Reviews for Pork Chop 'n' Kraut Dinner
"My Mother made this for our family when I was a child. Always enjoyed this."
"Great recipe that I have used several times. Lived in Germany for a few years while in Army and this is authentic. The only thing I do differently, which I learned in Germany, was the Germans always lightly rinse their Kraut and add apples or in a pinch applesauce to their kraut. But your right it has to be Bavarian."
"So delicious. Brown sugar - brilliant. The meat was tender and flavorful, and the potatoes absorbed the flavors as well. I did lightly saute a sliced onion and add it on top. Perfect. Great company meal or quick family dinner."
"This was wonderful. My husband was in Germany a total of 11 years while in the military and he loved this dish."
