I'm kind of in love with my Crock Pot right now. Today is the third time I've used it this week. My dinner plans had to change up a bit at the last minute when I discovered that my butternut squash was rotting on the shelf. I had to think fast and come up with a new plan, so I started looking around the fridge and pantry, and this is what I've come up with...
4 boneless pork chops (You can use bone-in, but this is what I had in the freezer.)
1 2lb bag of sauerkraut
2 large apples, peeled, cored and diced
1 medium yellow onion, halved, peeled and sliced
4 cloves of garlic, minced
1 cup of apple cider or juice
I was going to do this in two slow cooker liners because my husband hates sauerkraut, but after I prepped it all, I discovered that one of the bags was leaking. I started by putting the frozen pork chops in the bag, 3 in one bag, and 1 in another. The bag with three chops got the whole bag of kraut.
I added some sliced onion to each bag.
Then I added the apples.
Next I put in some garlic.
Then I added 1 cup of apple cider to the large bag, and a half cup to the small bag. When I went to put the large bag in the crock I noticed the leak, so I dumped the whole mess into the crock, then put the small bag in on one side, with the whole top of the bag sticking out of the top.
