Slow cooker pork roast and sauerkraut is so easy to just throw in the ingredients and you have a meal.

We love this recipe but it is not your typical pork roast and sauerkraut.  It has a sweet and sour taste and is wonderful served with mashed potatoes and cornbread.  I use a 3 quart slow cooker with this recipe.  If you are making for a crowd you could use a 5 quart and double the ingredients.

Slow Cooker Pork Roast and Sauerkraut

2 – 3 lb. pork roast

2 lb. bag of sauerkraut, undrained (I use the kind that is usually found in the meat department and not in cans, but you can use the cans)

1 cup apple juice

1 small onion, chopped

1 cup water

1 pkg. dry onion soup mix

1/3 cup brown sugar

Salt and Pepper

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.   Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours until meat is cooked and tender.  Remove roast and pull apart.  Remove kraut with a slotted spoon.

My picture does not do this dish justice.  Everyone I have ever served this loved it.  The recipe could be halved and you could make this with pork chops or ribs.
