RitaR Posted November 24, 2007 Report Share Posted November 24, 2007 Buy one very large pork roast.. picnic style is great. Potatoes, carrots, sauerkraut- large can, and brown sugar, a couple apples, fresh garlic. Trim rind and fat from the Pork Roast. cut slits and insert thick slices of fresh garlic. Set on rack in roaster. Drain liquid from can of sauerkraut do not mash down on lid to drain, refill can with water and let set a couple min. drain again without mashing lid down into the can. Pack the sauer kraut on the pork roast covering every surface it will stay on. On top of this, pack some brown sugar.. not too thick, but thick enough to cover sauer kraut. Clean and chunk the potatoes, carrots and apples. You can also add chunks of celery if desired.. They dry out too much for me. Salt and pepper the chucks of all, and drop into roaster around the roast. Add 1 cup of water, cover tightly. Put in 325 degree oven and roast 4=5 hours.. until the meat falls off the bone. To serve, I put the other ingredients in a large serving bowl and the meat on a large platter with two serving forks. This is a good lazy day or very busy day meal as you don\'t even have to peal the potatos, carrots or apples.. I don\'t. It won\'t last long.. so be sure to fix a lot more meat than you expect to need. Serve with a relish tray or salad for a complete meal. Enjoy. Hint: the broth doesn\'t make very good gravy, unless you like sweet gravy. Sauerkraut flavor is not there.. the vinegar helps tenderize the meat, but you will not taste it.
