Crock Pot Pork and Sauerkraut
This is a great recipe that layers some super flavors that work really well against pork in this Crock Pot Pork and Sauerkraut Recipe. Apple is a well known flavor against pork. Apple sauce is often served with pork roast, and the slightly tangy flavor of the apple sauce is perfect with the sweet over tones of pork. Here the apple is used again, in concert with sauerkraut and brown sugar as well as vinegar. This pot pourri of sweet apple and sharp and sour flavors of vinegar and sauerkraut mellow each other out as they sit and cook for several hours in the crock pot. This process is one of the best things about the crock pot and cooking with it. Foods can comingle for hours at a low temperature, and as they do, they each mellow and influence, as well as deepen each other’s flavors. The result? A wonderfully rich and tangy sauce that complements the sweet pork beautifully. And that is just what happens with this dish.
