Pork and Sauerkraut Sandwiches for #SundaySupper

Pork and Sauerkraut Sandwich

This week our Sunday Supper group is taking it low and slow. Laid back, Jack. Take it slow, Flo.

Slow and low as in slow cooked meals. Thanks Susan for hosting this event! You can thank her in person at Girl in the Little Red Kitchen .
I admit I’m not much of a slow cooker fan but I do think mine makes a tasty roast. With that in mind, I chose to do something with the pork roast staring at me every time I opened the freezer.

Not literally staring at me, you know what I mean. 😉
So this isn’t much of a recipe but if you like pulled pork, pork and sauerkraut or even hot dogs with sauerkraut this is a good choice for a picnic instead of pork bbq style or sloppy joes.
Sauerkraut acts as a natural meat tenderizer and has enough salt that all you need add is some fresh ground pepper. The sauerkraut’s flavor seeps into the meat.
Place 2 lbs of fresh sauerkraut (not canned, bagged will work fine) in the bottom of your slowcooker. Add one boneless pork roast about 4 lbs. Set the cooker on high and time for 6 hours but check at five. Turn the roast over about halfway through the cooking time. Meat should flake apart. Garnish with parsley and serve with hearty rolls like steak rolls. Serve with an array of mustards on the side. Optional but it will be appreciated.

What’s the hurry? Here’s more great Slow & Low recipes and ideas from our Sunday Supper Contributors. Enjoy!

    I’ve done pork chops with sauerkraut on the stove and never thought to do the same with a pork roast in the crockpot. Thanks for the inspiration!!

  4. I hardly ever use sauerkraut, but this idea sound like a good way to add it to my kitchen. And in a sandwich even better. And with pretzels!

  13. The smell of cooking saurkraut is a childhood memory that I think will always stick with me. I have never been able to develop a taste for it. I have that cute little piggy spatula too!

    Pork and sauerkraut go together like peanut butter and jelly. Yum.

  18. Bea says:

    I love the combination of Sauerkraut with pork. It sounds like home to me and similar to something I make with cured pork chops. There is just something magical that happens when you combine Sauerkraut with pork…Oh, I am so hungry now :)

  23. My husband loves sauerkraut and I’m sure he’d love these sandwiches! Pulled pork in the slow cooker is the best.

  24. I love me some pork! Love your addition of the sauerkraut!

  25. I love this! I’ve done pork roasts in the slow cooker, but never with sauerkraut! It makes a lot of sense to me that it would help to tenderize the meat too. Pinning this to make for my husband and family when they come to visit. It’s perfect for them!!
