Cooking with sauerkraut can be a little intimidating. It is such a strong flavor that it would scare the most experienced cook.
When we were living with our housemates over a year ago, they made us a delicious dish using sauerkraut and my mind was blown. I tracked down the recipe from her and like a true recipe there were no measurements. So, I played around with it and thought I would share.
1.5-2 lb pork roast
2 cups drained sauerkraut
1 tart Apple, peeled and sliced
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1. Season the pork roast with pepper, I do not season it with salt because of the sauerkraut. In a skillet over medium heat, brown the roast on all sides.
2. Place the browned roast in a slow cooker, add the sauerkraut, apple, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
3. Cook for 8-10 hours on low or 4-5 on high. Slightly shred with a fork.
I liked this with a root vegetable. Smashed potatoes, sweet potato, turnip, or rutabaga are a great option or simply roasted root veggies.
Delicious! The combination of pork, sauerkraut, and brown sugar are mind blowing. This is definitely going to be a go to recipe for the Mosley family.
