Pork Chops and Sauerkraut

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by FlemishMinx

The apple and wine (or rum) add a slight sweetness to the dish which counteracts the bite of the sauerkraut. Goes nicely with herb-roasted potatoes.

We thought this chop 'n kraut dish was fantastic! I used my electric skillet, so it made cooking very easy. I used apple juice in place of the apple, and rum, as suggested. The flavors blended together really well, and the end result was tender meat, and a tangy sauce. Delicious!! Thank you for sharing ... This one is a keeper, for sure!
