Apple Pork Roast
Prep time: 
Total time: 
This is a favorite use of sauerkraut in our family. The apples mellow it out a bit and you'll be surprised at how much you like sauerkraut after tasting it.
  • 1 pork roast, about 3 pounds
  • 2 cups of sauerkraut, drained and rinsed
  • 1 T caraway seed
  • 2 apples, cut up
  • 4-5 small potatoes, cut into 2-3 inch pieces
  • 2 T brown sugar
  1. Crock Pot method - Place the pork roast in the bottom of your crock pot or pressure cooker. Add remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Cook in crock pot on high for 6-8 hours
  2. Pressure Cooker Method - The only difference with pressure cooking the roast is that you need to make sure you have enough liquid in the cooker. You can use the sauerkraut juice, but it may result in a very salty roast. I'd recommend adding 1 cup of light beer, or at least the minimum amount required by your cooker to reach pressure. Cook at high pressure for 40 minutes (stovetop cooker) or 55-60 minutes (electric cooker). When the cooking time is up, allow the pressure to release naturally.
