MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 6, 2014

My husband doesn't like sauerkraut and he loved this. The apple and corn syrup transform the sauerkraut into something wonderful.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 31, 2009

My husband interrupted his own story to say, "Wow- this is really good pork" at the same time that I said "Holy Jesus is this is a good pork roast."

I made this with a 2 1/2 pound roast. My crockpot couldn't hold the roast, the sauerkraut, the onion, apples, AND the potatoes, so I left the potatoes out and made mashed potatoes instead.

It is by far the MOST moist pork I have EVER had. Definitely NOT your typical crockpot recipe. Absolutely declicious.
