"As a soldier during WWII my Dad learned to make this hearty pork dish from a local German woman during the Allied occupation of Germany. I don't know the German name for it, but it is delicious!" — Pat Oglesby

center cut pork chops
red apple, diced
Love this receipe! It's easy and everyone loves it. The only modifications I do is I don't add the caraway seeds and add a dash of cinnamon and pick up the browning from the pork with a little chicken broth and pour on top before baking.
didn't like the caraway seeds.
Delicious! I did cut the sugar down to 1/4 cup and it was plenty sweet.
This was very good and very easy. I think I'll just make it on top of the stove in a covered saucepan next time. If you didn't like the kraut, use canned sauerkraut, the Bavarian style isn't as tart (or rinse it to remove some of the "sour").
WOW! Was this good! I did this in my crock pot and omitted the sugar completely....Don't really know why you'd want a cup of sugar in this dish???
Deleted one star for that very reason. The sauerkraut was soooo good and even began to brown a little in the crock pot. The chops were falling apart and extremely tastey. Can't wait to make this again!
Excellent recipe! Easy and delicious! I used Bavarian sauerkraut which already has the caraway seeds in it; therefore, I did not need to add the extra caraway seeds. Also, Bavarian sauerkraut has some sugar in it; so, I reduced the brown sugar to 1/4 cup. I rubbed both sides of each pork chop with salt and black pepper prior to browning. I used a red delicious apple. Delicious! (I served with the allrecipes.com recipe for zucchini cornbread.)
If I could giver 10 I would...this recipe made me a pork chop fan! Love the authentic german flavors, we ate with buttered egg noodles sprinkled with paprika....thanks !
This was delicious. I added black and white pepper and red pepper flakes to the sauerkraut mix. Was not too spicy at all. Also, deglazed pan after I browned the pork chops with 1/4 cup or so wine and poured it over the chops before I put on the kraut. Will definitely make again. Yum.
