Flavorful German Pork Chops and Sauerkraut

Recipe by  

"German dishes are great because they require very few ingredients. This easy way to make pork chops is flavorful and easy to do. By breading the pork chops before you bake them it really locks in all the flavor. When it's finished you won't even need a knife, the pork will just fall from the bone."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C).
  2. Place bread crumbs into a shallow dish; pour eggs into a separate shallow dish. Heat vegetable shortening in a skillet over medium-high heat. Dip pork chops into egg, then into bread crumbs, coating both sides. Fry chops in the hot shortening until crumbs are golden brown, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer pork chops to a baking dish, leaving melted shortening in skillet.
  3. Cook and stir sauerkraut with juice, onion, and caraway seeds in the same skillet over medium-low heat until heated through, about 5 minutes. Spread sauerkraut over pork chops and pour pan liquid over the top. Cover baking dish tightly with aluminum foil.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until chops are tender, 1 1/2 hour.

We enjoyed this. I did elect to omit the bread crumbs for half my chops because of gluten intolerance of one of my guests, but that didn't seem to affect how well this turned out. My only other change was to add a minced clove of garlic to the sauerkraut onion mixture. Thanks, Mrs Blizzard!
