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, but she also got a $50 cash prize. It was a proud family moment.

Crock Pot Pork and Sauerkraut is an old family favorite. It's the perfect comfort food on a cool fall night.

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 crockpot. 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 crockpot spills over on a sharp turn in the car ride. Dang!!

Do you have to brown the meat first? I usually brown beef roasts before putting it in the crockpot and don’t know if it is necessary or not.

I have never browned the pork first. I guess that would be a personal preference. If you do brown the meat you can probably decrease the cooking time by a few hours. Thanks!

Do you think you could add some uncooked minute rice to the other ingredients in the crockpot?

That's a good question. I've never thought about rice. I guess try it and see. Minute rice would definitely be better than long cook rice. Good luck. Thanks Michele

How long to cook if I used a bone in roast

Michele Brosius

Tuesday 19th of March 2019

I would definitely add 1 to 2 hours for a bone in roast. You can check the temperature with a meat thermometer. 145 degrees is done for pork. Thanks

That's a good question. I assume the cooking time would be almost the same. Use a meat thermometer and make sure the meat is 145 degrees and you should be good to go. Thanks!
