10 thoughts on “Crock Pot Pork Loin Roast with Potatoes, Apples & Sauerkraut

  1. Thanks for a very informative story about the German immigrant’s’ contribution to New Orleans.
    I can’t wait to try this recipe. I just hope it doesn’t lose anything when I reduce it. It’s just me and it take a while eat all that!

    1. Hello, Yes, this recipe is easy to reduce, cut in half or even fourths. Just use only as much of the spices as needed to coat the pork roast when you sear it. Add as many potatoes, onion, apple slices, sauerkraut as you like to the crock pot — it will come out fine. I have 2 sizes of crock pots and would use the smaller one if I was using smaller ingredient quantities. As crock pots vary in cooking time; I’d recommend using a thermometer to check the meat doneness. New Orleans is such a melting pot of cultures — I love history and found this topic fascinating, especially with my friend’s contribution of her ancesters. Thanks for visiting my blog!

  2. This combination of pork, apples, potatoes and sauerkraut sounds positively mouthwatering! I wish my husband would just give in an enjoy sauerkraut, but maybe I’ll have to make a divided batch and make both of us happy. Thanks for this lesson on the German influence, too. The French and Cajun influence gets so much attention, but New Orleans sounds like a true melting pot.

    I’m watching the weather in your area, and I hope that you stay out of harm’s way with the nasty storms coming tonight!

    1. Yes, the bad weather is coming across the country — to get here any moment now, I have my flash light and cell phone handy: Houston relatives heard tornado in the background — to close for comfort! Hope it misses both us and you folks, too. I’d love to have some of your home-made sausage to add to my crock pot sauerkraut recipe!

      1. That would be fun to collaborate on a delicious dish! I have found a recipe for bratwurst so I know what kind of spices would go into it. And of course, there’d be beer… 😉
