  • 1 14-1/2-ounce can sauerkraut with caraway seed, rinsed and drained
  • 1 2-1/2-pound boneless pork shoulder or sirloin roast
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup creamy Dijon-style mustard blend
  • 1 cup beer or nonalcoholic beer
  • 8 slices rye bread, toasted
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese (4 ounces)


Step 1

Place sauerkraut in a 3-1/2- or 4-quart electric crockery cooker lined with a Reynolds® Slow Cooker Liner.

Step 2

Trim fat from meat. Sprinkle meat lightly with salt and pepper. Spread 2 tablespoons of the mustard blend over meat. Place meat on top of sauerkraut. Add beer.

Step 3

Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 10 hours or until meat is tender. (Or, cover and cook on high-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours.) Transfer meat to a cutting board. Cool slightly.

Step 4

Using two forks, shred meat apart; discard fat. Drain sauerkraut; set aside. Discard cooking liquid. Spread remaining mustard blend on one side of each bread slice. Top with sauerkraut and meat. Sprinkle with cheese.

Step 5

Place sandwiches on unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 3 to 4 inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until cheese is melted.
