Pork and Kraut Dinner

The pork comes out very tender and the flavor from the saurkraut and tomatoes is amazing, not too tart.

    4 lean pork steaks, about 2 pounds
    2 tablespoons raw rice
    ½ teaspoon salt
    ½ teaspoon pepper
    1 teaspoon sugar
    1 tablespoon caraway seed
    1 28-ounce can sauerkraut, rinsed in cold water
    1 cup tomato juice
    ¼ cup water

  1. Place ingredients in slow cooking pot in order as listed in recipe. Cover and cook at Setting # 3 for 6 to 8 hours or at Setting # 5 for 3 to 4 hours. *Six pork chops can be substituted for pork steak if desired. Reduce heat to Setting # 2 for serving.

    Makes 4 to 6 servings.
