Crockpot Pork and Sauerkraut

To bring good luck in the new year, it was always a tradition in our house when growing up, that we ate pork and sauerkraut on New Years Day.  This is a very easy recipe and the family enjoyed it!


3 lbs. pork loin trimmed of excess fat
salt and pepper, to taste
1 T. oil
16 oz. sauerkraut drained
1 t. minced garlic
1 onion sliced
1 C. apple juice


  1. Liberally season the pork loin with salt and pepper on all sides. 
  2. Heat oil in large skillet or dutch oven. 
  3. Sear pork loin on all sides, 2-3 minutes per side. 
  4. Add seared pork into a slow cooker. 
  5. Pour in apple juice*. 
  6. Place onions, apples, and garlic around the pork loin. 
  7. Top with sauerkraut. 
  8. Place lid on the slow cooker and cook for 4-5 hours on high or 8-10 hours on low. 
  9. Remove pork and slice or shred and serve with cooking liquids.

Note:  If you don't have apple juice, use chicken stock with 2 T. brown sugar as a substitute.
