    The Wallaces's Note:

    This is a New Year's Day tradition for my hubby's family. It has German origins and is supposed to bring good luck in the New Year. Note: My MIL says that the spareribs must be country-style; baby back don't work for this one. The amount of sauerkraut used depends on how much you want to eat. We found 2 cans to be too much; next time, we'll scale it down to 1 1/2. *Note: In light of Charlotte J's review, I also want to suggest adding apples or onions if you feel that it needs more flavor. This is how hubby's family has done this one for years, and I would probably tinker with it if given the chance, but I better not mess with his tradition ;)

      Adding a chopped Vidalia onion to the kraut was a good suggestion by Charlotte J. What a great smell the home had that evening. Pork roast and Kraut was our traditional New Year's day meal growing up for good luck. Don't forget to pre-bake. It does make a difference.

      Terrific!! I used bone-in country ribs and home canned sauerkraut to make this. I loved the tip about pre-baking first and the crock pot made for tender, juicy ribs that were so good. The amount of brown sugar was perfect, not too sweet but noticable. I normally just bake mine in the oven but will change to the crock pot because it was much easier and I didn't have to stay home while dinner cooked. I thought this was great as is and wouldn't change a thing. Made for PAC 2011.

      The tip of baking the ribs first gets a 5 star rating for such a great idea!!! Before baking, I wrapped my ribs in foil for easier clean up. I thought it could use a little more flavor by adding some onions or an apple. Made for *ZWT 6* I'm on Team *Ya Ya Cookerhood*
