    I cooked this recipe in my slow cooker after browning it on the stove. It's a delicious recipe.

    I will never make pork & sauerkraut any other way. It was so easy but most of all it was incredibly delicious. The tomatoes had a nice roasted flavor from sitting on top of the roast & The brown sugar most definately is key to this flavorful recipe. Wow!

    It was very good and easy, but disappointed that I couldn't taste the sauerkraut.

    I did all this in a slow cooker ans cooked on low for 10 hours and it fell apart. It was very good.

    This recipe is awesome! When I made it the first time, I only had 1 can of sauerkraut, but it was perfect. It does not need 2 cans. The leftover kraut and vegetables make a wonderful soup with added both and canned, diced tomatoes and some seasoning. My husband could not figure out why this recipe with sauerkraut tasted better than any other he had ever eaten. It is because of the brown sugar. It takes away the tartness of the sauerkraut-but leaves the taste. I have used this with country style ribs as well as kielbasa. This was in one of my Taste of Home cookbooks.
