Crockpot Corned Beef and Kraut

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.
