Wonderful recipe! I made it the first time without caraway seeds. Am making it this time with dill seeds per recommendations. Instead of applesauce I use sliced apples. Adds some sweetness depending on variety and more texture.

The pork, sauerkraut, and applesauce go so well together. The caraway seeds were left out because I don't care for the taste. I made mine in a crock pot and it turned out very tender.

I've made pork and sauerkraut for years, different ways, but this recipe was far and away the best according to my husband also. The only thing I changed was instead of caraway seeds I used dill seeds because I googled what may be a good substitute. It was fantastic. I cooked mine in a crock pot for 7 hours on low and tasted it then adjusted the seasonings by adding more salt, garlic powder and pepper then cooked it an additional 30 minutes on low while I cooked half drained, canned green beans with bacon and onion flakes and cut up a home grown tomato. Delicious!!!

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!
