I've been making traditional pork and kraut for New Years for, let's just say, over 20 years. Decided to try this recipe and it is by far the best I have ever made. Fantastic and I'm so pleased I have another whole meal to put in the freezer from this batch.

I had a 3.5 lb. pork loin (which I cut in half), used about 42 oz of jarred kraut, but kept apple, sugar, and real maple syrup as stated. I seasoned the pork liberally with salt, pepper, and granulated garlic before searing.

Delicious quick and easy. I made three minor changes-- used 2 tbsp. real Maple Syrup and omitted the brown sugar, browned the loin in homemade ghee (clarified butter -- you can find instructions online) so I could use slightly higher heat, and left in the oven an additional 30 minutes for tenderness. Will make this a regular.
