    I have made this for years... well very similar. I don't use that much brown sugar, only a spoonful and I add a couple of small carrots instead of apple....... but this is a wonderful recipe your way. I recommend this to everyone. Oh yeah, I wait to add the sauerkraut till the meat has cooked at least halfway.

    I thought it was pretty good, the picky one was very enthusiastic. I have an older crockpot, and I thought that the times were still a bit too long. I had chunked the apple, and next time I'll leave it in bigger segments, as it disappeared. Liked the slight touch of sweetness. My sauerkraut seemed to be a bit overcooked, was quite dark. Probably will try to limit to 8 hrs.

    I didn't have white wine, so I used red instead. Worked just fine. I didn't have a fresh onion so I substituted 2 Tbs of onion powder. It was a delicious dish. I had never made ribs in the crock pot before, but these were so tender.


I am a mother of three and live in central Pennsylvania. My children were very active in after school activities and found we weren't spending anytime together at meal time. In 1998, I decided to start cooking my dinners in a crockpot so that we could have a home cooked meal together once everyone came home. My children now get so excited to see what we are having to eat and love the smell when they walk in the door. My family calls me the crock pot queen. LOL I use my crock pot everyday of the year. <br> <br>My three children are now in college and before they come home they request their favorite meal. I still continue to cook in the crock pot for my husband and I. It is nice after a long day to know your meal is ready. It also helps in keeping my grocery bill down. With zaar, I can print my shopping list and that is all I purchase is the ingredients on that list. <br> <br>Now, my two daughters have been crock pot cooking while in college. They find it is easy to cook for the themselves and their friends. It is an easy way to have friends over for dinner after classes <br> <br>I still love trying new recipes and purchasing cookbooks, especially crock pot cookbooks. <br> <br>Happy Cooking!
