Crock Pot Pork and Sauerkraut

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 3 lbs Country Style Boneless Ribs
  • 1 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 1 Yellow Onion, thick sliced
  • 3 cloves Garlic, pressed or finely minced
  • 1 Apple, diced large
  • 1 (24 oz) jar Good German Sauerkraut
  • 1 Tbsp Caraway Seeds
  • 1/2 cup Apple Juice


Heat a 12" skillet over med-high heat. When hot, add the olive oil, then all of the ribs. Let them brown on one side for 4 minutes or long enough to get some color. Salt and pepper the ribs.

Flip the ribs over and do the same on that side.

Add the ribs and juices from the skillet to a 6 qt or larger slow cooker.

Add the sliced onion and the garlic over the top of the ribs.

Sprinkle the caraway seeds over the ribs/onion.

Drain 1/2 of the sauerkraut juice and set aside. Dump the sauerkraut and remaining juice over the meat/onions.

Add the apple and then the apple juice.

Cook on Low for 8 hours or High for 4 hours, or until the ribs are fall apart tender.

Taste for salt and tartness. Use the remaining sauerkraut liquid only if you want the results to be more tart in flavor.

Serve hot.
