I love to cook impressive meals for family and friends that take time and attention, but, baby, sometimes you need a quick delicious meal in your bag of tricks.

Consider this one of them.

Salt and pepper to taste.

(Here’s an OMT! secret: I omit all seasoning because the sauerkraut adds enough. #truth)

Drain sauerkraut, retaining liquid.

Cover each pork chop with sauerkraut.

Add 1/2 of retained sauerkraut liquid to baking dish.

Bake, uncovered at 350° for about 40 minutes, or until internal temperature of pork chops reach 145°.

Rest for three minutes before serving.


Then, enjoy!

I always use a thermometer when cooking pork for two reasons:

#1: Over-cooked pork chops are the worst. So tough!

#2: Under-cooked pork chops can make you sick.

Use a thermometer! You can click HERE for safe temps for all your meat products.

I always make five at a time as well.




Throw some broccoli in the steamer, add a salad and some crusty bread and you have a lovely dinner that is easy, fast and delicious.

Fat tender pork chops and sauerkraut, it’s what’s for dinner, y’all!
