Are you guys ready to fire up the oven, because I am. This meal is a low fat one pot dream, throw it in and forget about it for a while.
The recipe calls for a can of potatoes, but I used fresh. This is where I get to make the mistakes so you don't have to. My potatoes weren't totally cooked in the amount of time it took for the pork to be done. (thank you microwave and plastic wrap for finishing those off for me) So if you are using fresh potatoes, you may want to boil them in some water for about 10-15 minutes before you put them in the casserole dish. Otherwise, buy a can of potatoes like the recipe calls for.
Apple Juice and sauerkraut. You really do not want to buy sauerkraut in a can, because it just tastes like the can to me.
Chop up your apples.
Slice (and boil if needed) your potatoes and layer them in the bottom of the casserole dish.
Grab some whole grain mustard, this is my favorite brand but there are plenty out there that are great.
drop that in the bowl with the apples and the sauerkraut and give it a good stir.
Layer that over the potatoes in your casserole dish.
Get your pork and add him to the fun.
Clearly you can add as many servings of pork as you'd like. You might wonder why I made so much of the potatoes and kraut when there was just one serving of pork. Well, because I LOVE potatoes and kraut. I ate them as a side dish for a couple of days. Put your casserole in the oven for about an hour. Use that hour to clean up the dishes, or just go read a book and hope your husband smells the kraut and wanders into the kitchen to ask what it is and does the dishes for you.
This smells so good you are going to be very anxious to get it out of the oven.
Talk about a delicious meal that is packed with flavor. The pork gets the flavor from all the goodness underneath it and the potatoes and apples are perfect together.
