Pork Chops With Sauerkraut and Apple

Pork Chops With Sauerkraut and Apple created by lazyme

This is a great recipe for people who think they don't like sauerkraut, as it's very mild and sweet prepared this way. I never would have thought of using wine in a sauerkraut dish, but it's great. Source lost in the mists of time.

ingredients

directions

  • Salt and pepper the chops and brown them in hot oil or butter, about 3 minutes per side. Set aside.
  • Add the apple and onions to the same skillet and cook for about 5 minutes, until the onion starts to look golden.
  • Add the wine and stir, scraping up all the browned bits, and cook for an additional 3 minutes.
  • Stir in the sauerkraut, and place the chops on top, including any juices that have collected. Cover the skillet, lower the heat and cook until the chops are done, about 7 minutes, depending on thickness. Do not overcook.
  • Note1: I've also made this successfully with chardonnay, but riesling is the best.
  • Note2: Sauerkraut packed in plastic bags and sold in the refrigerator case tastes much better than the canned.

    Nice simple dinner. I used a Pink Lady apple which was a little sweet so will use a tarter apple next time. Thanks for sharing.

    A great, easy fall recipe for chops, kraut and apples. I grilled the pork chops to brown them, then put them in the pan with kraut and apples. I sliced the apples rather than diced them. Other than that, made it as written and would recommend it.

    We used 4 boneless chops, it was the right amount of sauerkraut. Following the recipe to the letter the chops didn't dry out, served with a baked potato and the peppered and sea salted steambag Birdseye brussel sprouts. Not a difficult meal to prepare and very tasty! total cook time about one hour start to finish.
