    Yum Yum! Used boneless pork chops and did the whole thing in the slow cooker. Excellent fare! Used a teeny bit more sugar than called for; I have made a similar thing before with ribs, but the addition of the onions to the kraut was awesome! In my top ten recipes of all of Zaar! Thanks!

    The Sauerkraut was really good but almost too sweet and I didn't even use the full 2 tbsps of brown sugar. Next time I'll try it with just half a tablespoon. My pork chops didn't turn out that great either but that's all my fault - for some reason I never like the pork chops I make... haven't figured out the secret yet! Looking forward to making the kraut with some sausages.


I have been connected with the military all my life - either as a dependent or on active duty. I have traveled the globe & picked up many "foreign" recipes. I love to cook, especially for a large crowd. My favorites were those I learned by watching someone cook a native dish. My all time favorites are the recipes I learned to fix while stationed in Iran. YUM!!
