“This is the traditional New Year's Day meal I learned from my husband, whose family originated in central Pennsylvania. It's wonderful, especially served with mashed potatoes and applesauce.”

This was excellent. I have been making pork and sauerkraut in one form or another for most of my life but this by far has been the best. It will definitely be made time and again. I used 3-27 oz. cans of sauerkraut which I did not rinse or drain (I like mine tangy) and that was perfect for my crockpot. As for the person who gave this a bad rating because of Chinese New Year, last time I checked I lived in America and thus celebrated New Years the American way eating the dishes that I grew up on. So please don't give a recipe a negative review because it doesn't fit in with your customs, just don't make it.

Thank you, we really enjoyed this! It had a great, rich flavor. Did add 1/2 cup of beer, onions and some brown sugar to suit our tastes, but this will be a definite repeat recipe. Pork came out very tender and the kielbasa was the best. The flavor of the meat and sauerkraut all just goes together so well. FYI for others, I used Claussen jarred sauerkraut and didn't drain or rinse it. But, you may want to drain and rinse the kraut if you're not a real sauerkraut fan.

I made this recipe because I was dying for some pork, sauerkraut, and mashed potatoes like we always have on New Year...even though it's coming up and presumably I could just make it then. I used pork loin instead of roast because that's what we have at my house on New Year's and I got a decent deal at Sam's Club. I drained the Sauerkraut but didn't rinse (had to run to work!)and added half a bottle of beer and some brown sugar. I put it on high and the boyfriend got home 8 hours later it was burned on the sides - I will definitely put it on low next time. It was really good - the Kielbasa was a nice touch (I used turkey to cut down on the fat a tad)...and I ate it with apple sauce and mashed potatoes and just ate it all on the same fork. New time I would add the whole bottle of beer, and maybe switch to corriander seeds (not sure about the thyme)...I defintely want to use the other half the package of pork loin and make this again.
