Pork Chop and Sauerkraut Supper

READY IN: 2hrs 45mins
Recipe by Julie in TX

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.
