Number of Servings: 4


    1 2lb bag of Sauerkraut
    2-3 tbsp of cider vinegar
    1-3 tsp of sugar (regular or brown)
    1 bay leaf
    1/2 tsp dried thyme
    1/2 tsp of dried rosemary
    salt and pepper
    1 pork roast 1-2 lbs


First, squeeze as much liquid from the bag of sauerkraut as possible. I usually cut a slit in the top and squeeze it in the bag, you can also use a collander for this.

Add the sauerkraut to a small slow cooker, add the vinegar (more or less depending on how tangy you want it- I use 3ish), sugar (more or less depending on how sweet you want it- I use 1 or 2), and bay leaf. Stir until the sugar is incorporated.

Place the uncooked pork roast (you can sear it if you like, but it's not necessary) on the sauerkraut and sprinkle with the thyme, rosemary, and salt and pepper.

Cook on low for a minimum of 4 or 5 hours. The sauerkraut will darken in color and the pork should be tender and it should come apart easily.

Serves 4-6 depending on what you serve it with and the portions you give out.
