Oktoberfest Pork Roast Recipe

Oktoberfest Pork Roast Recipe

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 for our New Years dinner, it was so good. I did use a pork shoulder instead of a loin roast, we just like it better. This is a keeper!!"

"After cooking for 3 hrs. I found the Pork and potato, kraut, apple, mix seemed so dry that I used my old faithful chicken broth 1/2 can it seemed to make the difference. I would add it at the beginning next time. Flavor was very good just dry."

"Was so easy and yummy. Made mine in a pressure cooker do 30 min. Was wonderful and tender. I didn't have the apple, will try it next time. I used just half a tap of caraway seeds. Turned out perfect."

"My husband loved this recipe! He said it is the best pork and sauerkraut yet. It is very similar to his mothers recipe, but she only uses pork, brown sugar, & sauerkraut. After reading this recipe, I knew he would love it based on what he grow up with. I also doubled the sauerkraut and covered the meat like other reviewers suggested for moisture and it worked the meat was very moist."

"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."
