Slow Cooker Garlic Seared Pork and Kraut
Equipment Needed
  • 3-4 lbs pastured pork butt or roast
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • Unrefined sea salt, to taste (this is my favorite unrefined sea salt)
  • Ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tbl butter, organic and pastured if possible
  • ½ cup homemade bone broth, optional (learn to make bone broth here)
  • 1 jar Bubbies Sauerkraut or homemade
  1. Turn a burner onto medium-high heat; put 2 Tbl butter in a cast iron or other large pan
  2. Liberally season your pork butt or roast with unrefined sea salt and pepper
  3. Sear pork (brown it on all sides) and then place into your slow cooker
  4. Massage minced garlic onto pork; add broth if you have a leaner cut of meat
  5. Cook on low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours
  6. Once the meat is done cooking, turn slow cooker on warm; remove pork and shred.
  7. Place shredded pork back into the slow cooker and dump the whole jar of sauerkraut into the slow cooker.
  8. Let sit for 30-45 minutes to marinate.
  9. Top pork and kraut on homemade mashed potatoes and enjoy with steamed green beans.
