My variation of a recipe I found in a February 2003 issue of the Columbus Dispatch, submitted by Mary Johnson. She's "been making it for 20 years and has never had a bad review." She serves it with mashed potatoes and warm rolls. The sauerkraut was sweet and mild. Next time I may try substituting applesauce for the brown sugar.


  1. Add the ingredients (in order) to a crockpot.
  2. Cook on low for 7 hours.
  3. Shred the pork and mix with the kraut.
  4. Cook on low for 1 additional hour.

I made this last week and it was fantastic. I love using my crockpot because it provides me time to spend with my family rather than being in the kitchen. I get it ready in the morning and by supper time I have a wonderful meal. I also added kielbasa to the mix so that I had plenty of leftovers. Thanks for posting.

We usually like kraut, but we did not care for this. I did salvage the pork and mixed it with some bar b q sauce to make pulled pork. Sorry
