Crock Pot - Slow Cooker Pork Roast and Sauerkraut

Every year for the past 30 years on New Years Day I always cook a pork roast and some sauerkraut in my crock pot for dinner later that day. I like to serve buttered corn and mashed potatoes on the side along with a cherry pie and vanilla ice cream for dessert.

Making a pork roast in your slow cooker is really easy to do! You simply place it into your crock pot with enough water to cover the roast. Slow cook it on the low setting for 6-7 hours or on the high setting for 4-5 hours. I like to drain off a lot of the water when its done cooking and then add in either the canned sauerkraut or bagged sauerkraut and cook it for another 1-2 hours.

This has become a family tradition every New Years Day and my daughter requests this meal a few times through out the year too!

What does your family enjoy eating on New Years Day?
