This recipe was adapted from one my mom used to make when I was growing up. It has all of our favorite "fall" flavors, such as apples, pork roast, sauerkraut and potatoes. I often coat the slow cooker insert with cooking spray to prevent the potatoes and meat from sticking.—Tonya Swain, Seville, Ohio

I made this a month ago and the family loved it. Great flavor and very filling. I am making it again tonight, only this time I will place the pork loin on the bottom to absorb more of the flavors

Great recipe, great flavor , but not enough sauerkraut for this amount of meat. I used two cans and less potatoes,since it did not all fit in the large Rival Crock Pot.

Excellent!! I had lots of family in town this weekend so I doubled the recipe to make sure there was enough. I fed 13 people with the doubled recipe and still had leftovers. Everyone LOVED the combination of flavors in this meal . . . truly delicious!! We enjoyed every bite!!
