My version of Crock Pot Pork and Sauerkraut is an award winning recipe that our whole family loves. I say award winning, because 15 years ago my mother, modified my mother-in-law’s original Crock Pot Pork and Sauerkraut recipe and entered it in a local newspaper recipe contest. She won! Not only did she get the recipe printed in the paper, she also got a $50 cash prize. It was a proud family moment. This award winning recipe is special to me because it is the perfect culinary combination of my mother and mother-in-law. (PS…they are both amazing women!)
Crock Pot Pork and Sauerkraut is one of those recipes you will want to make over and over. What is easier than throwing the ingredients in the crock pot in the morning and coming home to a delicious ready to serve dinner? I normally whip up some mashed potatoes (instant is fine, too. No judging here.) and dinner is served. If you are lucky you will end up with leftovers. Crock Pot Pork and Sauerkraut is one of those recipes that tastes just as good, if not better on the second day.
Crock Pot Pork and Sauerkraut Recipe
You may have noticed before that I am a huge fan of the crock pot. I use mine (all six of them) on a regular basis. I’ve picked up a few at yard sales or thrift stores, but this Crock Pot is one of my favorites. Everyone needs a crock pot with a lid that clamps on. No one wants to clean up a crock pot full of food off of their floor mats. I am speaking from real life experience. Baked beans cannot be salvaged once the crock pot spills over on a sharp turn in the car ride. Dang!!
