Oops! Forgot to get a picture for you.....YUMMY for sure! My husband loves it! I just made this recipe as described although I had a slightly smaller roast. The combo of pork, apple, onion and beer is right on! Can't think of any way that I would change it! Thanks Matty! Happy to be the first of what I think will be many 5 star reviews!

I was very disappointed in this. The more I tried to fix it, the worse it got. I ended up pulling out the meat and tried to salvage it by making dumplings to fry in with the meat. Never again

I made this recipe for our New Years dinner today and my family really enjoyed it. It is really easy to prepare. Thank you for sharing.

I loved this recipe. Wonderful blend of flavor. Remember to keep your portions under control. It can be difficult with this recipe.

Easy Peasy. Accidentally left it in too long, but it was completely salvageable. Definitely will make again, this time keeping a closer eye on the time. I also added yams and dusted everything lightly with cinnamon for an extra accent.

Being Pennsylvania Dutch, pork and sauerkraut is a staple, particularly on New Year's Day. This is, hands down, the most flavorful pork and sauerkraut recipe I have tasted or made. Not sure how someone could mess this up!

Disappointed. I was really excited about this recipe but it turned out to be a dud for us. Ours baked for 3.5 hours and was still swimming in juices - I knew there was no way it'd be cooked off in 30 minutes, so I ended up dumping a bunch off. This probably dumped off a lot of the sweetness. What was left tasted like beer soaked apples and kraut. I'm giving two stars because I really liked the flavor of the pork - it was quite delicious. Unfortunately, I think there are much better ways of getting good flavored pork. This one is going on our DNR list - Do Not Repeat. Sorry. :(
