Pork and Sauerkraut

Ok Folks… Here is a super simple and simply delicious meal. Pull out the croc pot for this one. You will thank me later.

When I was growing up, my parents made pork and sauerkraut every new years. Some years the pork was delicious, some years the pork was dry. (sorry ma, lol) I also did not like the sour taste in the sauerkraut.

This recipe resolves all of that. It starts with a brown sugar base. The sweetness tempers the sourness. As far as the meat goes, I am partial to the Boston Butt. It’s actually a shoulder cut but when cooked low and slow, it becomes the most wonderfully tender, melt in your mouth goodness you will ever have. Smoke it, crock it, or roast it… you can’t go wrong with this cut as long as it’s low and slow.


1 – 2 lb bag of sauerkraut

1 cup of water

1/2 cup of brown sugar

3 – 4 lb Boston Butt pork roast

Tastefully Simple’s Garlic Pepper seasoning to coat

Ok. Let’s get started…

I start this off by adding the brown sugar and water to a pan, cook over medium heat, and let the brown sugar dissolve.


Next, the garlic pepper seasoning.


Coat your pork and throw in a crock pot.


Add your sauerkraut. No need to rinse.


I cooked mine for 10 hours on low and it turned out perfect!


And I will tell you this tastes even better the second day. The brown sugar, pork, and sauerkraut all get happy overnight. You will love this! I guarantee it!
