How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees f.
  • Season entire roast with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder to your liking. (don't be stingy with the salt and pepper, it's a good sized piece of meat).
  • Place the roast in a good sized roasting pan, put in about a 1/2-1 cup of water. you can also do a 50/50 mix of water and apple juice.
  • Cover roaster tightly and place in pre-heated oven for 11/2 hours.
  • While the roast is cooking, rinse your kraut and put it in a bowl
  • Chop up the onion to your liking and add to kraut.
  • Add the applesauce and brown sugar to the bowl and mix well. You can even add a little salt and pepper, I do.
  • After the 11/2 hour mark remove roast from oven and lower heat to 325 degrees f.
  • If need or pan is dry, add a 1/4 or so cup of water or apple juice so there is just enough to cover pan bottom.
  • Surround roast with the kraut mix.
  • Tightly cover the pan again and put back in 325 oven for another hour.
  • After the hour the roast should be fall off of the bone tender and the kraut should be almost browning a bit. (If not, re cover pan and shove back in the oven for a bit)
  • Uncover pan and place back in oven for 30 minutes or so to give everything a bit of color watching carefully that your kraut doesn't burn.
  • That's it, that's all there is! I don't carve the roast but rather take 2 forks and pull it into chunks. Serve it with peas and carrots and some nice garlic mashed 'taters!
  • Enjoy!!

    My roast was not that big so i scaled the recipe down, it was maybe 3 pounds.I don't care for powered onion or garlic so used fresh grated and it worked out well. I cooked it for 2 hours turned out delicious.Thanks Mikey, wonderful recipe, It is a keeper.
