Slow Cooker Sauerkraut Pork Loin

Nashville Nosher 76

"My mother-in-law made a large batch of sauerkraut one summer and to use it up, we invented this (both out of hunger and necessity to use up all that sauerkraut!) It takes just seconds to throw in your slow cooker and you come home to a yummy dinner."

Cookin Up A Storm

This recipe was good, but if I make it again, I would use a cut other than a pork loin. That much time in the slow cooker for the pork loin was just too much. I think it would have worked better with a pork shoulder cut (not as lean a cut of meat) intended for these longer cooking times. I would also cut back on the chicken broth to perhaps only 1/2 to 3/4 cup. The horseradish mustard gave it a nice kick. I would also sear the meat before adding it to the slow cooker (simply personal preference for a browner roast) and add a bit ot garlic and thyme to the "rub". I may try this one again with the above modifcations.


Great recipe. I added a layer of small new potatoes along with the apples and onion. Also I didn't add any Liquid except for what the sauerkraut already had. It would be sauerkraut soup with any more liquid.


This was delicious! Pork and kraut taste great together. Also try kraut and pork spareribs. Pour half of kraut in slow cooker, cut ribs apart and add, then pour in the rest of the kraut and about a cup of chicken broth. Let it cook until the ribs fall off the bone. Sooo good!
