I admittedly have a love-hate relationship with my crock pot. I love the idea, but I don't often love the results. ONCE AGAIN, I am not pleased with the texture of the meat that resulted. Here's the deal: Adding liquid (what was in the can, plus a bottle of German beer, in this case) to a lean piece of meat makes for a dry-texture. Yes, it fell apart and was tender. Yes, the apple and carrot and caraway added a pleasant bent to the sauerkraut part of the dish. I used Bavarian kraut instead of adding the sugar. BUT THE MEAT WAS DRY, as essentially boiled meat would be! I bet that this dish would be great out of the oven. It's just something about the crock pot......
