Pork and Sauerkraut Always serve with a large bowl of mashed potatoes!
4 to 5 lb. pork roast 2 large cans sauerkraut 1/2 cup applesauce 1/4 cup brown sugar Preparation - Place pork roast in a dutch oven. Add about 1 cup water plus a small amount of salt and pepper. Cover and cook over very low heat for about 2 hours. Add sauerkraut, applesauce and brown sugar. Cover and simmer about 1 to 1 1/2 hours longer or until roast is falling apart.
This can also be made in the oven in a covered roasting pan. Set oven at 350º for about 2 hours, then lower temperature to around 300º after adding sauerkraut. Roast for an additional 1 1/2 hours.
It's also a good crockpot meal. Just add everything at once and cook for about 6 or 7 hours on low. I often use sauerkraut that comes in bags instead of canned sauerkraut. It's not quite as salty.
