Country Pork 'n' Sauerkraut Recipe

Publisher Photo
The "secret ingredient" in this recipe is the applesauce. When everything's cooked up, you wouldn't know it's in there...yet the taste's just a bit sweeter. My mother and grandmother once ran a beanery for a train crew. That inspired a lot of my cooking. In fact, I adapted this recipe from one of theirs. Luckily for me, my husband likes to eat what I fix as much as I like to cook it! He and I have three children, all now grown, and six grandchildren.

"This was excellent! For those who say to leave the applesauce out/too sweet - are they sure they are using unsweeted applesauce because I would not change a thing!"
