This turned out so good! I used a 2 lb. loin, which I seasoned with s&p and seared in olive oil. After removing the meat and placing it in the crock, I sauteed a sliced onion in the pan until it started to get soft, and then added the apple slices (2 granny smiths) just to toss with the juices before pouring the whole thing in the crock. I used 16 oz of sauerkraut, and next time I make it I will probably use more since we like it so much. Other ingredients were as listed. We had it with mashed potatoes as suggested, which was really delicious, but it would also be fantastic with dumplings!
