To prepare roasted pork with sauerkraut, mix 32 ounces of sauerkraut with 1 thinly sliced apple, 1/4 cup of chopped onion and 2 tablespoons each of brown sugar and maple syrup. Season a boneless pork roast with salt and pepper. Warm 2 tablespoons of butter in a large, ovenproof pot, and place the pork roast inside. Brown the pork, and put in the sauerkraut mixture. Cover the pot, and bake it at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 90 minutes to two hours or until the pork is cooked through.
To prepare braised sauerkraut with smoked pork, boil 6 smoked pork chops for five minutes, and drain off the liquid. Peel 2 russet potatoes, and cut them into halves. Peel 2 large tomatoes, and cut them into quarters. Warm 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large pot, and distribute 1 pound of sauerkraut at the bottom of the pot. Season with 2 sliced garlic cloves, 6 bay leaves and 10 black peppercorns. Place the pork chops, potatoes and tomatoes on top. Pour in 1 pound of sauerkraut and 3 cups of water. Cover the pot, and let the mixture simmer for 25 minutes, then uncover the pot, and boil the mixture until very little liquid remains. Serve the pork chops with the potatoes, tomatoes, sauerkraut and braising liquid.
