Pork Chop and Sauerkraut Supper

Total Time

Prep 45 mins
Cook 2 hrs

I got this recipe out of a German family cookbook which was compiled by some women in my home town. It's a great combination of pork chops & kraut. I like the chops to be about 1" thick. I believe they're much jucier than thin chops.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Put enough oil in bottom of skillet to cover the bottom.
  3. Brown the chops on both sides until lightly browned.
  4. Remove the chops to drain on paper towels.

  6. Deglaze the skillet with 1/4 cup apple juice, stirring to loosen brown bits from the bottom of the skillet.
  7. Turn heat off under skillet and add sauerkraut, onion mixture, brown sugar,caraway seeds, and the remaining apple juice.
  8. Spray a 9 X 13 baking dish with Pam.
  9. Place sliced potatoes in the bottom of the baking dish.

Excellent... pork came out very tender and moist. I browned the pork chops in bacon drippings instead of oil for extra flavor.

Oh Julie this is a recipe I have always loved. This is just like we make it. When I misbehave I even like to crumble a little crispy bacon bits into it at the 15 min. I have always done it on the stove..I like doing it in the oven. You just let it cook and forget about it til the time is up. Yum. Thanks!
