    Barb Witherspoon's Note:

    Throw it in the crock pot on New Year's Eve before you go out, and dinner the next day will be ready; all you have to do is fix the mashed potatoes. Slow, low cooking makes a roast that is very tender. Delicious!! I used to manage a doctor's office, and our Blue Cross rep told me that her family made this every year for New Year's.

      Oh, yum! Made for New Year's Day dinner and it was awesome! Even with the partying from the previous night, if you can make it to the crock pot and dump the ingredients in, a fabulous meal awaits you! The hardest part of the process was staying out of the pot. (Had to keep "checking on the meat"). By the time it was ready to be devoured, I was half-full. The flavors were perfect, and I recommend adding a teaspoon of caraway seed if you like them. I cooked it for 3 hours on high, then the remaining 5 on low and it was tender and delicious. It tasted just like my grandma's. We devoured it with mashed potatoes which I agree is the best choice, but it would probably be good served with sauteed dumplings or gnocchi, or potato, cheese, or onion pierogies as well. Thanks, Barb, for sharing your recipe. This will be a regular here!

      Barb, this was delicious. My husband introduced me to pork roast and sauerkraut as his family's tradition for New Year's Day a number of years ago, and each year I look for a new way to prepare it. This year, I took your recipe as a starting off place. Whereas I wanted the onion soup flavor, I had the time and inclination to make the dish from scratch rather than using a mix. I caramelized some onions and garlic in butter and olive oil and added that plus 2 c of beef broth and 1/4 white wine as the roasting liquid. I omitted the sugar and added some sprigs of thyme for a savory version. It turned out so well-- beautiful honey color and fabulous texture. This was so very good over mashed potatoes, and the meat was absolutely fall-apart tender. Terrific dish-- thanks! --Heather (P.S. Although he surely enjoyed this, my husband did miss the "sauer" part of the kraut, which gets a bit lost using this method).

      Wow!! This pork roast was so tender and easy to make. I put all this together in the morning, around lunch time I added chopped onions and apples (about 1/2 cup each), and by dinner time the smell was amazing and the pork just fell apart. Husband really enjoyed this as it was his first time having sauerkraut. Thanks a bunch!!
