I just returned from the midwest with a "real" pork roast, and was looking for a good recipe for it. I tried this one. I love sauerkraut, husband does not. He didn't even know it was in there. I followed recommendations of some others, including a whole onion, some liquid (broth), caraway seeds, and liquid smoke added. I thought that really helped. I agree with another reviewer that the cook time is way to long, although I also think my crock pot is super hot. The taste was ok, but the pork was a little tough, due to over-cooking, even though I cooked it less than recommended. Trying to up the taste level, I added a can of succotash I had on hand, as well as frozen corn. I served it over brown rice. Husband loved it. It wasn't spectacular, but good, healthy comfort food. Mixed it all together for lunch the next day, and put it pita bread. It was almost Turkish! Still have a ton of leftovers (there are only two of us), so I am going to try the suggestion of using gravy on it. Should be good. I am a Scandinavian, so didn't grew up with a lot of spice, and this would have fit right in. I love spice now, but don't mind a nice simple recipe reminding me of childhood now and then. Thank you.
