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.
