To use a slow cooker to make pork ribs and sauerkraut, add 2 pounds of country-style pork ribs to the slow cooker with 1 sliced cooking apple, 1 sliced onion, 3 tablespoons brown sugar, 1 teaspoon caraway seeds, 1/4 cup apple juice, and 1 can of sauerkraut. If using Bavarian sauerkraut, omit the caraway seeds. Cover the slow cooker, and cook on low for eight to 10 hours.
For both stove top and oven preparation, the pork ribs are browned in a Dutch oven with 2 tablespoons cooking oil. The browned ribs are removed and set aside. A medium sliced onion is then cooked in the Dutch oven until soft. Add 6 medium new potatoes, quartered. Place the ribs on the potatoes, and cover with 1 can of sauerkraut and 1/2 cup white wine, chicken stock or apple juice.
Cover, and simmer on the stove for two to three hours. This recipe may also be cooked in an oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for the same amount of time.Learn more about Cooking
