Slow Cooker Pork Chops and Sauerkraut with Sweet Potatoes |

Last weekend I had a batch cooking day. I made large batches of rice and bean, chopped onions, peppers, and tomatoes, grated cheese, browned hamburger, and batch broiled chicken. Despite all of the cooking, I wasn’t actually assembling any dishes. I was just loading my freezer with prepped ingredients to make it easier to assemble dinners on busy nights.

I know from experience that the last thing I feel like doing at the end of a batch cooking day is cooking! So before I started working, I quickly pulled together the ingredients for Pork and Sauerkraut and put it all in the slow cooker. Pork and Sauerkraut is traditionally made with potatoes, but I love the contrast of sweet potatoes with sauerkraut.

You can use just about any cut of pork you wish in this recipe: pork chops , pork ribs, or pork roast cut into 4 ounce slices. I make my decision based on what is on sale. :)
