This is a super-easy recipe for pork chops. I pan-fry the chops first and then bake them with sauerkraut, apple, onion, and brown sugar. Delicious!

  • 4 pork chops

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 tablespoon oil, or as needed

  • 1 (20 ounce) can sauerkraut, drained

  • 1 apple - peeled, cored, and diced

  • 1 onion, finely chopped

  • ¼ cup brown sugar

  • ½ tablespoon caraway seeds


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a casserole dish.

  2. Rub pork chops with salt and pepper on both sides. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat and pan-fry pork chops on both sides until browned, 5 to 7 minutes per side. Place browned pork chops into the prepared casserole dish.

  3. Combine sauerkraut, apple, onion, brown sugar, and caraway seeds in a bowl; cover pork chops with the mixture. Cover dish with aluminum foil.

  4. Bake pork chops in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 45 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).
