#1167: Here it is- REC Mom's Great Pork Roast and Sauerkraut

Posted by: CathyZ from Kauai at 6:56 pm on Mar 19, 2006


3-4 lb. pork roast
1-2 lbs sauerkraut (the refrigerated kind)
1 large onion, chopped
6 Red potatoes, whole if small, quartered if large
6 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
2 T juniper berries
2 T caraway seed
handfull of chopped Cilantro (or 1 tsp Cumin or Coriander)
salt and pepper to taste
1 C dry white wine
2 cups chicken broth (low sodium)

Rinse the sauerkraut well, and drain. Put in 10x14" roaster. Add everything else but roast, and mix together. Put roast in center of pan and cover tightly with foil. Roast at 325 for 2 hours. Take off foil, turn sauerkraut several times and baste pork. Roast another hour.

If you don't like your pork so overdone, then start by putting all ingredients together except for the roast, mixing well, covering with foil and roasting for two hours without the pork. Uncover, turn the sauerkraut over, make a "well" in the center for the pork roast, baste with juices and roast another 1-1/2 hours, making sure to turn the sauerkraut once in a while. The sauerkraut benefits from longer roasting time.
