It was so moist and tender!!! I served it with mashed potatoes and rolls. This recipe will be our New Year's Day tradition from now on!

Growing up my mom would just throw some porkchops in a baking dish and throw Sauerkraut on top and bake till the meat fell off the bone. This recipe sounded like the "grown up" version. I cooked on low and at exactly 8 hours the meat was falling apart delicious! I also put some quartered potatos and onions on the bottom of the crockpot and then did the rest as recipe stated. I enjoyed, but next time i will leave off the brown sugar, it wasn't my thing. I bet without the brown sugar it will be perfect!

This was very good, tender and not overly sweet form the brown sugar. I took this over to mother-in-laws tonight for dinner. I did not melt the butter. I just sliced it very thin and put it over the top. I made this for ZWT III 2007 - United States Region - Family Pick

My husband, two picky eaters and myself love this dish! My picky eaters always ask for seconds and my husband gets seconds and thirds. I follow the recipe but use pork chops rather than a roast but that's my own preference. So tender and juicy!

This was great!! My husband sometimes dislikes overpowering Sauerkraut.. but the apple, brown sugar and butter paired with it perfectly and evened it out. Will make again on New Years Day!

I used 2.5lb pork tenderloin, hint less caraway, hint less brown sugar. At 6.5 hours I checked it and at 7 hours I was shoveling it in. Absolute keeper!!

We have Pork and Sauerkraut every New years, and the kids don't really eat it, But Its a New Years Tradition. It wouldn't feel like New years with out the smell of Pork roast and Sauerkraut .I buy a Pork Roast Butt, rinse it off, add 2 large cans of Sauerkraut, the Pork Roast and lots and lots of Pepper, a little garlic, and a can or 2 of water from the sauerkraut cans , enough to almost cover the roast. Let it cook all day in the crock pot, at least 8 hours on high or low, the fat juices from the pork calms down the sour kraut and it is delish! a must serve with home made mash potatoes !
