salt and pepper

1 pound butter

5 large onions, coarsely chopped or sliced

dash of salt

2 large jars sauerkraut, drained

sm-med onion, processed fineish

Preheat oven to 350*F, place pork in roaster and "brown" in oven for 10-15 minutes on one side, then flip and brown 10 minutes on second side. Remove from roaster and place in slow cooker on low. Scrape bits from bottom of roaster that pork was in, leaving all juices in roaster, and add drained sauerkraut to roaster. Add onion and brown sugar and a jar of water for each jar of sauerkraut, bake for 30 minutes. Stir, add another jar of water if needed, back into oven for 30 minutes, add more water if needed and taste, adjusting seasonings if needed. Add pork to sauerkraut and return to oven. 


Melt butter in large saucepan, add onions and a pinch of salt and cook until onions are translucent and soft.
