Slow Cooker Pork With Apples, Onions, and Sauerkraut

This is another favorite from my crock pot freezer meals class (see my previous post here). I like serving it with whole grain mustard and pickles. It's just divine when you combine them with pork and sauerkraut. A must try!


1 small (1-2 lb pork roast) boneless shoulder butt
1 container sauerkraut, rinsed and dried (I get the raw one from Whole Foods)
1/4 teaspoon caraway seeds
1 small granny smith apple, sliced
1 small yellow onion, thickly sliced
2 tablespoons of pork chop seasoning


Seasoning for pork roast such as lemon pepper and curry powder or rosemary and sage with some salt and pepper. Place the rinsed and dried sauerkraut in bottom of slow cooker. mix in the caraway seeds. Place seasoned pork on top of sauerkraut then place sliced onions and apples on top. Cook on low for 6 hours.

MAKE AHEAD: Place all ingredients in a freezer bag. You can place directly in slow cooker but you may have to increase the cook time by 1-2 hours. Pork will become tough if cooked on high so know your slow cooker and make sure it will only simmer, not boil the contents.
