"The jar of pork gravy was a great addition from K Moran. Take care not to over cook. Pork loin can dry out quick. I take mine out at 165 degrees, place in a pan and put in a ice chest covered by bath towels for an hour. It still stays nice and hot."

"This is one of the best recipes I've tried in a long time! My husband loved it! I've shared it with friends and they loved it too. I didn't stir together the sauerkraut, carrots and onions. I just put them on top of the meat with the diced apples at the same time. Just before serving I added a jar of pork gravy. Wow it was fantastic! You must serve it with mashed potatoes! Yummy."
