This Slow Cooker Kielbasa, Pork, and Sauerkraut is a delicious way to ring in the New Year. Better yet, it requires little effort to make. Just set it and forget it!
I am not entirely sure of this recipe’s origins. I got it from my mom, who makes it every New Year’s Day. I do the same now, but also make it at other times of the year.
This recipe makes a lot of food, and so would be great when you need to feed a crowd. It freezes well, too! So don’t feel obligated to only eat it when you have an army to feed.
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 28 oz sauerkraut, drained
- 1 tbs caraway seeds
- 14 oz cream of celery soup
- 2 lbs kielbasa, cut into 3-inch pieces
- 3-4 lbs pork shoulder roast, cut into large pieces

Combine the onion, brown sugar, sauerkraut, caraway seeds, and cream of celery soup in a large slow cooker.
Add the kielbasa and pork to the slow cooker, nestling it into the sauerkraut mixture.
Cover and cook on low for 6 hours.
Right before serving, add the colby jack cheese and stir to combine.
