Delicious and this can be cooked much faster! I browned a 1 lb. tenderloin (for 2 people) in a deep, oven proof skillet, then added some of the sauerkraut juice and kraut to the pan to quickly deglaze it and then followed the rest of the directions. Increased oven temp to 400 degrees and it was done in 40 min. Served it with mashed potatoes and buttered rye bread.

Made this for company and it did not turn out well at all. First of all I checked the temp of the meat at 2 hours (the low end of cooking time) and it was well over 160. Consequently it was all dried out. The temp needs to be checked early and often. Also, if you like the taste of sauerkraut leave out the apples, onions and sugar. I think these modifications gave it an odd flavor, mellowed the tang too much, in my opinion.

I made this for my boyfriend, who is half-German, and crazy about pork & sauerkraut. He raved about it! I made the following modifications - I used a crock pot (7 hours on low) and added 1/2 cup water & 1/2 cup apple juice. I also added a little more chopped apple and onion to the crock pot. It turned out incredibly tender and tasty. This is a really easy, quick recipe that I will be happy to prepare again & again.

Wow! This was wonderful! It was so easy to throw together, and after being in the oven for 2 1/2 hours, the pork was SO tender! My husband and I love sauerkraut, so this was a big hit to find! My 5 year old son even thought this was outstanding, and he cleaned his plate. We will definitely be using this recipe again. Thanks, Bonnie!

I made this in the crock pot as a previous reviewer suggested. It was wonderful. I never knew I liked sauerkraut so much! Serve with mashed potatoes and applesauce. Oh my gosh! Truly comfort food!

WONDERFUL! You can follow the recipe exactly and have a fantastic meal with little prep. I added some extra sage and garlic salt and we LOVED it! Served it with carrots: 1 bag mini carrots, 1/2 apple chopped, 1/4 cup butter, sprinkle with brown sugar, cover and bake 2 hours with the pork - perfect!

Couldn't have been easier! I assembled it in a 9 x 13" baking dish and covered it with aluminum foil. It was done in a litle under two hours. I also sliced the apple and onion in quarters, to spread the flavor out a litle more. Typically, I'm not a fan of sauerkraut, but I couldn't get enough of this stuff! A+!

We loved this easy Main Dish. I had never fixed pork and sauerkraut, but my husband requested it for New Years. So after looking at several recipes this is the one we chose. Even my picky eater tasted and liked the sauerkraut! It was moist, easy, and tasted fabulous. A good pick.
