Simple Supper Monday - Volume 32: Pork and Sauerkraut

For many, October brings images of Harvesty things, Halloween, pumpkins and multi-colored leaves. For others, it brings visions of German things in honor of Octoberfest: beers, bratwurst, and sauerkraut.

In honor of this festive time of year, I am posting a very simple recipe involving Sauerkraut. We made this the other night, for a simple and easily put together dinner. Now, sauerkraut is not for the faint of heart, and I know it does not agree with every one's palate. So if this recipe does nothing for you, I won't be offended. But, for those who enjoy German fare (or my Mom, who just enjoys sauerkraut), this SIMPLE slow cooker recipe is for YOU! (disclosure: I am in NO way German, and neither is my husband. We just happen to enjoy Sauerkraut. Especially on Hotdogs).

Pork and Sauerkraut

  • 4 Center Cut Pork Chops, trimmed of fat
  • 1 large can of Sauerkraut

Arrange Pork Chops on the bottom of the slow cooker. Pour can of sauerkraut over pork chops. Cook on low for 5-6 hours (alter for your particular slow cooker).

The pork chops come out practically falling apart, and super moist. Some might slice an onion into rings and throw that in there as well, for a little extra flavor.

Yes, it's that simple. And very flavorful. For a fun twist, serve this pork and sauerkraut with some Sam Adam's Octoberfest beer (and, if you have some hungry boys, a side of grilled bratwurst).

If you are brave enough to try this recipe, let me know how it turns out for you! I'm still on the search for warm soup and stew recipes, so if you have a good one, send it my way and I will share it with the rest of the community!

  1. ooh this is one of our favorite meals! YOu know what is good? Place some sliced onions under the roast, and then pour a big jar of applesauce OVER the roast. The combo just enhances the 'krauts pickly flavor...we eat it with mashed potatoes...its delish!
