This is the easiest recipe in the world, and so good. Serve with mashed potatoes - to make this really easy, use instant. My husband loves this recipe, and there's nothing to it!

This is a great basic one to start with when you don't have a lot on hand I doctored it up with stuff I scrounged up in cabinets: started with 2 huge and frozen solid out of freezer bone in pork chops coated each with onion soup mix got can of sauerkraut added a little mustard threw on some caraway seeds and put over pork chops. cut up a couple of apples and put on top poured bottle of beer over it all and put on low for 8 hours came out so tender and really yummy we all loved it. Probably could have used just a littel more juice but no complaints. I find a lot of items are so tender but overcooked really in the slow cooker so I am away 10 hours or more. So find using frozen meats elimiated need to thaw and prevents the complete disintegration of the meat when you cut it. Was still extremely tender and bone just fell out - will definately make again!! Read More

This recipe has good bones however it's also crying out for a little help. I seasoned my chops and seared them before placing them in the cooker. As I would whenever I make sauerkraut I fried up some bacon until crisp added chopped onion and a sweet apple. A tablespoon of caraway seeds was also added to help make what turned out to be a really good dish. Thanks for a good start Kathy! Read More

I really enjoyed this recipe; however I did add quite a few other ingredients. The extra ingredients are many of the flavors in a Polish stew recipe that uses sauerkraut and pork (Bigos Stew). I first seasoned the pork chops with seasoned salt and garlic powder. Then I browned the pork chops for approx. 2-3 min. on each side. The additional ingredients added to the crock pot were diced tomatoes, onion, 4 cloves of roasted garlic, 2 slices of chopped bacon, 1 tsp of marjoram and caraway seeds, and a tablespoon of brown sugar.

I took some of the suggestions given in the reviews. I haven t tried the original recipe posted but because of the result I m giving 5 stars. I browned and seasoned the chops with a homemade seasoning given to me by my uncle and I also added chicken broth a sliced onion and added 2 sliced and peeled apples that I had on hand. I also sprinkled some brown sugar on top.It was amazing! My husband often teases me that I over cook pork chops and he just raved and raved about how good this dinner was. It made my day especially since my husband is often right (I do tend to over cook pork chops)! This recipe and the feedback regarding the recipe were very helpful. The meat was so tender and the taste was fantastic. My girls don t tend to like sauerkraut but even though it was main part of the recipe they even gave it 5 stars! I cooked this on high for 4 hours and low for 2 hours. Thanks! Mari Beth Read More

Very good very easy and very tasty! The pork chops were falling off the bone when I pulled them out of the cooker - very tender! The only addition I made was about 1/4 cup of brown sugar and it tasted great! I never would have believed you could cook pork chops in a slow cooker let alone have them turn out so good! -Allison Read More

I used 1/2 cup of apple cider 3/4 cup of thinly sliced onions two cloves of garlic and 1 tsp pepper. I cooked on high for 4 hours and on low for two hours. I served with apple sauce mashed patotes and corn bread. This is by far the BEST meal that I have made to date! Keep in mind that I'm a rookie cook but I REALLY REALLY did enjoy this easy meal and will make many more times. My wife thought it was really good as well. Read More

Tried this today and it came out great. Added apple and brown sugar as per the other reviews - the apple flavors blended nicely with sauerkraut. Cooked on high for 4 and a half hours. Will definitely make again. A keeper. Read More
