Pork Loin With Sauerkraut

Pork Loin with Sauerkraut
1 1½-pound boneless pork tenderloin roast (trimmed of excess fat) 1/8 tsp salt ½ tsp freshly ground pepper 1 tsp canola oil 1 2-pound package of sauerkraut, rinsed and drained 1 small yellow onion, chopped 1 Granny Smith apple, cored and chopped 2 tsp caraway seeds ½ c. apple juice, no sugar added
Sprinkle the pork with the salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork and brown about six minutes.
Place sauerkraut, onion, apple, and caraway seeds in the slow cooker; stir to mix. Place the pork on top of the mix, then pour apple juice over all. Cover and cook until pork is fork tender – 4-5 hours on high or 8-10 hours on low.
Transfer pork to a platter and cut into 6-8 slices. Spoon sauerkraut mix around pork.
Rinsing the sauerkraut drastically reduces its sodium content.
Here's the nutrition info directly from the WW recipe:
Makes 6 servings. Per serving (1 slice pork and 3/4 cup sauerkraut mixture): 193 Cal, 5 g Fat, 2 g Sat Fat, 67 mg Chol, 700 mg Sod, 11 g Carb, 4 g Fib, 25 g Prot, 51 mg Calc. Points: 3
The original recipe, however, called for light beer instead of diet ginger ale or apple juice, so the numbers may be slightly off. Hope that helps.
