Jolean's Crock Pot Old World Sauerkraut Supper

Jolean's Crock Pot Old World Sauerkraut Supper created by PalatablePastime

This is a German recipe that my Mom made for us every New Year's Day. Although my siblings didn't care for sauerkraut, Mom INSISTED that we eat pork & sauerkraut for good luck on New Year's Day back in the 70's. Well, this is the recipe that we ALL loved, and I handed it down to my kids as well...A true tradition in my family, and a recipe that I found in one of Mom's Crock Pot Cookbooks from 1970, but tweaked just a bit so we all would like it! Truly yummy, totally filling, and the switch-up she made to using "Bavarian" sauerkraut makes all the difference in taste! Both of my ex-DH's love this recipe and brag about it to other people to this day...

    This recipe sounds great in theory. But I recently did another bratwurst slow cooker recipe. That one went on high for 4 hours. By the end of the cooking time, the brats had no consistency/were no longer firm and were utterly tasteless. I'm concerned that a 7 to 8 hour cook time will be even worse.

    How heartwarming and comforting! I often make a variation of this kraut dish on occasion, although I rarely, if at all, have added potatoes to the mix. I really enjoyed them here! Using the crock pot makes the sauerkraut really tender. I am sure I will be using this variation again in the future! ~Sue
