Flavorful German Pork Chops and Sauerkraut

Rated as 4.84 out of 5 Stars

"German dishes are great because they require very few ingredients. This easy way to make pork chops is flavorful and easy to do. By breading the pork chops before you bake them it really locks in all the flavor. When it's finished you won't even need a knife, the pork will just fall from the bone."

  1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C).
  2. Place bread crumbs into a shallow dish; pour eggs into a separate shallow dish. Heat vegetable shortening in a skillet over medium-high heat. Dip pork chops into egg, then into bread crumbs, coating both sides. Fry chops in the hot shortening until crumbs are golden brown, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer pork chops to a baking dish, leaving melted shortening in skillet.
  3. Cook and stir sauerkraut with juice, onion, and caraway seeds in the same skillet over medium-low heat until heated through, about 5 minutes. Spread sauerkraut over pork chops and pour pan liquid over the top. Cover baking dish tightly with aluminum foil.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until chops are tender, 1 1/2 hour.

We are a big fan of the caraway seeds. We add 6 ounces of beer for a broth content while serving along side mash potatos.

This made us say "Wow!" It will be one of our top go-to recipes for pork chops.

I’ve made these twice now and they were great both times! Left out the caraway seeds as I didn’t have any and still great.

I made this for a recent Oktoberfest party and it was a hit. I was worried about portion sizes since there was going to be a variety of German dishes there so instead of going with pork chops I...

Made it just as is and it was AWESOME will make again.

Far too many bread crumbs I ended up wasting half of what was called for. I added a little seasoning to the crumb mixture to add a little zip. My husband loved it. My picky grandchildren who ...
