This is a much more simple and quick version of this dish. Don't be afraid of the sauerkraut it mellows after a long period of cooking. I photocopied this recipe from Family Circle Mag. My hubby and I loved it, it's a keeper. SOOOO Easy, I put it on in the morning before church and didn't touch it until dinner. My pork chops were not able to be sliced as per directions though (they were so tender they fell right apart!).
