The pork comes out moist and tender and the kraut is out of this world. I added 3 carrots along with the potatoes and they got a lovely flavor too. Shadow I have sworn off evening snacks but I had to have a kraut and pork sammie before bedtime - Delicious Thanks for posting the recipe 30 June2014 Made again and enjoyed just as much.
