Pork Loin with Sauerkraut and Apples
This is a traditional German dish often served on New Year’s Day for good luck. The cooked apples, onions, and kraut are sometimes served over mashed potatoes. It might sound like a crazy combination, but the flavors meld to create a sweet and savory sauce. Try them over cauliflower mashed potatoes to soak up all that goodness.
