This baked pork chop recipe is an easy dinner of pork chops and sauerkraut. There are several methods for baked pork chops, aka Gebackene Schweinekotelett. This one is similar to a braised pork chop. The chops are baked on a bed of sauerkraut, so the meat doesn't dry out.
Adding both browned onion rings and apples are scrumptious additions to this traditional German meal.
You can use any cut of pork chops, with or without bones. If you wish you can trim away any excess fat from the chops. Doing so will help reduce the caloric value of this meal.
Serve the baked chops chops and sauerkraut together with boiled potatoes and some German mustard on the side. It's a family-pleaser and you'll find yourself making it often because it's so delicious and so easy.
This is also a great dish to enjoy having if you're celebrating Oktoberfest.
