Polish Papa's Pork Chops

Polish Papa's Pork Chops created by Engrossed

This is one of the many favorite recipes that I got from my father (the Polish Papa!). It's incredibly easy and very, very good. The apples, applesauce, and onion mixture cuts some of the sharpness of the sauerkraut. As a result, even people who claim to hate sauerkraut love this dish. If you REALLY love sauerkraut, use two cans with both the applesauce and apples. I usually do this, as the sauerkraut is a wonderful leftover.

  • 6 -8 pork chops (at least 3/4 inch thick, bone in)

  • Place, uncovered, in the preheated oven and bake for 45-60 minutes, or until the pork is done and the coating crispy.

    Yum. Delicious recipe. I used recipe #108410 instead of purchased shake and bake and added extra onion, and fresh apples instead of applesauce. Served it with recipe #148484 and recipe #80681 for dessert. Into my favorite recipes binder it goes!

    I made this for dinner tonight and it was okay. Honestly I didn't hate it but we didn't love it either. I think it was the shake and bake, I just didn't care for that flavor. I would definitely make saurkraut like this again however.

    This was very tasty and easy to make. I used 1 cup of applesauce and 2 cut up golden apples and red onion. I love the apple and sauerkraut together. Can you believe I've never used "shake and bake"? It was good! Thank you for the recipe.
