🍴KEY INGREDIENTS

  • Pork roast
  • Sauerkraut, undrained (I use the kind that is usually found in the meat department and not in cans, but you can use the cans)
  • Apple juice
  • Onion, chopped
  • Water
  • Dry onion soup mix
  • Brown sugar
  • Salt and Pepper

SWAPS

I haven’t tried this dish with many swaps, I guess you could leave out the apple juice and use more water, or use a different sweetener in place of the brown sugar. I have made this recipe for many years, and it’s delicious just the way it is written.

🍽️HOW TO MAKE

This recipe is so easy, many people ask if we cut the roast before putting it in the crock pot. Yes, we will cut it to fit the crock pot.

COOKING STEPS

Step 1
Sprinkle pork roast with salt and pepper and place in crockpot. (Cut to fit pot if roast is too big)  In a large bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients together with a spoon. Pour the mixture over the roast.

Step 2
Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours until meat is cooked and tender.  Remove roast and pull apart.  Serve and enjoy.

We have used many different cuts of pork but always a “roast”. You could try this with a pork tenderloin it may not shred as well.
