Sauerkraut Pork Roast


This delicious meal was introduced to me by my husband's family. Not a huge fan of sauerkraut, I was skeptical, but it immediately became a favorite! There is something about cooking sauerkraut all day in the slow cooker with a good cut of meat that transforms it into amazing flavor and texture. This recipe couldn't be any easier, but anyone I share it with raves about it and wants the recipe. It's a perfect Sunday dinner that smells great all day while it's cooking!
