Crock Pot Pork Roast with Sauerkraut

Tom and I have been trying to eat more of what we have in our fridge and freezer and buy less groceries every week. I was digging around and found a pork roast and some leftover sauerkraut and came up with a dinner plan that took about 5 minutes to prep.

simple dinner
All you need is a crock pot, preferably a cute one with owls on it, a pork roast, sliced onion, sauerkraut, and whatever meat seasoning you prefer. One thing I have been doing since I heard Michael Symon talk about it is seasoning the meat the night before cooking. I did that with a seasoning blend and I really think it makes a difference in the final flavor of the meat.

onions in
Layer in the onions, if you want you can also add some potatoes in.

roast in
Put the roast on top of the onions.

sauerkraut on
Top all of that with the sauerkraut and pop it on low for 8-10 hours.

I sauteed up some broccoli to go on the side and dinner was ready with no fuss and hardly any dishes to do!

I hope you all have a great week!!


  1. I wish my husband loved (or even liked!) sauerkraut as much as me. Sans the onions, I'd be all over this.

    In grilling season, I try to season my stuff the night before - even soak my buttermilk chicken overnight and I think it makes a world of difference.

  2. You can add some apple and caraway -

    I love doing pork and sauerkhraut in the 'khrokhkpot' -

    1. Don't you mean Kharaway ;) I am not a huge fan of it, but I do love the apple idea!

  3. If you want to change the name of your blog, I'll come and eat with you! I'm so crazy about sauerkraut and no one in my family will come near it with a ten foot pole! This sounds so delicious, what a yummy dinner but I'm sure the owls made it taste even better along with seasoning the night before!

  4. Sounds tasty! Love the owl crockpot.

  5. Every time I see crock pot I wish to have one! I just don't know where to store it as I don't like to leave it on the kitchen counter. Once I figure it out I'm going to get one and make delicious food like this!

  6. Good job making this freezer meal! I need to take a page out of your freezer is seriously overstocked!

  7. This looks amazing and so tasty !
    Great recipe :)
