  • Transfer the pork to the slow cooker, cover and cook on low for 6 hours. Shred the pork into the sauerkraut. (See notes)
  • Serve with mashed potatoes and green beans.


Note: if using a pork loin or pork roast, cook for 8 hours. Tenderloin is much leaner and will only need 6 hours or less to fully cook.
