This is a tasty recipe I got out of a cookbook from Iowa favorite recipes. Use plain sauerkraut. It is a great recipe as it does not involve the oven in the hot summertime. I snarf this one.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Season chops w/ seasoning salt and brown chops in butter-get them golden brown. Do not worry about them being undercooked.
  2. Brown brats-you can brown them with chops if you are a multi-task person.
  3. Using a large skillet with a lid, place bacon slices in bottom, top with 1/2 of sauerkraut and 1 Tbs. caraway seed.
  4. Put the brats around the outside edge of pan and chops in the middle. Top with sliced onion.
  5. Top with remaining kraut and caraway seed.
  6. Pour beer over all and cover.
  7. Simmer for one hour.
  8. Eat.
