Pork Chops and Sauerkraut Recipe

Pork Chops and Sauerkraut Recipe

My mother learned to make this dish when she was a young girl in Germany. Typically, we’d eat it with plain boiled potatoes, but for a treat, she’d serve it with steamed dumplings. Whenever I cook this, the wonderful aroma brings back many warm memories. —Erika Taylor, Hopedale, Massachusetts
