I know, I's hard to believe any recipe with sauerkraut could even be beyond a two star recipe. All I can say is that in its category, this recipe can give any sauerkraut recipe a run for its money. It originally showed up in the 80's and I have to give credit to Marseille Bienvenue, a local cooking columnist and legend. Potatoes that have been slightly precooked may be added, and using one whole pound of sausage is my personal preference.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown pork chops in a large skillet; set aside.
  2. In same skillet, brown smoked sausage and onion.
  3. Place sauerkraut in a colander; rinse and drain well, squeezing out excess moisture.
  4. Add sauerkraut to sausage and onion.
  5. Stir in caraway seed, wine and broth.
  6. Cook and stir, uncovered, for 10 minutes.
  7. Transfer sauerkraut mixture to a large baking dish.
  8. Arrange browned chops on top; add the optional potatoes, if desired.
  9. Cover tightly with foil.
  10. Bake in a preheated 350 degree Fahrenheit oven for 1 hour.

Delicious! The only thing I added was a touch of brown sugar to cut the sourness of the sauerkraut. That's what the Germans do. We loved this. I also added the potatoes. Very easy to prepare. Thanks for posting. :)

Lovely!! This was delicious even though I did not have wine or apple juice on hand (I just used water)

I have been nibbling on the leftovers all day today! Thanks!

This was yummy! I used kielbasa and the white wine and made as directed. Very simple and good. Thanks GailAnn. Made by an Unruly Under the Influence for ZWT6.
