Pork Chops and Kraut Recipe

"I love sauerkraut, so this is one of my favorite dinners," notes Myra Innes of Auburn, Kansas. She browns pork chops in a skillet, simmers them with a nicely seasoned sauerkraut mixture, then stirs in sour cream for a fast finishing touch.

  • 1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
