Sauerkraut and Pork with Apples and Onions

Every person I talk to makes their sauerkraut a little different. Our family has German and English descent, so I’m assuming it was passed down from somewhere.  I grew up with the sauerkraut having a bit of the zest left to it.  I took a picture of how I prepare my New Year’s feast. We started early today – because I’m taking some this evening to a get-together.

Sauerkraut and Pork with Apples and Onions
  • Bagged Sauerkraut
  • Cooking Apples (McIntosh, Granny Smith, etc)
  • Yellow or White Onion
  • Pork Cut of your Choice
  1. Put your pork and kraut (and juice) in a roaster.
  2. On one side core and then place halves or quarters of the apples.
  3. On the other side peel and quarter onions.
  4. As a guide, I use one small onion and one small apple per bag of sauerkraut. In my roaster pictured above, I have three bags of kraut. I used two medium apples and one very large onion.
  5. Cook at 250 degrees for 7-9 hours (give or take with how much you have.)
  6. Stir occasionally without mixing the sides and mashing the apples.
  7. When it's cooked down, I fish out the apples and onions.
  8. Toss together the kraut from both sides.
