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!

  2. 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.
  3. 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.
