Oktoberfest Pork Roast Recipe

Publisher Photo
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

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 6, 2014

"Loved it! To a single recipe I added double the kraut and I'm glad I did, otherwise it would've been too dry. I think next time I will put the pork tenderloin in the middle so it soaks up more juice."

"Tasted wonderful. Pork was tender and juicy. I placed the pork loin on the bottom of the crockpot and it turned out great that way."
