A dash of apple juice adds a little sweetness, while a bit of apple cider adds a pleasing tartness to this simple and hearty one-pan meal of sauteed pork chops, simmered with sauerkraut and onions. Sweet or tart is up to you, but caraway seeds are a must!
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 4 (3/4 inch) thick pork chops
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 onion, thinly sliced
- 16 ounces sauerkraut
- 1 teaspoon caraway seed
- 2 tablespoons apple juice
- salt and pepper to taste
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Brown chops on all sides and remove from pan.
Add the garlic, onion, sauerkraut, caraway seed, apple juice, and salt and pepper to taste to the hot skillet. Saute for 3 to 4 minutes. Lay browned pork chops on top of sauerkraut mixture, cover, reduce heat to low and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
