      Cooling it in the oven is much better than the crock pot. I think the flavor is so much better in the oven. This recipe is spot on although I put all the sauerkraut in all at once. For the record I live in Lebanon, PA

      This was good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written other then my roast was only about five pounds and I only used two pounds of sauerkraut. I kept mine cover until the last 45 minutes because hubby likes his sauerkraut browned. We all enjoyed this.

      This recipe was so easy to make. I did use a smaller piece of pork and less sauerkraut and cooked it for less time, but it came out moist, fall apart tender and delicious just like my husband remembered it from his childhood. (warning, if you don't like sauerkraut be aware the house will smell pretty pungent while it cooks! :) Thank you for a great recipe I will use again!
