I did not follow the recipe exactly, but I did take the main idea from Suzy. It was incredibly easy. I just tossed the kraut on top of the roast, threw the spices, onions, etc. into my 4-quart Nesco. Since there was just the two of us, I only used a 3 lb. pork roast.
I Covered it and let it cook for about 7 hours. The first hour was high heat, then I turned it to about 250 degrees.
Every now and then I picked up the cover and gave it a stir.
That's about it.
The roast turned out nice and tender, falling apart as I sliced it.
Suzy says that it is lucky to eat sauerkraut at the beginning of the new year. I hope this is still considered the beginning. I could use some luck if I decide to go back and play those EBAY machines again.
