This recipe from All Recipes caught my attention the other day but I made a few changes, and it was delicious. If you like sauerkraut, you may want to try this recipe. I used homemade sauerkraut but, of course, you can use canned. I used half of a pork loin instead of a pork roast. When pork loins are on sale, I buy them, cut them in half, vacuum seal them and freeze them. Half a pork loin gives us at least two meals.
Here’s the recipe in photos. Below will be a printable recipe.
First, I fried 6 strips of bacon, then seasoned the pork and browned it lightly in the bacon grease. Just before the meat was browned, I added cubed potatoes.
Once the pork was brown enough, I removed it to the slow cooker and continued browning the potatoes.
Just before the potatoes were browned, I added sliced onions and chopped garlic.
Once the onions were lightly browned, the potatoes, onions and garlic were poured on top of the pork in the crockpot.
The bacon was crumbled on top of the potato mixture.
Next came the layer of sauerkraut, which was sprinkled with caraway seeds.
