Pork and Sauerkraut


Traditionally served as the first meal on New Year's Day to bring good luck
for the year.


1 (4- to 5-pound) lean pork roast

2 large cans or a fresh pack of sauerkraut

1/2 cup applesauce

1/4 cup brown sugar


Place the pork roast in a Dutch oven or a large, deep, heavy skillet. Add
about 1 cup water plus a small amount of salt and pepper. Cover and cook

low heat for about 2 hours.


Add the sauerkraut, applesauce and brown sugar. Cover and simmer for about 1
to 1 1/2 hours longer or until the roast is tender and falling apart.


This can also be roasted in the oven, in a covered roasting pan. Set the
oven at 350 degrees F for about 2 hours, then lower temperature to around

degrees F after adding the sauerkraut. Roast for an additional 1 1/2 hours.


To cook in a crock pot, add everything at once and cook for about 6 or 7
hours on LOW.


Serve Pork and Sauerkraut with a large bowl of mashed potatoes.  Enjoy.
