Pork Roast with Sauerkraut
Everyone has a New Year’s Day food tradition and mine is Pork Roast with Sauerkraut. It is believed that if you eat pork and sauerkraut on the first day of the new year, you will have a lucky year.
Now I’m not exactly sure what lucky means because I’ve been eating Pork Roast with Sauerkraut for a very long time and still no pot of gold or lottery wins, but I can say that I have been blessed.
Would you rather be lucky or blessed?
This Pork Roast is super-delicious any time of the year and is PERFECT for a Sunday dinner. This baking method is simple so no time wasted browning the meat and washing extra pans.
A BIG Happy New Year to Everyone from us here at DinnerPlanner.com and we sure hope your New Year is both lucky and blessed.
Don’t forget the mashed potatoes!

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and Spray a 9 x 13 casserole dish with nonstick spray.
Lay pork roast in the dish, fat side down. Spread a small amount of butter on the top side of the roast and then sprinkle with spices, salt and pepper.
Bake uncovered for 45 minutes.
Remove from the oven and add the sauerkraut to the dish.

The meat browns in the oven so no need to the braise the pork roast in advance.
I simply LOVE SnowFloss Kraut – If you buy the Polish Style it’s perfect. Plus, it comes in a glass jar and we love anything in a glass jar.
