Slow Cooker Pork and Sauerkraut

Slow Cooker Pork and Sauerkraut

Super-easy slow-cooked pork tenderloin with sauerkraut and potatoes. Use a slow cooker liner for effortless cleanup. This is also good served with mashed potatoes if you don’t want to use the whole baby ones. I usually double the recipe as the leftovers are even better the next day.

Prep: 10 mins Cook: 8 hrs Total: 8 hrs 10 mins Servings: 4


1 (1 pound) whole pork tenderloin

1 (24 ounces) bag baby potatoes, unpeeled (optional)

1 (20 ounces) can sauerkraut, undrained

1 cup of water

1/4 cup butter, cubed

salt and ground black pepper to taste


Place whole pork tenderloin into a slow cooker. Arrange potatoes around the pork; pour the sauerkraut and juice over the pork and potatoes. Add butter cubes, salt, and black pepper. Cook on low until pork is tender, 8 to 10 hours. Add more water after 8 hours if the mixture seems dry.
