Recipe by: Frankie


3 TBSP smoked paprika
1 TBSP garlic powder
1 tsp salt
3 pounds boneless pork shoulder
3 TBSP peanut oil (or other unflavored cooking oil)
32 ounces sauerkraut, rinsed
2 gala apples, peeled, cored, and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 cup white wine
1/2 tsp caraway seeds
1-1/2 pounds petite gold potatoes, scrubbed


1. Mix together the smoked paprika, garlic powder, and salt in a small bowl. Pat the pork dry with paper towels and rub the spice mixture all over the pork.

2. Heat the oil in a cast iron pan over medium-high heat until the oil begins to smoke. Sear the pork until well browned on all sides, about 3 minutes per side.

3. Add the sauerkraut, apples, onion, wine, and caraway seeds to a 6-quart slow cooker and mix to combine. Place the seared pork on top and place the potatoes around the pork. Cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 9 hours.
