Slow Cooker Pork and Sauerkraut

Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 8 hours Total Time: 8 hours 10 minutes

Servings: 8


  • 3 pound pork loin trimmed of excess fat

  • salt and pepper

  • 1 tablespoon oil

  • 16 ounces sauerkraut drained

  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

  • 1 onion sliced, yellow or white

  • 1 apple sliced, granny smith, fuji, or honey crisp

  • 1 cup apple juice


  • Liberally season the pork loin with salt and pepper on all sides.

  • Heat oil in large skillet or dutch oven. Sear pork loin on all sides, 2-3 minutes per side.

  • Add seared pork into a slow cooker. Pour in apple juice. Place onions, apples, and garlic around the pork loin. Top with sauerkraut.

  • Place lid on the slow cooker and cook for 4-5 hours on high or 8-10 hours on low.

  • Remove pork and slice or shred and serve with cooking liquids.


  • Be sure to drain the sauerkraut from the juices it is canned in and

  • If you don't have apple juice, use chicken stock in it's place, but add in 2 tablespoons of brown sugar to help balance the flavors in this pork and sauerkraut. But I am telling you, the apple juice makes this dish incredible.

  • 16 ounces of sauerkraut is enough for a 2-4 pound pork loin. Any larger pork loin, you will want to double the amount of sauerkraut.
