A favorite in my family passed on for generations. It is so simple. I ususally just serve it with mashed potatoes and a salad.

This is a great basic recipe. I used pork chops rather than a loin and I added 1 tablespoon of brown sugar and half a chopped oninon. I sauted the onion with a little olive oil to soften them up before mixing all the ingredients together. Then I seared both sides of the chops deglazed the pan with some white wine (and also added 1/4 c. of water) and then put the rest of the ingredients on top of the chops in a covered pan and let simmer until cooked through which which was only 15-20 minutes. This was a very yummy dinner! Read More

I was disappointed....ratings were good, so I gave it a try. Made exactly as stated in recipe. End result was rubbery pork cubes, surrounded by yuchy colored kraut mush. Will not make again, threw it out. Waste of time and food. Read More

Excellent recipe. Quick and easy. I used 3/4c apple juice instead of an apple added 1/2 sliced onion cubed the pork in at least inch cubes & browned very dark (maybe the people who said it was dry made the meat cubes too small?) and after an hour it came out wonderful with tender pork. I'll double the recipe next time to be sure there's leftovers. Read More

I didnt change anything. Sometimes simple is better. Try it the way it is written then if you dont think its enough change it. Great Grandma knew how to make it simple and delicious and thats good enough for me! Read More

The family loved this. The pork was very tender and the apple gave it a bit of sweetness. Good with a dollop of sour cream too. Thank you! Read More

My brother wasn't too impressed. I myself liked the flavor the apples gave to the pork. The pork was a little dry other than that good. Read More

Good recipe. I put white pepper on the chops before browning and omitted the oil. I also added a touch of brown sugar to cut down on the tartness of the sauerkraut. I've also made in my slow cooker. Read More
