Slow Cooker Sauerkraut Pork Loin

Slow Cooker Sauerkraut Pork Loin

Jamie Justice Yost 85

"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."

My family really loved this and it was super easy to make. Next time, however, I'd add more spice to kick it up a notch. Perhaps more black pepper, some tarragon and crushed red pepper...
