German Pork Chops - Sauerkraut Pork Chops Recipe:

Recipe Type: Pork, Apple, Diet
Yields: 4 servings
Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 40 min


2 (16-ounce) can/jar sauerkraut, drained and rinsed
2 teaspoons caraway seeds
4 pork loin chops (1/2-inch thick)
Coarsely-ground black pepper to taste
2 cooking apples, peeled or unpeeled, cored, and sliced
2 tablespoons raisins
4 teaspoons firmly-packed brown sugar
4 tablespoons apple juice or water


Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease shiny side of four sheets of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Place sauerkraut into a colander; press out excess liquid.

Place 1/4 of the sauerkraut onto the center of each sheet of prepared aluminum foil; sprinkle caraway seed over the top. Place pork chops onto top of sauerkraut and season with pepper. Arrange apple slices and raisins evenly over pork chops. Sprinkle each portion with 1 teaspoon brown sugar. Over each portion, spoon 1 tablespoon apple juice or water.

To wrap, bring two opposite ends of aluminum foil up and over, making a double fold to seal tightly. Close both ends; seal tightly.

Place packets onto a baking sheet and bake approximately 30 to 40 minutes (depending on thickness of pork chops) or or until the internal temperature reaches 155°F on a meat thermometer; remove from oven.

This is the type of cooking and meat thermometer that I prefer and use in my cooking. I get many readers asking what cooking/meat thermometer that I prefer and use in my cooking and baking. I, personally, use the Thermapen Thermometer shown in the photo on the right. To learn more about this excellent thermometer and to also purchase one (if you desire), just click on the underlined: Thermapen Thermometer.

Carefully open packets and transfer pork mixture onto individual serving plates.

Makes 4 servings.
