    Had similar dishes in Germany while visiting. Enjoyed as written and have used green beans in place of apples as well as potatoes, boiled or baked leftovers, in place of pierogi. All have been equally good.

    If you do not like Sauerbraten, you will not like this. We enjoyed it and would serve next time with red cabbage.

    Tonight, I made this. All I told my husband was I’m making him pork chops and pierogies. He loves that with mushroom gravy. He was disappointed to see that I tried something. However, after having supper, he told me this: “Mushroom Gravy is no longer his favorite. “ thanks for this recipe!!

    This is so easy and filling! We loved this and will make it again! We put good color on the chops. Then while we were sautéing the onion, we put the chops in the oven to finishes them off. So tender!

    This is an excellent recipe. I used fresh pierogies from a shop in my area. I bought half potato/onion and half sauerkraut. Tasted great, I will definitely make again.
