Pork Chops & Sauerkraut

I pulled out an recipe for pork chops and Sauerkraut that turned out really good.

It is basically onions, apples and sauerkraut cooked together and then layered with the pork chops.

I started out by browning some pancetta and then starting the onions and two, sliced, granny smith apples.


When the apples started to soften, I added the sauerkraut.


When the sauerkraut got hot, I layered the sauerkraut mixture with four nice thick chops that had been seasoned with DP, Tsunami Spin and seared on the grill.


Here it is just as it is ready to go on the grill and then as I pulled it.



For a side, I sauteed more onions and then added Asian eggplant and potatoes.


Here is the finished product. It was PDG, if I do say so myself.

    Das goot. A meal like that will keep the winter chill away. Beautiful crust you got on the chops in the third picture!

    That looks great Bob. Wife is allergic to apples but we both like the pork & sauerkraut mix. Got to try that with pears or something else that she can eat. Thanks for the ideas.

    Kraut is King! I love it! I love it! Your cook looks fantastic!

    Does it mean anything that my name is Schweitzer? Must be genetics.

    That looks super, Bob. How long did you give it on the Egg, and at what temp?
  • BobSBobS Posts: 2,485
    I seared them for about 3 min per side at 400, with some hickory. When everything was together, it went back on, indirect, at about 375, for 45 minutes.
