Ingredients

How to make it

  • Rinse pork and pat dry
  • Season pork on all sides with season salt and coarse ground fresh cracked pepper
  • Place fat side down in hot pot and sear for 5 minutes to render fat - then sear on each side for 5 minutes each
  • Add water then sauerkraut
  • Bring to a boil then turn down to a simmer
  • Cook (simmer) until meat is tender and has fallen apart - about 2 hours or so
  • Keep an eye on the juice level - if it cooks out add more water - about a cup or two more should do it - you want it to be juicy but not watery
  • Taste - reseason if necessary
  • Pick out any pieces of fat
  • Serve

  • I like t serve with a warm crusty bread with cold real salted butter - Yummy!

  • This can also be made in the crockpot or in the oven.

    I love pork and Kraut. I do the same dish using pork chops. The chops come out so tender and juicy that you don't even need a knife.

    Comfort food...and the pork butt is the best! A pot of black eyed peas, pork and sauerkraut says Happy New Year and Welcome 2008 the loudest, and I am headed for the store right now! :)
