Reviews for Country Pork 'n' Sauerkraut
"disappointing. sauerkraut should not be sweet. will not make enough."
"Great recipe! I used boneless country ribs instead of bone in. I also left out the caraway seeds as I am not a fan of them. I was worried it would be a little too sweet so I sprinkled everything with paprika before baking and it was delicious! Definitely a keeper!"
"Great recipe! I made it tonight and the family loved it. I doubled the recipe and used bagged/fresh sauerkraut, which I thoroughly rinsed and drained. pork was tender, juicy and flavorful. Will definitely be making this again!"
"I make this with tenderloin and put everything in the crock pot after searing--really tasty!"
"Love it! Didn't have caraway seeds so I just made it without them and it was still great!"
"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!"
"It was great I love the applesauce in it! I love serving applesauce with pork."
"Was OK but the applesauce made it a bit sweet. It would be better without it"
"I use this one for our New Year's Day meal every year. It's always a hit!"
"applesauce +brown sugar=overkill. This recipe is better without the applesauce"
