  • Ready In

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat.
  2. Cook pork loin in hot skillet until browned completely, 1 to 2 minutes per side; transfer to a slow cooker.
  3. Season pork with caraway seeds, salt, and pepper. Pour sauerkraut and tomatoes over the pork; top with onion slices.
  4. Cook on High for 1 hour. Switch slow cooker to Low and continue cooking until the pork is cooked through, 5 to 6 hours more. The internal temperature of the roast should be at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • I prefer to cook this on top the stove so I can keep an eye on how done the meat is, but in a pinch the slow cooker works fine. I find the addition of a little apple cuts down on the smell some.
  • Also, you can make dumplings (fluffy ones) or boiled potatoes to add to this; it is good with mashed potatoes, too.
  • Easy Cleanup
  • Try using a liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.
