DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 375°F.
  • Heat oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium heat.
  • Add pork chops and cook about 2 minutes per side, turning once, until lightly browned.
  • Remove skillet from heat and remove chops to a plate.
  • Sprinkle with pepper and salt.
  • Meanwhile drain sauerkraut, rinse under cold water, and squeeze dry with paper towels.
  • Mix sauerkraut and puréed pears in the skillet.
  • Top with pork chops.
  • Bake uncovered, 18 to 20 minutes, until centers of chops are opaque and barely pink.
  • Serve with mashed potatoes.
  • Note: My supermarket stores the bagged sauerkraut in the meat section near the bratwurst and other sausages.
  • It really is better tasting than any of the canned or jarred kinds I've tried, if you can find it.
