"A great autumn recipe! Pork loin is roasted over a bed of seasoned sauerkraut. I serve this with baked potato and butternut squash. Other seasonings can be added to the kraut mixture, such as thyme or caraway seed."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Season pork roast with salt and black pepper. Brown the pork in the hot oil, about 5 minutes per side.
  3. Mix sauerkraut, cream of mushroom soup, onion, apple, cranberries, salt, and black pepper in a bowl. Spoon the mixture into a baking dish and place the pork roast on top of the sauerkraut mixture.
  4. Roast in the preheated oven until the meat juices run clear and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the roast reads 160 degrees F (70 degrees C), about 1 hour. Remove roast and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving with sauerkraut.

The roast turned out moist and tender but we did not care for the sauerkaut mixture. I did change the cranberries for dried apricots as another reviewer suggested. jessie

A really easy, tasty dish. Everyone raved on it, and said don't change a thing about it. It's added to my recipe box and I know it will become a regular at our house.

We made this recipe tonight and were very happy with it. I was a little concerned about the addition of the mushroom soup (mushrooms and sauerkraut?) but it ended up lending a nice creaminess to...

This was the best and easiest pork loin I ever tasted...will definitely make again!!!

Simply put, this was the best pork loin we've ever enjoyed. We cooked it in a Ninja cooking system and added caraway seeds. Absolutely delicious.
