Reviews for Sauerkraut and Pork Chops
Sort By :
"Oh my gosh! This recipe is so fantastic I would give it 6 stars if I could. I have NEVER written a review about any recipe before. Honestly, I don't care for pork chops so much because they never turn out very good. My husband HATES sauerkraut. The pork chops turned out so tasty and my husband ate a second helping of the sauerkraut. He couldn't believe how good it was. Thank you for the recipe and changing my husband's opinion about sauerkraut. I will DEFINITELY be making this again. Probably for New Years Eve. :)"
"I personally just do not care for kraut that has been sweetened too much. For this recipe, I reduced the applesauce in half and took out the brown sugar. I C. of applesauce was plenty to take away the "sauer" from the kraut! I also added some white wine. To make it more like a Choucrout Garni dish, I used half regular chops, half smoked chops, and even threw in a few hot dogs if I had them on hand."
"This is a keeper! Yum!"
"This was great. My husband loved the Sauerkraut/Apple sauce combination. My only suggestion would be to check the pork at 45 minutes as mine was a bit dry after an hour. We will be making this again."
"I made this today and it was really really good. I tried to add it to my recipe box and it is in there but it won't let me look at it. What's up with that?"
