Tammy's notes for this recipe:
This is a traditional meal for New Years. I have been looking for a recipe like this for awhile and finally found one I liked. I love sauerkraut and love meat cooked in it. This reminds me of my childhood and I will be making it for New Years. I tweaked the recipe a bit because I read all the comments as I find them helpful. You can also tweak it to your tastes as well by adding beer, brown sugar, onions, potaoes, etc to make it your own. This is how I like it and I can not wait to make this! Boiled or mashed potatoes and peas would be great with this. Happy New Years everyone!
Make it Your Way...

In a skillet, on medium-high add the olive oil. Sprinkle the roast with salt and pepper and pan sear the roast to give a nice brown outside appearance, about 10 minutes.
Place 2 pounds sauerkraut in a slow cooker. place the roast in the center. Sprinkle the roast with the caraway seeds. Cover with remaining sauerkraut.
Cover slow cooker, and cook roast 4 hours on High. Brown the cut up kielbasa for about 5 minutes and place in slow cooker and continue to cook 2 more hours or until pork is tender. (Do check at 5 hours in as some slow cookers cook hotter than others. My daughters slow cooker cooks really hot compared to mine.)

Girl we must be twins separated at birth. Our food likes are so much the same. If you go to my New Years Black Eyed Peas Recipe, you'll see that my traditional New Years Day dinner is Pork roast, sauerkraut, mashed taters and of course black eyed peas. You just can't beat that meal! New Years Day Black Eyed Peas-Annette's
