Crockpot Corned Beef and Sauerkraut

If you like your beef corny and your kraut sour, then this one's for you.

Corned Beef and Sauerkraut

2 lb. bag of sauerkraut
1 medium onion
1 small to medium corned beef brisket

Place the sauerkraut in the bottom of the crockpot.
Cut the onion in half lengthwise, then slice it
crosswise and add pieces to the crockpot. Put the
corned beef brisket on top of the sauerkraut and
onion and add the seasoning packet that came with
the brisket.

If you want to tame the kraut taste a little, add
one or two tablespoons of sugar. Turn the crockpot
on high and go get busy. When done, the meat falls
to pieces. Sauerkraut tenderizes tough cuts of meat
when you cook them with it.
