Looking for something to cook up quick for dinner tonight? How about Pork Chops & Sauerkraut! I put this recipe together the other night.
It started with “I should really use up this leftover sauerkraut tonight.” and “Hum; those potatoes need to be used up too.” And then a quick look in the freezer uncovered some good looking chops and viola! Dinner time.
I didn’t really write out a recipe but here’s the basic idea:
- Season 2 bone-in pork chops with a little salt and good dash of black pepper. Brown them on both sides in a hot skillet with a little olive oil.
- Turn down the heat to about medium. Add 3 or 4 small red potatoes sliced, 1 onion sliced, about 2 tablespoons of butter, and a splash of water. Cover with a lid and cook for about 5 minutes.
- Turn the chops over toss around the veggies. Add another splash of water if needed. Cover again and cook for another 5 minutes.
- Drain the juice off the sauerkraut (I think I had about 2 cups of kraut); mix in about a tablespoon of brown sugar and add to the skillet with the chops and veggies. Cover again and heat through about 5 minutes longer.
Done and time to eat!
