    Lorac's Note:

    I can still picture my Polish grandmother cooking this on a wood stove. The sauerkraut picks up the browned pork color and flavor. The beans mellow the sauerkraut's bite by absorbing some of the sour taste while adding an unique flavor to the dish.

      I'm a latecomer to sauerkraut, but after this dinner I'm converted! Just delicious. Instead of beans, I added minced red onion to the skillet. And instead of water, I used some homemade chicken stock. Simple ingredients and cooking procedure for outstanding results. The pork was perfect with crispy pan fried potatoes and sides of fresh steamed broccoli and cauliflower. This is a winner! I will DEFinitely make it again!

      My entire family (both sets of grandparents) is Polish and I often make sauerkraut and pork chops with homemade applesauce. The acid in the kraut tenderizes the meat while it cooks. My grandmother often made very simple food that tasted extraordinary. Never heard of having beans in this, though.
