    I have been making this recipe for more years than I care to admit to. It's simple to put together and very flavorful. I usually serve with boiled potatoes.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Melt the butter or lard in a skillet and quickly brown the pork chops on both sides. Place on platter and set aside.
    2. 2
      Arrange the bacon in the bottom of a large dutch oven or braising pan.
    3. 3
      Rinse the sauerkraut in a colander and squeeze out as much water as you can. (You can skip this step if you like a stronger flavor). Place half of it on top of the bacon.
    4. 4
      Place the sliced onions over the sauerkraut and sprinkle with 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper.
    5. 5
      Arrange the pork chops on top of the onions, and pour in any collected juices.Sprinkle with salt, pepper and the garlic.
    6. 6
      Add the rest of the sauerkraut, sprinkle with pepper and pour over as much beer as you need to cover.
    7. 7
      Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook one hour. The pot should never get completely dry.
    8. 8
      Note: I find 2 lbs sauerkraut to be enough, but if you have hearty eaters, you might want the larger quantity. I do not add additional salt.

      This was a real hit with us. We have sauerkraut seldom but we do enjoy it. I used a wine sauerkraut with it's liquid and no beer. Also the idea of boiled bacon didn't appeal to me so I topped the dish with it and then put it in the oven @ 400 for about 45 mins. this is one fine Fall dinner.

      Took a couple shortcuts. Made Quick Fresh Sauerkraut then tossed the loin chops on top with a bottle of dark beer and let braise for about 45 minutes. Turned out great. Thanks!

      I made this as directed except for the sauerkraut, because I didn't have any, used cabbage instead. I did not have 1 inch pork chops, mine were thinner. Still it was very good. Next time I'll use boneless chops cut from a pork loin, that I usually do myself when I have one. Made for Newest Zaar.
