Ingredients

  • 4 bone-in center-cut pork loin chops (6 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt-free lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sauerkraut, rinsed and well drained
  • 1/4 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Directions

Sprinkle pork chops with lemon-pepper. Start the grill for indirect medium-hot heat. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill chops, uncovered, over direct heat area for 2-3 minutes on each side or until chops are lightly browned.
Place each chop on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 12 in. square). Top with sauerkraut; sprinkle with caraway seeds and nutmeg. Fold foil around pork and seal tightly. Grill, covered, over indirect heat for 6-8 minutes or until a thermometer reads 145°. Open carefully to allow steam to escape. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Yield: 4 servings.
