Really Easy Pork and Sauerkraut Bake

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 30 mins

I threw this together when I was really craving kraut. It can be really hard to get good kraut in the UK but as I grew up Pennsylvania Dutch sometimes it is hard to ignore the calling of the kraut juice in my veins. This is really easy and reminds me of when my mother would slow cook pork and kraut for New Year's Eve. Using the lean pork steaks actually makes this pretty low fat. It goes well with mashed potatoes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Put the lean pork steaks (I try to make them fairly thin steaks as this is a quick recipe) in the bottom of an oven proof dish.
  3. Lay the sliced mushrooms over the top of the steaks and then top with the sauerkraut.
  4. Pour the water into the dish and then put the dish into the oven and cook for between 30 to 40 minutes depending on the thickness of your pork.

I can say I have never had the combination of sauerkraut and mushrooms before in cooking from German background. But it turned out very good. The pork chops were pale, so I'll brown them the next time I make this. I will NOT add the water next time either. Other then that, it just needed a little pepper in the end. A super easy recipe, thank you for posting. Made for *ZWT 6* I was on team *Ya Ya Cookerhood*

Super easy and pretty darn tasty too. I used 3 boneless center cut pork chops so they baked for about 40-45 minutes. Made for the Babes of ZWT4.

This was very easy to prepare and used limited ingredients. Took about 45 minutes to bake, but I did have thicker pork chops. The flavor was good. The only thing was once it baked it had a lot of liquid in the dish. Also, might brown the pork chops a little the next time. Made for ZWT 2008.
