A nice recipe from Peter Gerry. I made this for work and there was none left over for me. A true hit on a rainy day. I was able to get by with 1 Tbs canola oil and teflon hot pot for browning. Finished cooking in the slow cooker for about 4 hrs.

I'm afraid the pork was not moist and tender, the potatoes were dry and there was not enought sauerkraut juice to help matters. The recipe was not followed exactly; I did not use caraway seed or browing sauce and for the bonelesss pork loin, I used boneless pork loin chops. I really didn't expect these modifications were that significant and that they ruined the recipe

I personally like mashed potatoes better with this dish, so left the potatoes out. I also cooked in a crock pot instead, High for 1 hour, then on low for 6 hours. Very good comfort food!!

Yummy! I also added the entire bag (32 oz.) of sauerkraut, juice and all. I needed to simmer it for over 2 hours for the potatoes to be soft, but it was well worth the wait. Thanks!

I'm going to rate this recipe a four because my husband enjoyed it and said it was a "keeper". In my opinion, I think you need more kraut for the amount of meat and potatoes. I used a 36 oz. bag (recipe calls for 22 oz.) and felt there could be more. Next time I'll definitely parboil the potatoes as they were a bit hard. Also, I might use a trick of Mom's by adding some shredded cabbage to the kraut to tone down the sourness as well as add more substance.

I made this for dinner tonight. I diced half an onion and 3 potatoes, cooked in 1 TBSP oil with a good sized "dollop" of pressed garlic, added 4 boneless pork loin chops, cubed, just over a teaspoon of caraway seeds, then added one can of sauerkraut with apples and half a can of water. Simmered on the stove for 45 minutes or so. It smelled wonderful and tasted even better. :)

We're not caraway lovers, so I omitted it. Added a peeled and diced apple to the pot. It softens the kraut flavor and is excellent with the pork. Also added a little beer one time, and white wine another in place of some of the kraut juice. .....auf deutsch (delicious)

Like others, I used an entire bag of sauerkraut. I omitted the browning sauce and used chicken breast instead of pork. Very good for a cold winter night!
