Put potatoes, pork chops, and sauerkraut together into a slow cooker, and what do you get? A super easy and super tasty dinner. That's what!

This one is ultra easy to put together in the morning and have ready when you come home for dinner. 

Pork Chops, Sauerkraut and Potatoes

Both of the following recipes use the slow cooker. It makes for a quick start in the morning and then just a quick finishing off just before supper.

Perhaps you like Kasseler, but it's so difficult to find outside of Germany.

Unless you're blessed with a German deli close by, you'll need to use an alternative. This is my favorite one.

Peameal Bacon, Sauerkraut and Potatoes

The last recipe is so nice because it also uses the slow cooker. This really is one of my most loved kitchen appliances. It makes for quick and easy preparation of absolutely delicious meals.

Although the slow cooker (Langsamkocher) is not very popular in Germany, my Mutti taught me to use it for so many meals. 

Here, the potatoes, peameal bacon roast and sauerkraut are simmering and will be enjoyed in a couple of hours! What I find amazing is that this almost tastes like Kasseler.

That's why it's my "false Kasseler" dinner. My Hubby finds it so delicious, as well.

1. Potatoes, Pork Chops and Sauerkraut Recipe (slow cooker meal)

Put potatoes, pork chops, and sauerkraut together into a slow cooker, and what do you get? A super easy and super tasty dinner. That's what!

This one is ultra easy to put together in the morning and have ready when you come home for dinner. 

Prep Time

30 minutes

Slow Cook Time

8 - 10 hours

Total Time

8.5 - 10.5 hours

Servings:

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons oil or clarified butter
  • 4 thick boneless pork chops (about 1½ pounds total)
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 4 potatoes, peeled and quartered, preferably Yukon Gold
  • 2 large apples, peeled and quartered
  • salt and pepper
  • 28-ounce can sauerkraut, drained
  • 1 cup apple juice, broth, or water

Instructions:

  1. If you have a multi-cooker (as shown above) set to saute and heat oil. Brown the chops in the hot oil, about 2 minutes each side. Remove and add onions. Saute the onions until translucent and lightly browned, about 5 minutes. If your cooker doesn't have this function, do this in a skillet. Once the onions are done, add them, along with any oil, to the slow cooker.
  2. Add the potatoes and apples to the onions. Stir. Sprinkle salt and pepper over the top. Add half the sauerkraut. Lay the pork chops on top. Sprinkle the meat with salt and pepper. Cover with the remaining sauerkraut and pour the liquid over the top.
  3. Cover and set on low for 8 to 10 hours
  4. Remove potatoes, apples, chops, and sauerkraut to a serving dish. Keep warm.
  5. Set the multicooker to saute or pour the cooking liquid into saucepan, bring to boil, and thicken with 1 to 2 tablespoons cornstarch dissolved in some cold water. Season with salt and pepper if needed. Pour the sauce over the potatoes, apples chops, and sauerkraut and serve.

2. Potatoes, Smoked Pork, and Sauerkraut (slow cooker meal)

Here, the potatoes, peameal bacon roast and sauerkraut are simmering and will be enjoyed in a couple of hours! What I find amazing is that this almost tastes like Kasseler.

Prep Time

15 minutes

Slow Cook Time

6 hours

Total Time

6.25 hours

Servings:

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1½ pounds peameal bacon roast or a smoked pork loin roast

Instructions:

  1. Put the peameal bacon roast and sauerkraut in slow cooker (crock pot).
  2. Add peeled potato quarters to the slow cooker, making sure the potatoes are pushed well to the bottom. Potatoes need to be in liquid to cook properly. Even though there is not enough liquid in the cooker to start, there will be once it cooks for a few hours.

  4. Cook, covered on low to medium, for about 6 hours. Check your slow cooker instructions for approx. times.
