Vern's Roasted Pork Loin Over Sauerkraut

Recipe by  

"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."

Directions

  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.

Family didn't like the taste so much - would rather have our pork loin lightly flavored, and our sauerkraut without additional sauce.

A delicious and easy recipe. I was skeptical about the mushroom soup but it was not overstated and I found it balanced the sauerkraut and gave a smoother texture. I followed the recipe except I added 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar to the kraut mix and coated my 2.5 lb roast with 4 oz of unsweetened applesauce to prevent drying. Those little individual cups of applesauce are convenient. Big hit with husband and I'll make again. A good dinner for guests IF they like kraut.

First, I love sauerkraut. Was glad when I saw this recipe because I had a half pork loin thawed out and didn't know what to do with it. Added just a few of the spices others mentioned and no cranberries but I love the way this turned out. I cooked it for 90 minutes.

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 the kraut with no obvious mushroom flavor. I hurried the cooking by cooking the pork longer than just to brown, sauteing the onions a bit and warming the soup/kraut/apple/cranberry mixture in the microwave. This cut the cooking time to under an hour. We'll be making this again and maybe trying adding a few more spices/herbs to it.
