- 1/2 tablespoon oil

Drizzle oil on the bottom of the Dutch Oven. Heat on medium-high heat.
Lightly salt and pepper both sides of the pork roast. When Dutch Oven is heated, brown roast on both sides for about 3-4 minutes per side.
Sprinkle brown sugar on top of the pork roast and lay butter pieces on top of the sugar. Put the lid on the Dutch Oven and place in the oven. Cook for 1 hour.
Carefully remove from the oven and add the sauerkraut. Reduce heat to 325 degrees; cover and cook for 2 additional hours.
Browned pork roast with buttered brown sugar. Delicious tastes when blended, and even better when mixed with your favorite sauerkraut.
You can also add some apple slices to the dutch oven as well. Just peel two fresh apples, slice and add to the pot with the sauerkraut.
What type of Pork Works Best for This Recipe?
For this pork recipe, we prefer a pork loin roast. Cooked on lower temperatures for less time, the pork roast does not dry out and pairs perfectly with the sauerkraut.
