Slow Cooker Sauerkraut Pork and Potatoes

Slow Cooker Sauerkraut Pork and Potatoes |

I can't imagine any dinner being much easier to make than this Slow Cooker Sauerkraut Pork and Potatoes. Whenever I break out my slow cooker, I'm reminded of how awesome it is to throw ingredients into it in the morning and come home in the evening to a warm, delicious, home-cooked meal! This particular recipe is perfect for this time of year, when the air starts to get crisper and you crave something warm and filling to eat. The pork gets so tender it practically shreds itself. The potatoes add hearty texture. And the sauerkraut provides tons of flavor and keeps everything juicy and moist.

True story: I've never actually made a recipe with sauerkraut until now because in all our nearly ten years of my marriage, I just assumed my husband didn't like it. (He's usually not a fan of vinegary dishes.) But I was craving it myself this week and gave this dish a try and to my surprise, he loved it. He said he's had dishes with sauerkraut that he didn't like, but this one was a winner! So it's worth a try for even your most skeptical family members.

I hope you add this dish to your list of fall recipes to try and that you enjoy it as much as we did!

makes 4-6 servings

4 red potatoes
1 3-pound pork loin
Salt and pepper
1 teaspoon fennel seeds (optional)
1 2-pound bag sauerkraut

Scrub the potatoes but don't peel them. Cut them into large chunks and place them in the bottom of the slow cooker.

Season the pork loin all over with the salt and pepper and place it on top of the potatoes. Sprinkle the fennel seeds on top and then pour the sauerkraut with all it's juices over the pork.

Cover and cook on low heat for 8 hours or until pork is cooked through and tender.
