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.
This dish was ok, but needs some changes to make it a great recipe. First of all, the bacon in the bottom was not right. I think if you cook the bacon until crisp, then add it near the end of cooking it would be so much better. The other thing was that it took way more than one hour to get rid of all of the liquid. I think less liquid at the beginning, or, cooking it on much higher heat for the whole hour would make it better. I probably won't make it again.
Awesome sauerkraut recipe. I made 135 lbs. of Kraut this year and am looking for new ways to cook it. I followed the recipe to a tee, used Stella Artois beer, did not rinse the kraut. The whole family loved this and keep asking when are we going to have it again. So tonight I am cooking it again, trying different beer this time to see if it makes any difference. Thank you for a great recipe!
Without a doubt, the best pork chop recipe I have ever tried. I highly recommend it for you and your guests. I intend to use it a lot from now on. In fact, I will only cook my pork chops this way. They were unbelievably tender. Please try it, you will like it.<br/>I did not have bacon and it was still delicious.
